Around the world in 80 days

Around the World in 80 Days is a 2004 comedy/adventure film based on Jules Verne's novel, Around the World in 80 Days. It stars Jackie Chan, Steve Coogan and Cecile de France.

The film is set in 19th-century England and centers on Phileas Fogg (Steve Coogan), here reimagined as an eccentric inventor, and his efforts to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days. During the trip he is accompanied by his Chinese valet Passepartout (Jackie Chan). For comedic reasons, the film intentionally deviated wildly from the novel and included a number of anachronistic elements.

Despite boasting of several big stars and containing many celebrity cameos, the film was a box office bomb and ended up generating a huge loss for the studio.
