Joined Chan on the red carpet were director Brett Ratner and fellow cast members of the movie that included Chris Tucker, Hiroyuki Sanada, Youki Kudoh, and Jingchu Zhang as well as Chinese basketball player Sun Ming Ming, who had a small role in the flick.

Not to be put aside were the appearances of other celebrities such as Rebecca Gayheart, Quincy Jones, Chris Rock, and most interestingly, the black-dressed Paris Hilton, who took time to pose together in front of the camera with Ratner.

Still a production of New Line Cinema, "Rush Hour 3" finds LAPD Detective James Carter and Inspector Lee reuniting after the Chinese Ambassador is shot during a major address before L.A.'s World Criminal Court Summit, leading them to Paris, France as they track the assassin's trail together. Jeff Nathanson penned the script with Roger Birnbaum, Jonathan Glickman, and Arthur M. Sarkissian all producing.

In related news, amid the joy surrounding the L.A. screening, rumors are abuzz that the flick may not get a release in mainland China due to a scene featuring a Chinese organized crime family that Chan and Tucker's characters take on in their visit to Paris. While the Film Bureau, the body overseeing the release approval procedure, insisted the movie has not been banned, sources close to the film and other distributors in the region claimed that Chinese censors would likely not greenlight a theatrical outing in the country.
