Rush Hour 2 - Jackie Chan (2001) - Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

Here's the famous Emperor Jewellers sign again that hangs over the southern end of Nathan Road near to the iSquare mall. Of course, back in 2001 it was the Hyatt Regency Hotel that was nearby but as mentioned many times previously on here it was demolished in 2006 and the iSquare replaced it.

We've seen this sign a few times on this blog before - not surprising given its prominence at a very busy part of Kowloon - but most recently we had a post from Noble House. Incidentally, the Chairman/founder of the Emperor empire, so to speak, is the infamous *cough cough cough* Albert Yeung (seriously though, great guy...) who has been involved with Jackie Chan in various business ventures over the years - including a housing development I used to live near in Taipo called JC Castle. It was in the news a few years ago when it was discovered that Robert Mugabe had bought a house there. So, it's not surprising to see the Emperor sign so prominently on display in a Chan film.
