In the past few years, there has been a notable change of Asian representation in Hollywood. For one thing, Asian actors have gradually moved into Hollywood as a result of their recognition in films such as The Corrupter (1999), Rush Hour (1998), Lethal Weapon 4 (1998), and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997). Asian actors such as Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh, and Yun-Fat Chow have all been able to walk through the door of Hollywood. And as a result of the box office success of their debut films, these actors have established themselves as stars in the world's biggest film industry.
