Action Trailer for The Karate Kid Remake

Myspace calls this the “action” trailer for “The Karate Kid” remake, I suppose because it has a lot of action stuff in it, though not a whole lot more than previous trailers I’ve seen. But hey, who am I to argue with Myspace?

12-year-old Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) could’ve been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother’s latest career move has landed him in China. Dre immediately falls for his classmate Mei Ying – and the feeling is mutual – but cultural differences make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre’s feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts “the karate kid” on the floor with ease. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre realizes that facing down the bullies will be the fight of his life.

Starring Jackie Chan, Jaden Smith, Taraji P. Henson, Tess Liu, Harry Van Gorkum, Han Wen Wen, and directed by Harald Zwart.

Hit them and don’t get hit June 11, 2010.

    It takes on the clssic fish out of waterstory with a very nice eastern twist. I like how the philosophy of Kung-Fu plays a large part of the film and Dre's training, even moreso than in the original and it's sequel. And the script works well with Jackie's comdeic timing. I look forward to it.
