First Images from the Karate Kid Remake

Here are your first official images from Jackie Chan’s remake of “The Karate Kid”. No more “Kung Fu Kid” name change, then? The remake stars Jaden Smith in the Ralph Macchio role, while Jackie Chan steps into Mister Miyagi’s sandals. The setting has been moved to China, and as you can see from the images below, the Great Wall of China has now become a place for what will no doubt be a kung fu training montage. Directed by Harald Zwart, the film co-stars Taraji P. Henson and is due out June 11, 2010.

    Quite the kick the lil kid has. Seriously though this is going to be so bad. And it’s not the fact it’s a remake. It’s the fact that the main character is so young. He really is a kid and that’s gonna make all the fights corny. Poor Jackie. He should do another flick like Forbidden Kingdom.

    Forbidden Kingdom was definitely better than I expected it to be, and I’ve been pretty negative about this film. However I look into these pics and find myself wondering if Jackie Chan as the loveable master wouldn’t be awesome if the movie still had some of the seriousness of the first film. I mean as long as they dont have the kid fighting grownups ill be okay. If they grow with the Lil Smith and make it more serious throughout a linear timeline with the sequels, it could be good I guess. I dont know. I’ll wait for a trailer.

    The Strongest There Is.
    you must be crazy, Forbidden Kingdom was a piece of trash!

    I’m not interested in this reboot/remake but the stills are impressive.
    At first I thought that was Bow Wow. But damn man, that kid is strong.

    Trust me, if you can put one leg in the air while the second is making you standing, your body is adaptable!

    that first picture looks, how do you say, photoshopped? again, it’ll be fun to see the little prat from “Day The Earth Stood Still” get the shit kicked out of him by bullies, but WTF…
