First Karate Kid Trailer
12.23.09 by Ryan
The Karate Kid remake won't head into theaters until next summer, but its first trailer is now online. At one point titled The Kung-Fu Kid (and before even that titled The Karate Kid), the remake has the "kid" (Jaden Smith) and his mother (Taraji P. Henson) move to Beijing instead of Reseda, and kung-fu will be the taught by Mr. Han (Jackie Chan) instead of karate by Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita). Other than that, it seems like the remake isn't trying to stray too far from the original story, aside from having the teacher demonstrate the techniques. The similarity may be why they changed the title back to The Karate Kid, even though there's no karate actually in it. Check out the trailer below.
