Final Trailer for Jackie Chan's Kung-Fu Version of The Karate Kid
06.08.10 by REELZ
Here's your last chance to see what The Karate Kid remake will look like before it hits the big screens this weekend. Sony has released this final trailer to tease us into theater seats. Can Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith bring back the new car smell to Mr. Miyagi and Daniel-san? We think so! This looks like a fantastic redo.
One thing you should know is this movie is truly a remake. The only similarities between the 1984 Karate Kid and this one is the title and a loose association to the original plotline. Smith plays Dre, a skateboarding video game buff who moves to China after his single mother is forced to go there for work. Unable to speak Chinese, Dre finds it hard to settle in, and gets beat up by the local bully. Chan plays Mr. Han, a maintenance man who spots Dre's black-eye and offers to teach him both martial arts and Chinese, so he can defend against all the kung-fu students.
Since they changed story and focus from Japanese to Chinese, we're still wondering how they're going to tie-in the title. Shouldn't it have been called The Kung-Fu Kid?
