The Karate Kid Movie Trailer

Posted by Contributor On December - 22 - 2009 0 Comment

Columbia Pictures just released this first official movie trailer for the upcoming remake “The Karate Kid” aka Kung Fu Kid by director Harald Zwart (The Pink Panther 2) and starring Jackie Chan (Rush Hour 3, Chinese Zodiac) and Jaden Smith (The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Pursuit of Happyness).

Synopsis: Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith stars in this updated version of the 1980′s film that starred Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita.

While the new film will be set in Beijing, it will borrow elements of the original plot, wherein a bullied youth learns to stand up for himself with the help of an eccentric mentor.

Jaden Smith’s character moves to Beijing with his mother, where he encounters a bully situation similar to Macchio’s in his new locale. Smith’s character will be named Dre instead of Daniel, and take lessons from the decidedly un-Japanese martial arts master Mr. Han, played by Jackie Chan.

Whereas Daniel Larusso and his mother only faced a regional move across the United States in the the first film, producer’s say the script will integrate language barriers and an international collision of world views into the bully-victim-turned martial artist tale.
