Watch This: First Official Trailer for The Karate Kid Remake
Okay, here we go. Sony has debuted the first official trailer for The Karate Kid remake starring Jaden Smith as the kid and Jackie Chan as Mr. Han, the Mr. Miyagi like mentor he meets. Yes, technically I think they're using Kung Fu in this and not Karate, so complain all you want about the title, but I think Sony would rather get complaints than lose money at the box office. Let me be the first to say that honestly this doesn't look that bad. I even just watched the original Karate Kid a few days ago and Jaden looks like the same grumpy kid as Ralph Macchio. While it definitely won't top the original, it could be pretty fun. Enjoy?

The Karate Kid, directed by Harald Zwart (The Pink Panther 2), stars Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan, and Taraji P. Henson. 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 his black-eye and offers to teach him both martial arts and Chinese, so he can defend against all the kung-fu students. Sony is bringing The Karate Kid to theaters starting on June 11th, 2010 this summer. Will you be seeing this in theaters next year or not?
