One Last Great Action Trailer for Jackie Chan's The Karate Kid
In one final attempt to draw people in to theaters this weekend, Sony has released an action trailer for The Karate Kid (via MySpace), directed by Harald Zwart (watch our interview) and starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith. I'm supporting this movie as well because I want people to go see it this weekend and give it a chance, as it's actually a fantastic new version of a classic film we all love (read my reaction at ShoWest). This is just one of those re-edited trailers with a focus on action and intensity. I just hope it convinces a few of you to actually go see it this weekend! At the very least, all the kung fu fighting in this is worth watching.

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 Dre's 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 everywhere starting on June 11th this week. The time has finally come - will you be seeing this?
