The Karate Kid will star martial arts phenom and movie actor Jackie Chan along side with up-and-coming actor Jaden Smith, the son of Academy Award nominee Will Smith. Jaden Smith has been in a few movies as a youngster, but this is his first headlining role, playing as Dre Parker. Dre Parker and his mother move to Beijing, China to start a new life. Being an outsider and not of Chinese decent, Dre is bullied by a local martial arts gang at school and in his neighborhood. During one scene, Dre is jumped by the gang in pursuit to beat him up, when Mr. Han (Jackie Chan) pops out of nowhere to defend Dre. Mr. Han than takes Dre under his wing to teach him how to defend himself, so he can face these bullies, and stand up to them. It appears, towards the end of the movie, Dre enters a Karate Tournament to fight and compete against some of the gang members. If you watched the original, than you know the outcome :) However, if you haven't seen the original The Karate Kid... you are missing out!!! Though this remake of The Karate Kid will be difficult to stand up to the original, which started Ralph Machio and Pat Morita, the trailer looked very interesting. It seems as though Jaden Smith had been training for awhile to develop his skills as a Martial Artist. Than again, at such a young age, kids pickup very quickly the moves and techniques in Karate. As a practitioner for 20 years, I've seen many amazing sports martial arts competitors from kids to adults, so I can comfortably say what is authentic and correct. One further note... If you are a fan of Linken Park... I believe they are going to have the movies headlining theme song... which sounds amazing. No better band than them to get you pumped up for a Summer flick! Below is a trailer of The Karate Kid coming out June 11th, 2010.
