Karate Kid trailer

12.22.2009

This is the story of a boy and his older man friend who teaches him to kick other kids asses.

Kids are going to love this! The trailer for KARATE KID has debuted and it's a little better than I thought it would be. There's always a certain amount of corn that goes in with this type of movie, but KID may not have as many kernels.

I have a feeling the young boys will really enjoy this. They'll see it and want everything KARATE KID related. At some point they might also hit their Mom up for some karate classes. Well, that's how I felt after I watched NINJA TURTLES. Obviously the film isn't aimed toward the age demographic that this site caters to. With that knowledge, if I were an 9 year old boy, I'd be impressed.

Check it out below or in HD at Yahoo!

great another fighting movie that uses the same damn fort minor song to make their trailer sound epic and you get into theaters and its just like all the other fight movies. I like that song but theres seriously like 5 other movies that use it in their trailer.

Couldn't be worse than the Karate Kid sequels. Especially the last two. Trailer doesn't look half bad actually.

Wow everybody is so cool talking trash about the Karate Kid remake, you're so smart and cynical.

I for one say this looks pretty damn good. If there is anything that I didn't like about the trailer it's merely the use of the Fort Minor track which was also prominently used in the trailer for Fighting.
Chan finally looks cool again, Henson is always great and Smith soon might be able to fill his dad's shoes.

As for all those know-it-alls go get a soy latte, watch Citizen Kane again and

More CRAP!

This is so sad in so many ways. Destroying little parts of my childhood 1 movie/remake at a time, THANKS HOLLY (WE AREN'T EVEN TRYING ANY MORE) WOOD. I'm sure all the kids will flock to this, then they will have see 2 or 3 sequels like we did as kids, then they will have to watch get remade again in another 25 years! BOOO!!!!

Why couldn't they call this. The Alternate Karate Kid: Black Attack

Great. Not only can't I beat Will Smith's ass. Now I can't beat his son's either. He probably wouldn't even crane kick me. Little fucker.

Surprisingly though. This seems kinda promising. I'll save this for drunk Jackie Chan night at my house. I'll just sub in this for Rush Hour 3. Pretty much a waste of time anyway.

Hmmm....

This looks pretty interesting.

I noticed Rongguang Yu, who shows up a lot in Hong Kong flicks is in this film...

I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes together...(And I'm still wondering why it will be called 'The Karate Kid' if they are in Beijing...

Put this kid, and this movie, in a bodybag Johnny!

I guess its considered child abuse to force a kid to paint the fence or wax the car.

ya know this is probably going to be a whole lot better than it has any right to be

And i think thats whats going to piss Arrogant fanboys off the most; something that has no business being anywhere near good not only being well done but more importantly satisfying. I really dont see why there's this much animosity towards this film. Yeah the original Karate kid was good but it was'nt some grand epic. This movie is probably going to wind up being more different from that movie than most people think and even if it isnt so what? i can at least guarantee that this is going to

Oh yeah and stop Bashing jayden smith Because his dad is will smith, he's only 11cut him a break. And as far as people getting on will for putting his kid in movies, thats called grooming and carrying on the family legacy.

It's like the TOKYO DRIFT version of KARATE KID, but worse. And they changed "wax on, wax off" to "put on your jacket, take off your jacket?" Doesn't have quite the same ring. I dunno, I'm sure the kids will love it (some of them), but this just looks fucking awful.

It is TOTALLY DIFFERENT from The Karate Kid. Why not just call it something else?? This has nothing to do with Daniel, Miayagi, Elizabeth Shue, body bags, Cobra Kai, and crane kicks. None of that is here.

I was totally ready to laugh and diss this, but it looks surprisingly decent. Jackie Chan isn't acting like a goofy cartoon, and Jayden seems like he can handle this. And I don't really care about the whole karate/kung-fu snafu, and I doubt most people even know the difference.

The Onslaught of Jaden

Hollywood is pushing both Jaden Smith and Sam Worthington on audiences. But I gotta tell ya, I think Jaden is a hell of a lot more interesting than Sam Worthington. At least Jaden has a cool dad.

They never should have touched this BUT... BUT I will say that I am really digging the "mentor type" vibe coming from Jackie Chan. I love that guy and seeing him not act like a goofball for a change is nice.

out of many things messed up about this project. the one that got me thinking was why they called it Karate Kid when there in china and hes being taught Kung Fu. Oh well. They shouldn't have messed with this anyways.

This is very timely considering the whole Lou Jing controversy that is going on in China right now.

Trailer was certainly better than what I was expecting. I'm sure it will do gangbusters though. It looks like a good flick for the kiddies.

not a bad trailer - if its done right and the other movie is given enough respectable nod - then ok - but shouldnt it be called the kung fu kid? i know that most would say karate came from china then spread into japan, but it would seem more appropriate since its in china not japan. huh?

Looks pretty shit on most levels, but it does seem that the martial arts coreography might be better in this remake (I would hope so too, it's seriously ropey in the original)

Looks interesting enough for a rental, but Kung-Fu Kid would have differentiated this flick from the Morita/Macchio one.

wow looks like this movie is getting a lot of hate! I don't think it looks bad at all. It's not something that I would rush out to see in the theaters, but I'm not a 9 year old boy either. I might pick it up on dvd though.

As a second note, I think it is hysterical that they will release this as a summer blockbuster in June... I wonder what will make more $$, this in its entirety or Iron Man 2 in its 5th week running...

In fact, first it was THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL and now THE KARATE KID. Does this kid make it a point to only be part of the shitty unnecessary remakes?
