trailer break: ‘The Karate Kid’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

I’m not sure yet whether it’s a good thing that this movie about Asian martial arts is actually set in China, unlike the 1984 original, or if there’s something obnoxious in the cute little American kid kicking kung-fu ass better than the mean little Chinese kids.

Still, Jaden Smith is adorable, isn’t he? And I always like Jackie Chan, even in the worst movies imaginable.

Maybe Ralph Macchio is Jaden’s father, and he and his mom are running away from a bad divorce, but those karate genes cannot keep themselves unexpressed…

The Karate Kid opens in the U.S. and Canada on June 11, and in the U.K. on July 16.
