New Photos Combine Karate with the Kid!

by at . Comments

I'm sure you've heard by now. Hollywood has decided to remake The Karate Kid. Yes, that one. The classic one.

They've replaced Ralph Macchio with Will Smith's son, Jaden Smith (The Pursuit of Happyness) and Pat Morita with Jackie Chan (The Forbidden Kingdom). Now, I may be wrong, but as far as I remember, the original Karate Kid featured a wise Japanese mentor named Mr. Miyagi. The remake features a wise Chinese mentor named Mr. Han. I guess Hollywood doesn't know the difference.

But anyway, the film is about a single mother who's forced to move to China with her young son due to work. In his new home, the boy embraces kung fu, taught to him by a master.

The film comes out in theaters on June 11th.
