Jaden Smith's 'The Karate Kid' Releases New Full Trailer
Columbia Pictures has debuted a new trailer for "The Karate Kid". Coming out via Yahoo! Movies, the snippet shares fresh footage at the beginning and in the middle of the video, including the part when Jackie Chan introduces Jaden Smith to kung fu. Additionally, the trailer gives a glimpse of the scenes which highlight Smith and a Chinese girl's relationship.
In the film, Smith plays 12-year-old Dre, whose life is turned upside down after he moves from Detroit to China. Being the most popular kid in his homeland, he is now bullied by Cheng due to his feelings to his classmate Mei Ying.
With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han, played by Chan, who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre realizes that facing down the bullies will be the fight of his life.
In addition to the two lead actors, "The Karate Kid" taps Taraji P. Henson to play Dre Parker's mother. This remake of 1984 film of the same title is directed by Harald Zwart and is set to be unleashed in U.S. theaters on June 11.
