First Look At The New Karate Kid

| Filed under: Film Flickers


You would think after Hilary Swank did a roundhouse kick in the early nineties, there would have been no need to revive this franchise.

Oh, but how Hollywood loves to bank on nostalgia!

So here's a look at the first images from the new take on the classic flick The Karate Kid.

As you can see, Will Smith's son can kick high and Jackie Chan is getting old.

We think we smell a box-office TANKER!

    This is so wrong on so many levels.

  3. 3

    it's too bad they couldn't look for new talent instead of just giving the part to an already famous celebrity's son … I bet for this reason the movie will be a flop

  4. 4

    I would never see this and i'm disgusted to see will smith's kid getting an acting role, blantant favoritism. I bet it tanks and i hope it tanks. WHY REMAKE A MOVIE THAT WAS ONLY OKAY TO BEGIN WITH? IIIIIIDDDDIIIOOOTS

  5. 5

    wtf this movie was soo gay the 1st and 2nd y do they think they need to re-make another one??

    i know i wont ever be watching it
    its gonna SUCK!

  6. 6

    Whoa….Jackie Chan looks like an OLD HAG….and Will Smith's son does NOT look like a "Karate Kid" lol

  7. 7

    You can just see the talent in him…
    Can't wait to see it…

    Super fuggly kid.

    Yep, movie's a tanker.

  10. 10

    Will Smith is just showing off, man - hire Jackie Chan as a karate trainer and rent the whole Chinese Wall as his gym. WE GET IT, YOU'RE FILTHY RICH AND YOU CAN GET YOUR SON INTO A FUCKING MOVIE BECAUSE HIS LAST NAME IS SMITH!!!

  11. 11

    So pathetic. No only are they remaking yet another movie that has no need to be remade, but once again the public is subjected to yet another example of blatant nepotism in Hollywood as if we don`t have enough of that already. Just about all the top stars today are the kids of other stars or drectors…Jolie, Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Robert Downey, Sean Penn, Matthew Brodderick on and on and on…If the rest of the world was run like Hollywood the only people who would ever be working would be those whose parents are CEO`s

  12. 12

    Your a fatty who hates on fat people …really? how much sense does that make? Sadly i have to admit i wish that someone would rob you at gun point…make you pee your pants and steal your dog..not to mention take pics of your hairy nasty small balls and post them on every blog in the world..that is all i want for Christmas!

  13. 13

    as carrie bradshaw would say "that's like putting ketchup on a steak, stop! you're ruining it!"

  14. 14

    Such a bad idea!
    I love The Karate Kid, but there are enough of them.
    Plus this kid is too young!

  15. 15

    Will Smith's kid? It's bad enough John Travolta is shoving his daughter down our throats, now Will Smith and his son too? Hollywood brats!

  16. 16

    These two clowns are ruining the beautiful scenery. Photoshop, please.

  17. mommy says – reply to this


    BARF…that kid annoys me. T A N K E R!!!

  19. 19

    oh wait, i saw this like 3 days ago! on another website.

  20. 20

    Re: Tiedyedaisy – they have never remade the Karate Kid. They did a few sequels and a new venture when Hillary Swank did it.

  21. 21

    This is actually my 3rd look. Saw it on a few other sites a few days ago. This movie looks horrible. I hate the way Will Smith is pushing his son into our lives. Wait until he is older and can do this on his own.

  22. 22

    this movie is going to be SHIT!!! you can't remake a classic like karate kid and expect it to do good, especially when in the original the master was japanese not chinese! i love jackie chan, but he ain't got nothin on mr. miyagi! sorry will smith's son! should of picked a different project to do kung fu!

  23. 23

    wtf first off this shouldnt have been remade. next it should not have will smiths kid in it cause he is terrible and talentless.

  24. 24

    Too lame for words. And while I really like Will Smith, his wife and kids appear to be a bit too big for their britches. Seem like fucking snobs.

  25. 25

    Re: Naomid

    So true. And now Travolta's ugly daughter is in a film. It's getting so fucking lame.

  26. 26

    I understand they're probably trying to ignite some sort of tween-teen following/start a new franchise with casting a young kid. But he looks like could barely clear the height requirement for the rides at Disneyland.

    Ralph Macchio looked pretty young, yes ( he was actually in his early 20's when he filmed 1st Karate Kid) ….but not so young to where he looked like he had to ask permission to stay up past 9pm.

  27. 27

    Only if by "first look" you mean, "published in People magazine a week ago." Damn you're lame.

  28. 28

    Say it ain't so! How are they gonna replace Ralph Machioe with an 8 year old kid. They are ruining the Karate Kid!

  29. LBmom says – reply to this


    This is some BULL SHIT!! Seriously Will Smiths Kid and Old ass Jackie Chan!!

  30. 30

    OOPS I thought that was a little GIRL!

  31. 31

    Great wall of China. Looks like this kid is on his way to a big pecker.

  32. 32

    The appeal of the first and most successful movie was that Ralph Macchio was adored by teens and was a teen. This won't attract a teen audience.

  33. 33

    It will suck serious ass just like the first one. What's the problem?

  34. 34

    seems and it will be a tanker.

  35. 35

    Honestly there is no need for a remake. And why Will Smith's son? He looks like hes 9 years old.

  36. 36

    Don,t watch it,its a Scentlogist kid in it,same with that new piece of crap Travolta movie with Robin Williams.Robin Williams what the hell is going on ,all your movies lately are total garbage

  37. 37

    Re: Zombie Hitler – It's so true and sad at the same time. Hollywood is still so racist.

  38. 38

    That kid is a little shit anyways. I have seen him on interviews and he is way too impressed with himself. It's beyond healthy confidence and more of a "my daddy's rich and I get what the f I want" kind of thing

  39. 39

    Re: Naomid – wow…never thought of it that way but you are so right

  40. 40

    This one should not have even been remade. I'm with Ralph Machio on this one.

  41. 41

    Re: ap076 – omg, ditto.

  42. 42

    Will Smiths son”s ego is just as big as his dads and the kid hasn't done shit. I hate that family for flaunting all their shit and pushing their ugly kids in our face. Stupid idea anyway, I wouldn't watch it regardless who was in it!

  43. Sezzy says – reply to this


    that kid looks like an asshole. all hes missing is a gold chain

  44. 44

    how original a blog full of haters. What i dont understand is why no one will give the kid a chance. The movie would be a flop either way. Its not like its the Batman franchise, this is the karate kid people… REALLY!?

  45. 45

    The kid looks like he is in 3rd grade. This should suck bad

  46. 46

    Dumb movie..
    But this kid is sooooo cute!

  47. 47

    What's even sadder than the fact that they have to remake a classic for the sheer propose of profiting is that Jaden received the part, not because of his 'talent', but rather because of his famous father Will.

  48. 48

    If they made a live-action Boondocks this kid could play Riley easily.

  49. 49

    This is so wrong on so many levels!!! Really, do they think they can replace Pat Morita and Ralph Macchio??? I think not!
    This kid was awful in The Day The Earth Stood Still and he's going to be worse in this movie.
    Let a classic stay a classic, folks!!!

  50. 50

    He is far more talented than that lousy actor of a father of his–but that is not saying much at all.

  51. 51

    Oh sweet Christ.

    What a joke. What a fucking cinematic abomination.

  52. 52

    Cute kid… pointless movie

  53. Moron says – reply to this



  54. 54

    Umm… I am a Will Smith fan, and I think his son is cool and all BUT! did they really have to remake karate kid. Couldn't they just have came up with their own movie and storyline instead of remaking another one.

  55. MP says – reply to this


    Nice to see nepotism is alive and well in Hollywood. No way will I see this movie. The original's a classic. When will they ever learn?

  56. 56

    How can you smell a tanker from a few photos? Chances are that they'll be able to make the original better, especially since it wasn't that good to begin with.

  57. 57

    Um.. I'm really not trying to be a perv or anything.. but does anyone else see something in the second picture?

  58. 58

    ur all fucking stupid. i agreee this remake is stupid and remakes of classics are dumb but will smith is one of the BEST actors in hollywood. if ur father was a legendary actor, wouldnt you want to follow in his footsteps? ur all jealous fucks if ur parents were famous actors you'd want to become famous too and become an actor. but ur all ignorant and hating cause ur lives are pathetic..

  59. 59

    I will not see this movie.

  60. 60

    I can't stand this kid..and some other commenters are right..why doesn't he look like he's getting older? He still looks 9 or 10. Anyway, he is a BIG BRAT. In every interview he's in he talks about how great he is and how he didn't need school like all the other kids..his dad only taught him what would make him a better person and knowing about the Boston Tea Party would NOT make him a better person so he doesn't care to learn things about the past unless it includes stories on African Americans.

  61. Low says – reply to this


    Casting little Will will make it a flop….

  62. 62

    This was a great movie back in the day…not sure how i feel about a remake…Will Smiths son is very cute..but thats it..i dont see a karate kid. i think they could have casted someone who is a little bit older like in the original. Either way Im sure this movie will be PG and the kiddies will love it anyway

  63. 63

    Wow - alot of jealous haters here, badmouthing a kid?? So classy.

    This movie will be targeted to kids - they will probabl love it, and lets face it - most wouldn't have ever seen the original Karate Kid. Jackie Chan is a popular guy too, lets not forget.

    Still, I am tired of all these remakes - get some originality people!

  64. 64

    Scientology kills!
    Remember Lisa McPherson

  65. RPORC says – reply to this


    Who will watch this crap? Will's son reminds me of Bow Wow 10 years ago. This boy is so annoying and if he's not Will Smith's son, who will take a second look at him? Nobody cares!

  66. 66

    I think he looks more like Jada than Will… I think the movie will be terrible, but I think he'll do a good job…just look at the talent in his family…

  67. 67

    Will Smith is probably paying Jackie Chan millions of dollars so that he would act alongside his son. Will Smith is desperate to get his son famous, him investing millions on the film is the only way to get his kid in a movie.

  68. 68

    This is sooooooo lame! i cannot even understand how ANYONE would think this movie is a good idea and that it will bring in money!!!!! also a black karate kid?! asian i can see, but this is odd, but hey when you're dad has maja ties to the movie then there you go! Needless to say i wouldn't watch this movie for free!

  69. 69

    Omg he was such a brat in The Day The Earth Stood Still. Bad script I guess. I Love the Smiths!!! They better make it better than the original. He's pretty young. So maybe they'll do a few if its good. And he better not be a brat. I can stand spoiled kids.

  70. 70

    Karate is Japanese, not Chinese… Chan has no reason to be a star on it. UGH!

  71. 71

    my interest in piqued but I'd have to at least see a trailer first to determine whether it's worth watching. I liked the first 2 KK films, the third was okay

  72. 72

    Stupid idea. Remakes ALWAYS suck! And this one is going to be lame, lame, lame. Enough with pushing regurgitated crap down our throats Hollywood. And I just hate the thought of Will being involved in Scientology. sighs. That little boy really does come off as a brat.

  73. 73

    I think this kid is real cute and the movie is going to be super successful!

  74. 74

    Re: pusspuss – basically, I think most people are just tired of the industry destroying timeless masterpieces from the 80s. Poor little Jaden in targeted because people need an outlet to express their frustration w/ remakes. That's it.

  75. 75


  76. 76

    That kid is just too cute:) Cant wait for the film:)

  77. 77

    D - o me a favour
    L - et´s think about it

    S - ome days ago
    T - ell me where
    E - hhhhh right
    D - ouchebag!

  78. 78

    this is fucking terrible,…. son.

  79. 79

    Ridiculous - Can someone please put a stop to the saccharin steamroller that is the Smith family - vomit!!

  80. 80

    Jackie Chan looks terrible.

  81. 81

    And Will Smith stinks!

  82. 82

    kid can't act and Will's poor daughter inherited his big ass ears! too fugly. Don't mess with "Daniel son", Jaden is no Daniel son!

  83. 83

    After watching millions of hard working Americans lose their jobs over the last year, the last thing I want to see is some spoiled moviestar's kid handed the opportunity to ruin an 80's classic. Everything about this looks wrong. I wouldn't go if you paid me.

    Oh, and is that his boy kid or his girl kid?

  84. 84

    no no no no no no no no

  85. 85

    the little ninja fighter from tropic thunder and g.i joe should have played the part. then I probably will see it.

  86. 86

    I see the iceberg coming …. what ever happened to the idea of searching for the "kid-actor" rather than having one shoved down our throats !

  87. 87

    That kid cannot act. He was horrible in "The Day the Earth Stood Still".

  88. 88

    wow straight to dvd it should be

    sweep the lick johnny

  89. 89

    Re: meeshelle

    OMG! You are like soooo toally a smelly cun*t.

  90. 90

    Ugly little kid and a horrible actor to boot.

  91. 91

    how many times do they have to remade the same movie over and over adain???

  92. 92

    I'm glad they're remaking it with an African American boy. For the first time MY grandson will see a boy like himself starring in a movie.

  93. 93

    I don't care what anybody says, this movie is going to kick

  94. 94

    Re: sassyfrassy – "Um.. I'm really not trying to be a perv or anything.. but does anyone else see something in the second picture? "

    HAHAHAHAHA I read ALL of these comments to see if anyone would mention that…and you were the only one. Not a perv…it's smack right in the middle of the photo. Ew.

  95. 95

    For once, I'd like to see a story where someone doesn't come on here and claim they saw the story already on another site days ago. Well, good for you!! Do you think you deserve a metal because you knew first? And why take the time to come on Perez' site and whine, bitch and call him names for being "late" on something. So what!!! If you feel he is always late on a story, don't come back on his site. Or if you've read the story before, skip over it…why comment. You're only making him more popular by creating more hits for his site. Geez people! It's ridiculous!

  96. 96

    Re: LaffyTaffy – *medal*

  97. 97

    Ala what the hell un negro para el karate kid wasnt the dude italian un stinker. booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

  98. 98

    looks retarded, i won't go see it

  99. 99

    Why does Hollywood do this shit? Can't ANYONE think of NEW movies ideas and stop fucking up the classics? This is just sad.

  100. 100
