jaden smith karate kid 'Karate Kid': First look at Jaden Smith in the remakeWill Smith has spawned an action star — his son Jaden, the new “Karate Kid.” Watch the first trailer.

The young Smith fights his way onto the big screen in 2010 as Dre Parker, the newest martial arts trainee in the latest “Karate Kid” installment.

We have to say, based on this trailer… the movie looks better than we were expecting it to look. We aren’t sure how we feel about Jaden Smith being 11 years younger than Ralph Macchio was in the first movie. It’s like they turned it into a kids’ movie.
