Let me be the first to say… I am a big fan of the original Karate Kid starring Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita. I even know most of the words. I am, however, quite skeptical about this new re-imagining of this movie with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan. Anyways, Geek Padre saw an early screening of the film and says: “This is the first film I have seen that is truly a reimagining of the original. And it is so worth your time.” The Karate Kid will be in theaters June 11th. Read Geek Padre’s review via aintitcoolnews.

Iron Man 2 will be released in theaters this week on May 7th… In anticipation, I am including a 1 minute film clip from the new movie. Spoiler Alert: If you don’t want to see a longer clip of the briefcase scene from the trailer, don’t push play.
New trailer for the “Last Airbender” movie… aka Avatar: The Last Airbender. This has no relation to the James Cameron movie – it is based on the Nick TV show and is directed by M. Knight Shyamalan. This movie is looking pretty cool so far.
