New 'Karate Kid' Trailer Spends a Lot of Time Talking About Kung Fu

February 24, 2010


You may find this surprising, but believe it or not, I'm not a martial artist. Outside of knowing which moves various Street Fighter 2 characters use (Zangief is good at spinning his arms around, I recall), I really can't discern between one fighting discipline and another. But when someone calls a movie "The Karate Kid" and then makes the trailer mostly about how awesome Kung Fu is, I can't help but feel like I'm being chumped:

I remember Jurassic Park receiving some criticism for depicting dinosaurs from outside the Jurassic Era, but at least they didn't make a point of bragging that they were completely disregarding the title concept.
