The new Karate Kid trailer has arrived. My favorite part is when Jackie Chan tells Will Smiff’s son, “I will teach you real Kung Fu.”  And the next three shots are:

A guy doing the splits on a railing with a giant fan:

A guy levitating Indian-style in the rain:

And, naturally, a chick charming a cobra:

Our conception of martial arts has come so far in 25 years.

“But master, how do I defend a roundhouse kick?”

“Very simple, my son.  Cast off Earthly possession, then go to live in jungle with tiger until mind is clear.”
