There comes a time in every man’s life when they need to give up the pursuit of hitting other guys in the face with paintcans. Sadly for cinema, it is now that time for Jackie Chan. He’s announced that with his newest film, Chinese Zodiac, he will retire from big action films. Unless we’re talking about Rush Hour or Karate Kid sequels. Dude’s gotta eat, y’know?

“I don’t just want to be an action star, I want to be a true actor. So for the last 10 years I’ve done other films like The Karate Kid, where I’d rather play an old man.”

“I will ask my body how long I can go. I’m not young anymore,” he said, but added: “In the future I’ll still do Karate Kid 2, Rush Hour 4.” (BBC)

And Expendables 3. And the Las Vegas-set Shanghai Rollers. But then that’s it. Acting only after those.

‘Kung Fu Panda’ Writers Sign On for ‘Karate Kid 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kung-fu-panda-writers-sign-on-for-karate-kid-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/kung-fu-panda-writers-sign-on-for-karate-kid-2/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Too easy. Did you like the Karate Kid remake? Did you like Kung Fu Panda? Then you're going to love the Karate Kid sequel. Why? Because you're obviously ten-years old and you'll like anything they put in front of you. I'll tell you who "they" are when you're older. But you'll also like the Karate Kid sequel because the screenwriters for Kung Fu Panda, Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff, have been hired to write the script. Of course, by the time the film comes out in 2013, you'll have already hit puberty, which means maybe you'll have grown out of children's movies. But if you're anything like me, you'll retreat back to your childhood once Cindy Johnson rejects you in front of the entire biology class and makes you the laughing stock of the whole school. (Empire)

Second ‘Karate Kid’ Trailer Includes Its Own Fart Sound http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/second-karate-kid-trailer-includes-its-own-fart-sound/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/second-karate-kid-trailer-includes-its-own-fart-sound/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000  "I just go where they tell me to."The biggest problem I have with The Karate Kid remake isn't the casting or the performances but the premise. In the second trailer, we see Jaden Smith uprooted 11,000 miles away from home and forced to adjust to life on the rough and tumble streets of Beijing. I'm sorry but I refuse to believe that China is worse than Detroit. If you've ever been to Michigan, you know it looks like the aftermath of a zombie war. In China, the only real menace is subway overcrowding. All that withstanding, I can see this movie doing well. Jaden Smith's smugness is played down and Jackie Chan works as the grizzled mentor. Also, a monk threatens to bitchslap a cobra. The only thing that doesn't work for me are the "humorous" moments. I mean, c'mon. Is this a remake of The Karate Kid or Rush Hour 2? WATCH JACKIE CHAN BEAT CHILDREN AFTER THE JUMP...
