Starring: Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan

Twelve-year-old Dre Parker is one of the most popular kids in his Chicago neighbourhood. But when his mum gets a job in China, Dre is uprooted from everything he knows and moved to a place he’s never been before. Struggling with his new life and the stark cultural differences, Dre finds solace in the friendship of a young girl named Mei Ying. But when the school bully Cheng takes notice, Dre becomes the target of the kung fu fighting kid. With only a little knowledge of karate, Dre turns to the school janitor Mr. Han, a secret kung fu master to help him fight his new enemy. A twist on the classic 80s flick, this remake is just as entertaining as the original, with the help of Will Smith’s offspring.
