Jackie Chan may not have many stunts left in his creaking, battered bones but maybe, given the chance, he might actually give a good performance? I’m as skeptical about his Karate Kid remake with Jaden Smith as the next guy, but the movie’s new trailer does one thing really well: It makes Jackie Chan look really good. There’s a spot in the trailer when he tells Jaden that “everything is Kung Fu”. He says it with such conviction and emotion that you believe in it, in a way you probably haven’t believed in anything Jackie Chan has done in at least ten years.

Watch the new trailer for The Karate Kid below or in HD on Yahoo. Is Jackie Chan ready for an Oscar? Probably not. But getting back to doing something he’s passionate about, instead of churning out CGI babysitting movies, would at least be a step in the right direction.
