So the movie is called The Karate Kid, but it's going to be about learning Kung Fu??

Yeah, this is going to be so bad, even anticipating the lameness hurts.

But at least we can count on James Horner delivering a fantastic score.
This is the guy who wrote the amazing soundtrack for Troy is less than two weeks. No doubt he'll do great with this.
