He may get his acting chops from Oscar-nominated superstar, Will Smith, but son Jaden Smith is learning his martial arts movie chops from a kung fu master -- Jackie Chan.

(Yes, leave it to Tinsel Town to love a title so much that they conveniently ignore the fact that the film features the Chinese martial art of "kung fu", not the Japanese "karate")

Eleven-year-old Jaden plays the title role in the upcoming reboot of "The Karate Kid", the 1980's classic coming-of-kick-age flick starring Ralph Macchio.  To prepare for his role, Jaden trained for several tough months under a Kung Fu instructor, providing tremendous realism to his onscreen battle sequences.

Watch the just released trailer as see if you think Jaden has what it takes to follow, or even surpass, his daddy's big Hollywood footsteps.

    My 12 year old daugther is a 2nd degree black belt and state champion in Tae Kwon Do. If you work your butt off and train for years you can do the moves. However, if you have a Master teaching you. Anything is possible. Jaden looks good. We've competed on the World level and you can't fake what you are watching in that movie clip! I have three Black Belts in my house!!!!

    I think it looks alright, at the very least it'll be better than the terrible films that have been released these past few years.
