“The Karate Kid” remake coming to DVD and Blu-ray in October


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: This summer’s updated “Karate Kid,” with Jaden Smith in the Ralph Macchio role, proved that not all remakes are destined to suck. The film – which was quite good – has been one of 2010’s success stories, pulling in $173.8 million domestically to become the ninth-highest-grossing film of the year to date.

And now it is coming to home video.

Sony announced that “The Karate Kid” will arrive on DVD, Blu-ray and a Blu-ray Combo Pack (which will have 3 ways to watch the movie – on Blu-ray, DVD & digital copy) on Oct. 5.

The DVD and Blu-ray copies are filled with special features, including a behind-the-scenes featurette titled, “Just For Kicks,” Chinese lessons, as well as the music video for the film’s hit song, “Never Say Never,” in which Smith sings with Justin Bieber.
