First Teaser for “The Karate Kid” TV sequel “Cobra Kai” Arrives

Here is what we know about the upcoming YouTube TV series, “Cobra Kai.” They are bringing back the older version of the karate combatants, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, some 30 years later to continue their feud. The cast will include Courtney Henggeler as Macchio’s (Daniel) wife and Vanessa Rubio as Zabka’s (Lawrence) girlfriend. The writers will be Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg who will also direct the initial series. The trailer lasted less than 50 seconds, so there isn’t much just yet as to the storyline other than the feud/rivalry will continue long after Mr. Miyagi has passed away.

Examining the many movie songs of Bryan Adams

Paul Childs Feb 12, 2018

After Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves - and that song! - hit big, the song work of Bryan Adams was in high demand at the movies...

Last month, this site ran an article about the power of feel good pop music to lighten our mood. As soon as I read it I rushed home and put on some Bryan Adams. This wasn’t just a sudden whim. I’ve been a huge fan of his ever since 'that bloke who sings about the best days of his life' released 'that song from that film'.

Youtube's Karate Kid Series Cobra Kai Will Be Faithful To The Original Movie

A YouTube Executive revealed new details about the YouTube Red original series Cobra Kai, which is based on the 1980s classic The Karate Kid at Television Critics Association.

YouTube Global Head of Original Content Susanne Daniels told /Film that Ralph Macchio and William Zabka will reprise their rival roles as Daniel Larusso and Johnny Lawrence from the original movie. The series comes from Harold and Kumar franchise creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and Hot Tub Time Machine writer Josh Heald, but Daniels insists that Cobra Kai is not a straight comedy.

“It is a half an hour format but I would call it a dramedy. I think it leans into the tone of the movies in that there are dramatic moments throughout. I think it’s very faithful really in some ways to what the movie set about doing, the lessons imparted in the movie if you will. It’s next generation Karate Kid.
