When Cobra Kai—the You Tube Premium series that continues The Karate Kid story—premiered last May, one might’ve anticipated a cheesy, nostalgic gimmick. But to critics’ and fans’ great delight, the 10-episode first season was a nuanced, wonderful surprise. The half-hour series did what many in the current revival craze could not: It created a story that honored its past while forging a totally new direction. Read More here

Here’s a real kick in the head: It’s been 35 years since Columbia Studios released The Karate Kid. Fathom Events is marking the anniversary by bringing the 1984 classic back to the big screen Sunday and this Tuesday at more than 600 theaters nationwide. The special screenings are more than memory-lane matinees, they will be accompanied by a Season 2 preview of Cobra Kai, the acclaimed YouTube hit series (50 million views) that rekindles the Reagan Era rivalry between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and pulls a second generation into the All Valley Championships grudge match.

It is hard to believe it has been 35 years since The Karate Kid first hit movie theaters, but that’s the truth. To celebrate the milestone, the classic 80s movie is returning to the big screen for a limited engagement – and it is going to look better than ever. The Karate Kid, fully restored in 4K from the original camera negative, will play in select theaters nationwide on Sunday, March 31, 2019, and Tuesday, April 2, 2019, and will include an exclusive introduction from stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka. You can buy tickets and find out where it will be playing on the Fathom Events website. Read More here

Season 2 of Cobra Kai — YouTube Premium’s hit continuation of The Karate Kid franchise — will seek to answer one very important question: Is the Valley big enough for two rival karate dojos? After watching Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and his “no mercy” Cobra Kai school take the All Valley championship, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) will make good on his promise to open a kinder, gentler dojo — Miyagi-do — but it’s going to be a lot harder than selling cars. “As we saw in season one with Johnny, it’s not always easy to fill your dojo with students and make an immediate success of it in the valley,” says executive producer Josh Heald. “And with those growing pains comes more rivalry.” EW got more details about season 2 — premiering this spring — from Heald and his fellow executive producers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg.
