There are different ways to make it as a child actor, but none, apparently, as effective as having Will Smith as your dad. His adorable son Jaden headlines the remake of "Karate Kid," the '80s B-movie classic that's been given an eye-popping upgrade on its way to serving as a star vehicle for little Jaden, who had three months of training from kung-fu master Wu Gang in advance of the epic four-month shoot. In place of Pat Morita is Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan, and in place of forgettable SoCal locations is .

"If at first you do succeed, make it again," is time-honored Hollywood wisdom. Which is one reason many of this summer's releases have that time-after-time familiarity. Another reason is that for many moviegoers, familiarity breeds content. Parents who enjoyed The Karate Kid with Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita when they were kids can take their own spawn this summer to the Karate Kid remake, relocated to China, with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan. Reboots enable filmmakers to reimagine alternative universes.

Finally. An airtight excuse for truancy. "There's no school today because of the aliens," 10-year-old Jacob (Jaden Smith) deadpans to his concerned stepmom, Helen (Jennifer Connelly), a Princeton astrobiologist whose expertise is needed but pronto. Emerging from the colossal fireball that has descended upon Central Park's Great Lawn are Gort, a one-eyed steel giant, and Klaatu, an adult humanoid encased in what appears to be whale blubber. First, the Earth trembles. Then, it holds its breath as Klaatu (Keanu Reeves, resembling a cross between young Al Gore and middle-aged Dorian Gray)

How does a youth who stands out like a raisin on rice assimilate into an unwelcoming host culture? That's the hook of The Karate Kid , an appealing reboot of the 1984 inspirational that rethinks the American tale for the global age. Its star, Jaden Smith, spawn of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett, is clearly a winner in the genetic sweepstakes. He's inherited Daddy's charm and Dumbo ears and Mom's looks and terrier tenacity. These attributes serve him nicely in the movie about the new kid who faces down bullies with the help of a martial-arts master.

Condensed from Daily News movie critic Gary Thompson's reviews, unless noted otherwise. AFTER EARTH M. Night Shyamalan directs Will and Jaden Smith in a sci-fi adventure about a father and son trying to survive an inhospitable Earth. The flora and fauna are enjoyably diverse, but the charismatic elder Smith is straightjacketed in a stern-dad role. (PG-13) B- NOW YOU SEE ME Dueling magicians match wits in a so-so riff on "The Prestige," helped by a cast that includes Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg.The magic acts have an energetic, Stick It To The Man theme.

EVERY SCHMOOZER in Hollywood says to every other schmoozer that they should work together someday, and almost nobody means it. But a long-term, respectful industry friendship between Philadelphia natives M. Night Shyamalan and Will Smith did amount to something - their new sci-fi spectacle "After Earth," also starring Smith's son Jaden. "We just kind of knew each other lightly over the years. Will's been gracious, keeping in touch. We've met over the last four or five years in LA, we'll get a meal and talk about stuff, and he's always been super receptive to those kinds of meetings," said Shyamalan.

Billy Joel went through a dark period after the Sept. 11 attacks, often turning to booze to help him cope with life. "I was kind of in a mental fog. . . . My mind wasn't right. I wasn't focused. I went into a deep, deep depression," Joel, 64, tells the New York Times. "[It] just knocked the wind out of me, and I don't know even now if I've recovered from it. " Joel, who says he "used booze as medication," went further into depression when his marriage to Katie Lee ended in '09. "When I really got heavy into it, it was vodka.

T OMMY CHONG made a fortune as a stoner comic, but he doesn't think marijuana is a laughing matter anymore. These days, he sees pot as the antidote for what ails America. Chong, 74, thinks that legalizing and taxing weed on a federal level would offer numerous benefits. "Look at the situation we're in now," Chong said. "Sequesters. Cuts.
