"The Karate Kid" Kicks Its Way to Box-Office Victory with $56 Million 


"The Karate Kid" proved to be tubular at the box-office, winning ahead of another '80s relic, "The A-Team." The remake of the 1984 film starring Jaden Smith in the Ralph Macchio role, and Jackie Chan as the Master previously played by the Oscar-nominated Pat Morita, debuted at No. 1 for the weekend with $56 million!

Right now, Smith is probably telling his proud papa Will, "who's the bigger star now dad?"

Meanwhile, "The A-Team" came in at No. 2 with $26 million. Moviegoers loved karate more than explosive male-bonding. (Check out my reviews of "The Karate Kid" and "The A-Team" right here)

After spending three weekends at No. 1, "Shrek Forever After" fell to No. 3 with $15.8 million. So far, the DreamWorks animated flick took in $210.1 million and it's now the fourth movie of the year to top $200 million. (Check out my interview with Walt Dohrn aka Rumpelstiltskin right here)
