The Karate Kid" Chops Up Box Office Competition
Proving to be the big hit of the weekend, "The Karate Kid" winded up claiming the top slot in the box office in dominating fashion.
After pulling in $18 million on Friday, the Jaden Smith/Jackie Chan starring action film remake is estimated to have garnered $56 million in all over its opening three days in theaters.
Coming in second place was "The A-Team," which made a little bit less than anticipated with $27 million in ticket sales.
Rounding out the weekend's top grossing flicks were "Shrek Forever After" at $16 million and Russell Brand's "Get Him to the Greek" with $10 million in its second week.
