The Karate Kid beat The A-Team at the weekend box office


The Karate Kid came out on top in a fight this weekend, but even he might be surprised at how easily he won the battle of ’80s icons at the box office.

The remake of the popular 1984 film made $56 million at the box office, according to studio estimates. That doubled expectations, besting The A-Team ($26 million) and kicking Shrek ($15.8) to third place.
