Weekend Box Office #189
So... I'm still a bit underwhelmed.
THE KARATE KID (3663 theaters). This is a remake that feels completely unnecessary, while Jaden Smith lacks the wimp-who-needs-help aura that Ralph Macchio had. Still, reviews are solid and it'll hit that family crowd. Call it $29.7 million for the weekend.
THE A TEAM (3535 theaters). The reviews aren't as solid, but things blow up. $38.9 million for the weekend.
Last weekend, GET HIM TO THE GREEK did $17.6 million, KILLERS did $15.8 million, MARMADUKE stumbled in with $11.6 million, and SPLICE only did $7.4 million.
