Not only forcing 'Shrek Forever After' to hand out its crown, but also the drama action film successfully beats out 'The A-Team' from taking the coveted spot.
"The Karate Kid" has made a strong debut at North American Box Office. The remake of the 1984 film with the same title which has just been released on Friday, June 11 lands on the top spot of the chart with an approximately $56 million cume.
Another newcomer "The A-Team", which is supported with more notable cast such as Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper, only collects an estimated $26 million on its first weekend. Thus, the action comedy movie sits behind the Jaden Smith-starring flick on the chart.
Meanwhile, "Shrek Forever After" which had ruled the Box Office for three straight weeks stumbles to the third place this weekend. The 3-D animation from DreamWorks adds an estimated $15.8 million to its domestic gross.
Also losing two places from last week's positions are "Get Him to the Greek" and "Killers". The comedy which sees collaboration of two funnymen Russell Brand and Jonah Hill is on the fourth with an estimated $10.1 million revenue, while the romantic comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl rounds up the top five with an approximately $8.2 million.
