Friday Box Office - THE KARATE KID Kicks Up $18.8 Million; THE A-TEAM Settles for Second

After two weeks of disappointing returns, it looks like the summer box office season will get some of its mojo back this weekend, thanks mainly to a surprisingly robust performance by The Karate Kid. Sony's reboot of the 1984 classic took in an estimated $18.8 million on Friday from its 3,663 locations - nearly double the studio's most optimistic estimates. That means that, with a nice Saturday bump, the solidly-PG flick is looking at a weekend total as high as $55 million. The forecast is not quite as sunny for the week's other revamped release The A-Team. The TV retread rolled out on Friday, picking up an estimated $9.5 million from 3,535 theatres. With a three day estimate of only $28 million projected, Fox may want to start looking into their Plan B right about now. Oh right. There is no Plan B. Full weekend details when you check back tomorrow.
