“The Karate Kid” has won a 1980s showdown at the box office against “The A-Team.”

The remake of 1984’s “Karate Kid” debuted at No. 1 for the weekend with a whopping $56 million.

“The Karate Kid” beat down the competition this weekend at the box office to the tune of $56 million dollars.

The “Kid” easily bested the another remake, “The A-Team” which took in around $26 million for second place.

“Shrek Forever After” slipped to No. 3 with $15.8 million. It had been number one for 2 weekends in a row. Its domestic haul is now $210.1 million, becoming the fourth movie released this year to top $200 million.

The big opening for “The Karate Kid” gave Hollywood a boost after a weak start to the summer season. “Iron Man 2” opened big the first weekend in May, but the box office has lagged since then, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
