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.

Too bad all the studios wanna do is "reimage" stuff that's been done before like "The Karate Kid" and "The A Team." Wish Hollywood had more creative types at the top of the food chain.

Got a free movie ticket. Think I'll use it to see "Killers," as I'm a HUGE Katherine Heigl fan -- gotta get me one of those...

@e.c. henry

as long as they make money from these movies, they won't stop. and it isn't like you have to watch them. there are enough other original movies to watch.
