Karate Kid Kicks Up Haul

Jaden Smith, son of action star Will Smith, followed in his father's footsteps this weekend, as his Karate Kid reboot landed at the top of the box-office charts. The martial-arts flick, also starring Jackie Chan, brought in an estimated $56 million, dominating fellow remake The A-Team and increasing on last year's box-office numbers by 11 percent. It's now on track to be one of the biggest hits of the summer. In second place, The A-Team earned $26 million, lower than expected, while Shrek Forever After hung on to third place with $15.8 million. Further down the list, Robert Downey, Jr.'s early hit Iron Man 2 is closing in on the $300 million mark.
