Hannah Montana Outruns Fast & Furious At Box Office
Like it or not, Miley Cyrus has star power.
The tween queen led Hannah Montana: The Movie to the top of the box office this weekend, earning an estimated $34 million and outrunning last week's champ, Fast & Furious, according to Variety. Hannah marks the second-best Easter weekend opening of all time.
Cyrus' flick set a few more records: It's the biggest April opening Disney has ever had, and the movie's Friday gross — $17.3 million — is the best opening day of any live-action, G-rated film in history.
Fast & Furious wasn't a big loser, though. It added $28.2 million to its overall gross ($118 million) and won the international box office. More impressively, the film earned more than $200 million worldwide in just 10 days.
Seth Rogen-starrer Observe and Report took the No. 4 spot behind Monsters & Aliens, which raked in another $22 million in its third week. Performing below expectations, Rogen's mall cop comedy brought in $11.1 million.
Rounding out the Top 10 where Knowing (6.7 million), I Love You, Man ($6.4 million), The Haunting in Connecticut ($5.7 million), other newcomer Dragonball: Evolution ($4.7 million), Adventureland ($3.4 million), and Duplicity ($3 million).
