Congrats to Miley & Co., who steam-rolled through the box office with $34 million in ticket sales and a #1 debut with the Hannah Montana movie.
“Hannah Montana” drew $17.3 million on Friday for the biggest opening day ever for a G-rated live-action movie.
While girls 12 and younger and their moms made up most of the audience, “Hannah Montana” also attracted a solid crowd of teenage girls, fans reaching the age when they might be outgrowing the show, said Mark Zoradi, president of Disney’s motion-picture group.
“Miley’s audience stayed with her,” Zoradi said. “Those that enjoyed the show on TV and maybe have become young teens themselves came back for the movie.”
Meanwhile, Seth Rogen’s dark comedy, Observe and Report, opening a disappointing #4 with $11M in ticket sales, and Fast & Furious fell to the #2 spot, confirming once again that teenage girls are way more powerful than teenage boys.
Also, this clip is inexplicably one of the most popular on YouTube right now:
Really, how many teenagers do we need belting out power ballads? Who is this girl?
