Miley's Movie Pulls Off Some Box Office Bests
Are you ready for some football 'tween pop? Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour delivered the biggest payday of any film (Titanic included!) playing over Super Bowl weekend, grossing $29 million on just 683 screens. As a result, Disney is extending the film's one-week run. (Sorry, moms and dads. Hey, maybe Penny's folks can drive next weekend...?)Hannah Montana also claimed the highest opening for a film playing on fewer than 1,000 screens, trumping the $26.4 mil collected by Borat.Playing also-ran to Hannah Montana was Jessica Alba's The Eye, which opened with $13 million. Rounding out the weekend's top five were 27 Dresses ($8.4 mil), Juno ($7.4 mil) and last week's champ Meet the Spartans ($7.1 mil).Among other new releases, Eva Longoria Parker's Over Her Dead Body was practically DOA, coming in at No. 11 with a scant $4.6 mil.What's your take on Best of Both Worlds, those who hunted down a ticket?
