Hannah Montana Takes Box Office Tiara

12 Apr, 2009 By: Thomas K. Arnold

Teen fever came through once again, pushing Hannah Montana The Movie to the top spot on the box office charts for the weekend. The film, from Buena Vista, opened at a respectable $34 million on 3,118 screens, according to our friends at Box Office Mojo. Fast and Furious, meanwhile, held on after a record $71 million opening the previous weekend, lapping up $28.8 million this weekend on 3,472 screens. That's a drop off of less than 60%, not bad for a big theatrical actioner. Monster Vs. Aliens in its third week of wide release earned another $22.6 million on 4,136 screens to bring its total box office take so far to $141 million.
