Miley Cyrus‘ Hannah Montana: The Movie opened with $34 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. Following Miley’s first-place premiere last year with her 3-D concert film.
Hannah 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. Those that enjoyed the show on TV and maybe have become young teens themselves came back for the movie.’
