Miley Cyrus and alter-ego Hannah Montana have double-teamed their way to yet another No. 1 box office debut despite only being plugged on ABC's Good Morning all week before with Miley and her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, doing some numbers.
"Hannah Montana: The Movie" opened with $34 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday.
That followed Cyrus' first-place premiere only last year with her 3-D concert film.
The movie is a big-screen installment of the series about an ordinary teen living a double life as pop star Hannah, a role in which the talented young lady seemed a natural.
"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 a spokesman.
"Then there's the usual bunch of dirty old men in the back row, half of whom get ran out before the movie is over."
"Meanwhile Miley's audience stayed with her," the spokesman said. "Those that enjoyed the show on TV and maybe have become young teens themselves came back for the movie. If they keep this up she'll have a loyal following for much of her career, except those old guys in the back who'll be losing interest soon."
