Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana Are #1

By: Celebuzz / April 13, 2009

Miley Cyrus truly proved that she has star power this weekend with the release of Hannah Montana: The Movie.

The G-rated film, in which pop star Hannah Montana goes back to her roots in Tennessee, took the #1 spot at this weekend’s Easter box office, raking in $34 million—double the expected opening! Cyrus’ last big-screen venture, Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best Of Both Worlds Concert, earned $31.1 million total.

This was the second biggest Easter box-office opening ever, coming in only behind the $40.2 million debut of the 2006 comedy Scary Movie. However, the Hannah Montana movie was the #1 biggest Easter weekend family film of all time!

Miley took to her Twitter over the weekend to thank her fans. “Omgomg! my fans rock! the movie is doing great you guys! omg AND its all cause of you!!!! I LOVE U ALL! IF YOU HAVENT SEEN IT YET CHECK IT!”

Congrats Miley!
