As I predicted last week, Fast & Furious is no longer the number one movie. There is a new number one movie at the box office. That title belongs to Hannah Montana. Hannah Montana: The Movie is the number one movie at the box office. Hannah Montana made $34 million this past weekend. The movie had an impressive one-day opening with over $17 million. It’s the most money a G-rated movie made in one day. I guess teens were more into Hannah Montana than they were in Fast & Furious. Hannah Montana is not exactly my cup of tea, but obviously a lot of people liked it enough to see it. I’ve seen the show a couple of times, but I don’t think I’ll be checking out this movie.
Last week’s number one movie Fast & Furious slipped to number two with over $28 million. Since it’s opening, it’s made $118 million. Believe it or not, I still haven’t seen this yet. The movie lost a lot of numbers this past weekend. This is the same movie that just debuted with over $70 million and now it didn’t even make $30 million. That usually happens when action movies have a big opening weekend.
Monsters vs. Aliens is still holding steady at number three with over $22 million. It hasn’t slipped that much since it’s debut. People must really like this cartoon since it’s still pulling in pretty big numbers. Number four is Observe and Report. It debuted with over $11 million. It’s a comedy about a mall cop trying to catch a flasher and get into the police academy. It sounds something like Paul Blart: Mall Cop. The only difference is that Paul Blart: Mall Cop did much better at the box office. Rounding out the top five is Knowing which made over $6 million.
My prediction for this week, is that Hannah Montana: The Movie may have a second week at number one unless something new comes out this weekend that has a lot of fanfare. I will let you know in the next movie news article if I’m right.
Here is the top 10 list
- Hannah Montana: The Movie – 34 million
- Fast & Furious – 28.8 million
- Monsters vs. Aliens – 22.6 million
