Hannah Montana – Disney’s biggest opening ever.
Not quite. Seems “Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest” beat Hannah Montana’s $34-million opening weekend by $20-million. Yet the Hannah Montana movie was #1 at the box office. My prediction is it will be again next weekend and #2 will be Zac Efron's 17 Again.
Yet Hannah Montana Movie did twice as well as Disney expected, two-and-a-half times the record set for Tween music genre, “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” in 2003.
So Miley Cyrus and the director said no more Hannah Montana movies. As James Bond said, “Never say never.” You heard it here first, look for the sequel to this movie two years from now.
Here’s a tip for the Disney folks who are unable to answer phones or emails. Make the next one a PG-13, not G. I’ve even got the name for you, Hannah Montana – 18, legal and dangerous. Make it a spy type of adventure movie.
