Hannah Montana flick tops, Dragonball flops

Miley Cyrus continues to hint that she's done with playing Hannah Montana, but as long as she continues to rake in the dough as the moonlighting rock star, Disney will do all it can to keep her playing the tween sensation.

Disney's Hannah Montana: The Movie opened this holiday weekend and teen girls flocked to the theaters, as the film pulled in a rock solid $34 million. That was good enough to top the weekend's box-office and hold off the surprising Fast & Furious, which finished second.

Despite the big-brand, Disney had moderate expectations for the Hannah Montana film, but it outperformed expectations and went in the record books as Easter's second best opening (Scary Movie 4 opened to $40.2 million in 2006).

On the flipside of things, the new Dragonball movie did not do so well. Dragonball Evolution, a live-action version of the mega-popular anime series, managed only $4.6 million over the weekend.

    (My own opinions)Surprised she can even talk with such a mouth full of teeth and gums like that, guess it's very v e r y easy to please the good old common folk.
    Success does not equate to quality. Praise God, NOT!

    Let’s talk about a REAL movie that is in danger of flopping; Wolverine. I think we've all seen the workprint and, even in its unfinished state, agree that its a good movie. But how many people will pay to see it now that they have essentially seen it?

    Didn't Dragonball Z reach it's peak in the 90/early 2000s along with Pokemon? I'm not surprised here. But still, it didn't seem like they promoted it at all.

    when I saw the trailer of DBZ...I knew it was a bad idea. Not a surprise at all that it did bad in the box office

    Glad for Miley. She's been under a not so kind microscope by paparazzi, fickle media, and detractors for the wrongs and rights in her life. Hopefully, we can all just progress versus regress with this little bit of success, . . especially since no one's forced to go or follow this person or the next.

    I take offense that this writer said teen girls. I'm a 23 year old guy and went with a bunch of my Fraternity Brothers (no, it's not a gay frat)and we enjoyed it. Hannah Montana has a bit of that old fashioned comedic value that's funny because it's funny, not because it's gross.
