Box Office Review: Miley more popular than Jesus!
Thank you for rescuing my failed career, daughter. | Photo courtesy of Disney
Millions of Americans ignored Christ this weekend in order to fill the already overstuffed pockets of the vaguely satanic and horribly buck-toothed Miley Cyrus. Hannah Montana: The Movie picked up a cool $34M to rule the box-office roost, eclipsing last week's winner Fast and Furious ($28.7M/$118M). Monsters vs. Aliens enjoyed a strong third weekend ($22.6M/$141M) to crush disappointing newcomer Observe and Report ($11.1M). The horrible Knowing rounded out the top 5 with a richly undeserved take of $6.6M ($68M).
The very funny I Love You, Man continued to churn out some decent cash ($6.4M/$58.9M) as did the reasonably scary A Haunting in Connecticut ($5.7M/$46.2M). Dragonball: Evolution was a bit of a dud in its first weekend ($4.6M) while the wonderful Adventureland continued to slip ($3.4M/$11.4M) and Duplicity may have breathed its last breath ($2.9M/$36.8M). In limited release, the awesome Anvil!: The Story of Anvil had a strong start ($11,600 per theater) while Lymelife ($7250) was just okay. Go see Anvil!, Los Angeles!!!
