The movie version of the wildly popular, and controversial, Hannah Montana tour, “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert,” wowed the box office as well as young girls across the nation, for the weekend ending Feb. 3. It took in an estimated $29 million at the box office, according to USA Today and other industry sources, and the haul was twice what many analysts projected, averaging more than $42,000 on the 683 theaters that could accommodate the digital 3-D film. The turnout prompted executives at Disney to extend indefinitely the run of the film, which was to play for a week.

Films with female leads took second , third and fourth place as well last weekend. The Jessica Alba horror film “The Eye” took second place with $13 million, while the Katherine Heigl bridesmaid comedy “27 Dresses” continued to wear well with $8.4 million. The film has done $57.1 million in three weeks. The teen pregnancy comedy “Juno” also held strongly, taking fourth place with $7.5 million and $110.3 million overall.

The spoof comedy “Meet the Spartans” was No. 5 with $7.1 million, followed by “Rambo” with $7 million.
