New Miley movie is a massive hit

Teen star Miley Cyrus is celebrating after her latest movie jumped to the top of the cinema chart in America.

More than $34m (£23.1m) has been spent on tickets for Hannah Montana: The Movie since it started showing on cinema screens in America on Friday.

Miley is becoming a big name in the film world, as all three of her movies so far have made millions.

Her 3D concert film made more than $30m (£20.4m) when it opened last year, and Bolt made more than $25m (£17m).

An American cinema expert said of Miley: "Her average opening weekend is asround $30m.

"That's a pretty good track record for a 16-year-old. Her opening-weekend average rivals stars twice her age."

Hannah Montana: The Movie will be in cinemas in the UK from 1 May, but if you're a big fan keep an eye out for some advance screenings just before that.
