    'The Last Song', good opening day

    Disney's Miley Cyrus starrer "The Last Song" hit all the right notes in its first day of domestic release on Wednesday in fetching an estimated $5.1 million to top the daily boxoffice rankings.

    With a base of support among the topliner's tween female fans, "Song" always figured to be front-loaded in its five-day opening run. But its first-day tally was a bit better than anticipated, suggesting cumulative boxoffice of $20 million or more through Sunday.

    "The whole idea of opening on a Wednesday was to try to set ourselves apart from the competition," Disney distribution boss Chuck Viane said. "There are a lot of big pictures out there, and the only way to get noticed is to get out there and strut your stuff."

    The midweek bow also gave "Song" a jump on the Easter frame. Many students will enjoy a stretched weekend, and that should pump up grosses through Friday.

    #4 'The Last Song'

    Warbling to the tune of an estimated $16.2 million over the weekend on close to 3,300 screens at 2,673 sites, The Last Song's audience also was over 80 percent females, according to distributor Walt Disney Pictures, albeit much younger ones than Why Did I Get Married Too?'s.

    The romantic/family drama starring Miley Cyrus has grossed $25.6 million since its Wednesday start, which was quite solid for the genre, despite being much less than Cyrus' Hannah Montana The Movie's $39.6 million five-day beginning last April as well as the last Nicholas Sparks adaptation, Dear John.

    "We were there for young women [on this competitive weekend]," said Chuck Viane, head of distribution for Walt Disney. "Miley stepped outside the comfort zone of Hannah Montana, and showed her strength bringing that many fans with her."
