'Neighbors' unseats Spidey at box office

Monday, May 12, 2014 - Updated: 5:26 AM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Seth Rogen and Zac Efron have bested the web-slinger at the box office. Rogen and Efron's family-versus-fraternity comedy "Neighbors," was the top draw for moviegoers this weekend, unseating last week's champ, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." The R-rated "Neighbors" debuted with $51 million in ticket sales, pushing Spidey to second place with $37 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

"Neighbors" stars Rogen and Rose Byrne as new parents finding their footing in the suburbs when a fraternity led by Efron moves in next door. Filled with goofball and gross-out gags balanced with a dash of heart, the comedy boasts some epic party scenes and ample shirtless Efron.

Estimated ticket sales Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak.

1. "Neighbors," $51 million.

2. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," $37.2 million.

3. "The Other Woman," $9.25 million.

4. "Heaven Is for Real," $7 million.

5. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," $5.6 million.

6. "Rio 2," $5.1 million.

7. "Moms' Night Out," $4.2 million.

8. "Legends of Oz," $3.7 million.

9. "Divergent," $1.7 million.

10. "Brick Mansions," 1.3 million.
