SUNDAY UPDATE: Neighbors is No. 1 movie at the weekend box office with an estimated $51.1 million.

ORIGINAL POST: As kryptonite is to Superman, so a kegger is to Spider-Man. That seems to be the lesson of this weekend’s box office, anyway.

Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s new frat comedy Neighbors drank in an estimated $19.6 million at the box office on Friday, almost twice as much as the $10.1m which was caught in the web of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Sony is projecting its superhero sequel will gross $37 million for the weekend, which would give it a cumulative domestic take of $147m by the end of Sunday.

Meanwhile, The Other Woman continued to show legs in its third week of release, earning $2.8 million for a total gross of $55.2 million.

Here’s the Top 5:

1. Neighbors – $19.6 million

2. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – $10.1 million

3. The Other Woman – $2.8 million

4. Heaven Is For Real – $1.6 million

5. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – $1.4 million

As for the weekend’s other newcomers, Moms’ Night Out convinced enough cinema-goers to head out to theaters for the comedy to gross $1.25 million. Finally, the Lea Michele-starring animated feature Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return raked in an estimated $980,000.
