Box office report: 'Neighbors' evicts 'Spider-Man 2' from top spot

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.

Kevin Smith talks 'Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Despite its seemingly kiddie-friendly name, the new film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie is not suitable for children — unless they’re very young. “You can sit down with a child that doesn’t perceive vulgarity and that child will totally delight in it, because it’s colorful to look at,” says director and prolific podcaster Kevin Smith, who wrote the film. “But if that child understands content at all, you’re going to have a lot of explaining to do.”

Monty Python reunion to be simulcast in nearly 2,000 movie theaters worldwide

Monty Python is not dead yet.

As you may already know, the five remaining members of the beloved comedy group — John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin — are set to reunite this summer for their first performance together in 34 years. (The sixth Python, Graham Chapman, died of cancer in 1989.) The Pythons will take the stage of London’s O2 Arena on July 1-5, 15-16, and 18-20. This news was exciting but bittersweet for legions of fans, since getting a ticket to these shows is about as difficult as determining the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow; the O2 says every seat for Python’s first reunion performance was snatched up in a record 43.5 seconds.

But don’t go crying into your coconut shells! Picturehouse Entertainment revealed Thursday that it will broadcast the group’s final live performance simultaneously to 450 movie theaters in the United Kingdom — as well as 1,500 additional venues globally.

'Stage Fright' filmmakers talk Meat Loaf, Minnie Driver, and musical mayhem -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

How gory is the new slasher movie Stage Fright? This gory: During her post-shoot ADR recording session, actress Minnie Driver wouldn’t even watch her own, very early demise. “It was too gruesome for her,” says director Jerome Sable.

So why did Driver agree to appear in the film in the first place? “She had been in The Phantom of the Opera, the film version [of the Andrew Lloyd Webber Broadway show],” explains Sable. “So I appealed to her on that level.”

Oh, right. There’s something we forgot to mention about Stage Fright. In addition to being a full-on, blood-soaked horror flick, the film is also a full-fledged, song-packed, musical.

W-R-O-N-G.
