Wow – I am pretty happy about being wrong this week. The Zac Efron / Seth Rogen flick Neighbors scored $51 million for the top spot at the box office. Just call them king of the comedy keggers!
Spider Man fell to number two, dropping 59% in ticket sales with $37 million.
The women from The Other Woman hung out at number three with $9.2 million.
Heaven is for Real is a real hit, floating at number four with $7 million.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier dropped to number five with $5.6 million added to its massive $245 million domestic total.
Folks still flocked to see Rio 2, which came in at number six and added another $5 million to its nest egg.
The barely advertised comedy Mom’s Night Out debuted at number seven with $4.2 million. Perhaps Patricia Heaton should have stayed at home instead.
The animated indie Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return didn’t fare much better, opening at number eight with $3.7 million.
Divergent clung to life at number nine with $1.7 million. Has Katniss finally met her match?
Rounding out the top ten was the posthumous Paul Walker action flick Brick Mansions with $1.4 million.
