‘Neighbours’ cruises to easy win

May 12th, 2014 - Graham Eley

Universal’s R-rated comedy, ‘Neighbours’, blew away the opposition at the North American box office with a spectacular $51m opening weekend, a good $10m above market expectations.  This was due in part to a higher than anticipated female audience, being a remarkable 53% of the whole, with Seth Rogen’s co-star, Zac Efron, proving a decisive factor.  In the end, solid reviews, currently standing at 74% on Rotten Tomatoes, had more impact than a slightly disappointing ‘B’ CinemaScore from first night audiences.

 

Sony’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’, grossed $37.2m for a 60% fall from last weekend’s debut.  It is not out of line with ‘Captain America 2’, which fell by 57% last month, but the film carries a higher budget and had a slightly inferior starting position.  The superhero sequel has performed stronger overseas, being a relief to Sony, which still has two further mega-budget instalments in the pipeline.lexapro cost assistance
