WILL NEIGHBORS STAMP OUT SPIDEY?

Executives at Sony had figured publicly that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would have at least one week without major competition before having to go head-to-head against the monster budgeted Godzilla on May 16. But several analysts are now predicting that it is likely that Universal’s Seth Rogen/Zac Efron comedy Neighbors will zap the superhero movie this weekend. Each film, they say, will take in between $37 and $42 million, with Neighbors likely to end up at the high end of that estimate and Spidey at the low end. No other film is expected to hit even $10 million, but it’s Mothers Day weekend, and the female-targeted The Other Woman will no doubt land in third place with around $8 million and the family-oriented/church-approved Mom’s Night Out in fourth place with around $5-7 million.
