Amazing Spider-man already made over 500 million world wide.

# 2

So proud of Zac !!!! Number one movie this weekend.

# 3

Its not Zac Neighbors its Seths! The actor, and producer of the film. Not hating on Zac just that its annoying just singleing out one actor of the entire film. He’s not even first billing.

I’m not a Zac Efron fan, but to be honest the guy really can act.. also I don’t think the success of the movie is because of Seth Rogan, I think Zac’s helped A LOT in the movie.. more of people who are saying that the success of the movie is because of Seth has not even seen the movie yet. I swear. I think Efron stole the show. We never get to see him like that. A villain. Now I’m waiting for his upcoming movies.. I’m pretty curious about his career right now. Good job boy.

@katty: I feel you – I’m totally agree with you. I think we underestimate Efron’s work a lot – the guy really knows how to act.

# 6

I saw the movie and to be really honest I didn’t saw it because of Seth Rogen.

I saw it because of Zac Efron, I thought it was a really good movie for him and I was pretty curious and if you look at all the critics and reviews of the film most of it is based on Zac’s character “Teddy”. Most of the people loved it.

@Living in a box: Spiderman was released Worldwide but it’s not the case for Neighbors.. Neighbors was released in 3,279 cinemas while Spiderman 2 was released in 4,324. Do you see the difference? Can you imagine what would happen If Neighbors were released like that?

# 8

TASM2′s worldwide take is a given. Neighbors is quite the surpise.

It won’t make so much overseas but it has already made a tidy profit in just 3 days.

# 9

Seth rogen is ugly.

Zac Efron has still got it! Fück yeah!!!

@katty: @Nick: I agree with both of you. He knows how to act and he freaking kicked ass in this movie. From now on he should do drama or thriller. But not as a good guy, but as a villain.

went for Zac and Franco to a lesser extent.
Hot! and funny.

@Unknown: I agree with all three of you. I like him as the bad guy. I also read that the audience was 53% female. I wonder why? Lol. I’ll tell you one thing, it was harder getting into this movie than getting into a bar. So many ID checks haha.

I went for everyone but I’m not gonna lie, Efron pushed me to see it opening day. Universal studios knew exactly what they were doing with this movie.

@katty: yes, him and T

@katty: sorry, that messed up. I meant yes, him and Rose. Rose was hilarious.

@Marley: lmao yeah. Obviously seth made a good job casting zac. but to hell with those shallow girls who went to see zac shirtless. i’m a girl too, but to be honest ”abs who?”. Zac’s performance was outstanding. He fit perfectly for this role. That fight scene between Zac and Dave gave me chills.

Neighbors is really, really bad!

Neighbors……. domestic: 51 million. International: 34 mil.
Spidey……………domestic 27 million. International:69 mil. 2nd week.

Winner.. Spiderman 96 million (in the second week) By 11 million.
Loser…. Neighbors 85 million (in first week)

Adding the first week…..Spiderman is killing Neighbors with no chance of a catchup.

Also, and most importantly….Neighbors really sucked!!!!!!

jon m'shulla @ 05/11/2014 at 5:54 pm

Once word gets out how bad this movie Neighbors is, it will die a deserved a box office death.

@jon m’shulla:
LOL What an idiot. You know Spiderman is now playing everywhere in the planet, right? Neighbors has opened only in 29 foreign markets so far.

Really b Really? @ 05/11/2014 at 6:42 pm

@Katty I don’t think Zac helped that much. He was shirtless and nude in That Awkward Moment and did u see those results? Neighbors made more in a day and a half of that entire movie gross.

Good movie. But I thought the wife was the standout.

@jon m’shulla: lol dude it’s already making profit, too late for that lol. Didn’t this movie play in like every state for free before this movie came out? Why do you think it made as much as it did it first week? People actually liked it and told people to go see it.

@Really b Really?: trust me, Zac helped and so did Franco, but Neighbors had appealed to large audience. Male and female. Young and Old. It had a wide audience. Seth and Zac promoting the movie together was gold.

@jon m’shulla: look up both movies production budgets and come back to me. In all honesty, I did not think Neighbors was going to beat Spider-Man, but I was pleasantly surprise.

@Living in a box: but relatively speaking it’s not doing as well as the others. I for one won’t see it as I can’t stand tbe smug and smarmy Garfield . Long live Tobey Macguire!
