    But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city.

    With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he.

    And as his old frenemy, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

Although the superhero film slipped into second place at the US box office, it continued to dominate theaters globally, according to Rentrak.

Grossing $106 million during the weekend ending May 11, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 remained in the top spot at the worldwide box office. Meanwhile, Neighbors starring Zac Efron and Seth Rogen turned out to be a surprise hit, taking the box office by storm. The comedy grossed $85.4 million during its opening weekend in 30 territories, taking second place worldwide.



In terms of total revenues to date, the second film in the new Spider-Man franchise now claims $550.9 million, making it the second highest-grossing film of 2014, behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($695 million) and ahead of Rio 2 ($425 million).

At the US box office, the success of Neighbors had an impact on the superhero movie's revenues, however. The frat-house comedy took in $51 million at the domestic box office, compared to $37 million for Spider-Man.

After rising into second place over the previous weekend, The Other Woman slipped back into third at the global box office. The comedy starring Cameron Diaz earned $22 million in 61 territories. Rio 2 fell into fourth place with $19 million.
