The Amazing Spider-Man 2 cast its web over theaters to top the domestic weekend box office, according to industry figures reported by Box Office Mojo on Monday.

In its opening weekend, the superhero sequel starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx grossed $91.6 million in ticket sales from Friday to Sunday. That figure easily tops the $62 million opening weekend of its 2012 predecessor, but not the 2002 original starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, which opened with $114.8 million.

Last weekend’s top movie, female revenge comedy ‘The Other Woman’ starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, earned $14.4 million in its second weekend for a total of $47.5 million since opening April 25.

Christian drama ‘Heaven is for Real’ held steady at No. 3 in its third weekend, earning $8.6 million for a total of $65.5 million since opening April 16.

Superhero sequel ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ fell two spots to No. 4 in its fifth weekend, earning $7.77 million for a total of $237.1 million since opening April 4.

Animated comedy adventure sequel ‘Rio 2’ dipped one spot to No. 5 in its fourth weekend, earning $7.71 million for a total of $106.5 million since opening April 11.
