LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Godzilla" has debuted as the second-largest opener of the year with $93.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

It's second to "Captain America: The Winter Solider," which opened with $95 million in April.

The Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' sci-fi monster reboot, starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson trumped last weekend's No. 1 hit, Universal Pictures "Neighbors," which was pushed down to No. 2 in its second weekend.

The raunchy comedy earned $26 million, bringing its domestic total to a solid $91.5 million.

Rounding out the top three is "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" with $16.8 million. So far it's earned a total of $172 million domestically.

Also opening this weekend, Disney's feel-good sports drama "Million Dollar Arm," starring Jon Hamm, gained $11 million.
