It's Monday, which means its time for On The Lot with Rebecca Keegan of the LA Times, our weekly look at the movie business.  

We start with the weekend box office. The bro comedy, "Neighbors," bested the new Spiderman with $51.1 million. Bros beat superheros now?

Keegan profiled Seth Rogen and Zach Efron, the stars of "Neighbors," for the LA Times. How did this pair come together?

The glitzy Cannes film festival begins on the French Riviera on Wednesday. It's an interesting year at Cannes with a majority female jury. How significant is that?  

There's an update to the Academy Museum that's in the works, as one of the architects is off the project. This comes after a scathing review from LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne at the Times.

Some controversy in the home viewing market: Netflix is raising its prices again but it's not bad news for everyone.

There are rumors of a Morrissey biopic in the works. Is this true?
