Martin Scorsese directs Andrew Garfield and Liam Neeson in Silence, first poster released.

Last weekend UK cinema goers came out in big numbers for the revamp of the Spider-Man story in The Amazing Spider-man. The film which stars Britain's Andrew Garfield had an excellent opening weekend where the web slinger take was an amazing £11,091,972 and took 4-5 times more than the rest of box office combined.

The longest running film in the top 15 is Men in Black 3 with 7 weeks on the chart.

Last weeks top film, Ice Age Continental Drift, drops to number 2 taking £719,769 over the weekend, increasing its total over 2 weeks to £2,327,078.

A year ago Transformers: Dark of The Moon was still at the top having taken a total of £19,701,418 while The Guard was the top new film with £473,878 at number 5

Five years ago Shrek The Third still topped the chart taking it's total gross to £25,694,674 as Bruce Willis had a fourth outing as John McClain in Die Hard 4_0 as the highest new entry at 2 with £5,004,916

Ten years ago it was all about Tom Cruise as he shot to the top of the UK box office in the Steven Spielberg directed Minority Report taking £4,506,315 on it's debut weekend.

All films (well I think all) must have a title, and when it comes to re-boots/remakes/reimages whatever they like to be called there is a question? Go with the originals title or make it slightly different? When that original is less than 10 years old a slightly different title is in order and so Spider-man 4 (or reboot?) is called The Amazing Spider-Man.

As the keen eyed (or geek eyes?) among you will realise this is the name of the comic strip, and taking a look at the new image of Spider-Man you will see that just maybe this new film is taking a more comic book approach to the franchise, and perhaps a darker tone as well.

So we have a title and new still, so roll on next July when we'll find out if Andrew Garfield is any good as Spidey and the mass comparisons between him and Maguire will start in earnest.

The moment that many a Spider-man fan has been looking forward to finally arrived yesterday and we have the first glimpse of Andrew Garfield in his outfit, even if it's a blood stained and ripped costume.

I for one don't think that the Spider-man series needed a re-boot, the Sam Raimi film is only 10 years old, it was a good film that had a raw edge to it that just worked, the second film was a more polished and better produced film and still good, the third film, well less said about that the better.

Because of the vast amounts of money that the franchise can bring Sony have naturally decided to make a new film, and with Sam Raimi jumping ship last year they decided to “re-boot” the series (re-boot being the latest buzz word in Hollywood) and Andrew Garfield got the coveted role of the web-slinger. This new picture shows that the new film looks maybe a little darker, and the film will be action packed to the core, Spidey is well beaten up in picture and in reality we only see glimpses of the suite, a new design was inevitable along with Spider logo.

Spider-Man (insert suitable number/sub heading here) is out on July 4th 2012 and along side Andrew Garfield are Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen and Sally Field with Marc Webb calling the shots.
