A sequel to the 2012 re-boot franchise, a new generation of people have now accepted this take on the webbed hero in contrast to Sam Raimi and Toby Maguire's 2002 - 2007 series of films.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 enteres the box office with a weekend gross of £9 million, not quite enough to put it among the greats.
With only enough room for one superhero last weeks top film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier falls to four this week.
Other new films
The Love Punch
This time last year Olympus Has Fallen took over from Tom Cruise in Oblivion to become the top film on it's debut.
Five years ago Monsters Vs. Aliens was still holding the top spot with the highest new film coming from I Love You Man at four.
Ten years ago it was still Scooby Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed at the top with the highest new film The Butterfly Effect coming in at five.
Fifteen years ago saw The Faculty climb to the top knocking The Rugrats Movie down to two while the highest new film was An Ideal Husband at three.
This week Captain America: The Winter Soldier returns to the top of the UK box office, surprisingly knocking Rio 2 down to third, surprisingly because it's the Uk Easter holidays and the one big kids film seems to have died at the box office, although Captain America does have teenage appeal.
Highest new film this week is a return from Hammer Horror. The film The Quiet Ones is Hammers first film since the Daniel Radcliffe hit The Woman in Black, and although being no where near as big a hot as that film still does well landing at 6 with £681,305.
Other new films on this weeks chart are:
The Raid 2: Berabdal
Khumba a Zebras Tale
One year ago Oblivion starring Tom Cruise entered the chart at the top knocking The Croods down to second place.

After appearing in a couple of films, specifically Jack Reacher, that failed to be big hits, his new film Oblivion becomes the top film in the UK this week.
Taking a solid £5 million over the weekend the film easily displaced the animated film from DreamWorks which falls to second place. The Croods has done really well and has a total gross of over £22 million to date.

Ten years ago Rowan Atkinson took his James Bond spoof Johnny English to the top on if's first week with £3.4 million replacing the previous number 1 film The Recruit which fell to 3rd.
Fifteen years ago it was still Titanic at the top , it's 12th week at the top. Studios rescheduled most of their films in the wake of Titanic so there were no new films.
This is Cruise back in sci-fi territory for the first time since he was directed by Steven Spielberg in War of the Worlds back in 2005.
Take a look at the trailer below, it looks like Cruise will be in full action mode for 2013, starting with Jack Reacher out soon (actually just about has a 2012 release date of 26th December) and Oblivion released April 12th 2013.
