The new re-boot (the third for the franchise) stars Tom Holland and reaches the top with a £9.3 million opening weekend.
In terms of previous Spider-Man films this is fairly standard with only Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man doing far better.
Despicable Me 3 falls to second place but still manages a £5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to nearly £20 million.
With the school summer holidays fast approaching expect this film to hang around for a while.
Yet gain The Boss Baby is the longest running film of the week with 14 weeks on total on the chart and it is also the highest total grossing film with £28 million.
