Tom Holland steps into the role previously played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

Sony and Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: Homecoming, the latest film featuring the beloved web slinger, opened to an estimated (and hearty) $117 million at the North American box office over the weekend.

The reboot stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker — aka Spider-Man — alongside Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Robert Downey Jr., Jon Favreau and Marisa Tomei. The British actor first appeared as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. The titular role was played by Tobey Maguire in the first three films before Andrew Garfield took over starring duties.

THR takes a look at the box-office performance of past Spider-Man movies based on their domestic openings through the years.

  • Spider-Man

    May 3, 2002

    Spider-Man launched to heroic business, setting the standard for the modern-day superhero tentpole. The pic, starring Maguire, launched to a record-shattering $174 million on its way to earning $614.2 million domestically, when adjusted for inflation. Unadjusted, those numbers are $114.8 million (still a record) and $403.7 million. Directed by Sam Raimi, Spider-Man earned $418 million offshore, an especially impressive number considering the international box office wasn't as big then.
