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

    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.

     

     

     

  • Spider-Man 2

    Maguire resumed his duties playing Peter Parker in the sequel, which set off loud fireworks in its debut over the July Fourth holiday. The movie grossed $164.9 million for the official four-day holiday weekend on its way to a lifetime domestic gross of $531.5 million, when accounting for inflation. Unadjusted, those numbers are $125.5 million and $373.6 million, respectively. Spider-Man 2 grossed another $410.2 million internationally.

     

  • Spider-Man 3

    The final installment of the original trilogy scored a record-breaking opening of $174 million before landing at $432.4 million domestically, when accounting for inflation. Unadjusted, those numbers are $151.1 million and $336.5 million, respectively. Internationally, Spider-Man 3 earned $418 million.

     

  • The Amazing Spider-Man

    Starring Garfield in the titular role, the reboot took advantage of the July Fourth corridor by opening on a Tuesday. The Amazing Spider-Man grossed $155.7 million in its first six days, including $70.5 million for the three-day weekend, on its way to earning $297.7 million all in domestically, when accounting for inflation. Unadjusted, those numbers are $137 million, $62 million and $262 million, respectively. Internationally, it grossed $495.9 million.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2

    Garfield made his final appearance in the red and blue suit in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which debuted to $97.2 million on its way to topping out at $215.4 million domestically, when accounting for inflation. Unadjusted, those numbers are $91.6 million and $202.9 million, respectively. Overseas, the pic earned $506.1 million.
