Spider-Man: Homecoming swung into US theaters this weekend and had an impressive debut. It topped expectations, taking in a huge $117 million, which makes it the franchise’s second most successful domestic opening.

2007’s Spider-Man 3 starring Toby Maguire remains top with a strong $151 million debut, but Homecoming beats Maguire’s first and second Spidey outings and both of Andrew Garfield’s:

It also stormed well clear of last week’s top movie, Despicable Me 3, which fell to second. Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver also moved down a place to third. See the top 5 below via Box Office Mojo:

Tom Holland’s first solo outing as the web-slinger also has a higher domestic debut than fellow superhero movies Wonder Woman and Logan, beaten only by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which took $147 million in its opening weekend.
