The action sequel, starring Andrew Garfield as the web-slinging vigilante, raked in $10.2 million (£6.4 million) in its first weekend, zapping fellow superhero Captain America from the number one position.

Bird-themed animation Rio 2 stayed strong in second place for another week by taking $1.9 million (£1.2 million), sinking Biblical epic Noah, starring Russell Crowe, down to third place with earnings of $1.5 million (£937,500).

Captain America seems to be have been defeated after coming fourth at the weekend, taking $1.4 million (£875,000). New comedy caper The Love Punch, starring Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan, rounded out the top five with earnings of $1 million (£625,000).
