Only something as massive as the annual San Diego Comic-Con could knock "The Amazing Spider-Man" from the top spot the week after it opened. Not even Spidey can stop the ever-expanding pop culture juggernaut which includes 4 and a half days of panels, previews, celebrity interviews, cosplay and, oh yeah, comics. There's too much to cover in a single paragraph, so head here to see HitFix's exhaustive coverage of the event.

From Crackle: Week of July 9, 2012

As for the rest of this week's list...

July 13, 2012

 1. Comic-Con (Last week: No. 4)
Don't forget to hydrate!

2. "The Amazing Spider-Man" (Last week: No. 1)
Despite some fears, the Sony reboot has swung to a handsome $140 million in its first 6 days, and -- surprise! -- two more films will follow. 

3. "The Dark Knight Rises" (Last week: No. 2)
How is it not July 20 yet? Depsite Christopher Nolan's penchant for secrecy, more and more info is coming to light seemingly everyday. At least a handful of fans won't need to wait quite as long. 

4. "Ted" (Last week: No. 3)
Seth McFarlane already rules TV animation with the long-running "Family Guy," now his feature debut has scored a surprising $120 million

5. "Pacific Rim" (Last week: Not ranked)
Guillermo del Toro takes on giant robots and monsters. We have the cool new poster to prove it.

6. "Dredd" (Last week:  Not ranked)
The big screen do-over starring Karl Urban ("Lord of the Rings") as the Judge may be the first part of planned trilogy, and will be screened at Comic-Con months in advance. That's a good sign.

7. "The Hunger Games" (Last week: No. 10)
The final book in the series, "Mockingjay," will be turned into two films, for maximum profit. 

8. "The Hobbit" (Last week: Not ranked)
Peter Jackson is ready to wow Comic-Con fans once again with his two-part "Lord of the Rings" prequel. The new poster looks pretty nifty too. 

9. Walt Disney Studios (Last week: Not ranked)
Remember when Disney looked like a chump when "John Carter" bombed? Boy, things have changed since "The Avengers" and "Brave" made up for it. They've pushed the studio past (way past) the $1 billion barrier faster than any other studio. 

10. RoboCop (Last week: Not ranked)
The upcoming remake's scary dystopian future is highlighted in some cool new viral videos. You don't even need to buy it for a dollar -- it's free!
