Bond is back. With rumors persisting that "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes will return to the director's chair after all, Bond 24 takes the top spot this week. Despite rumors that Christopher Nolan ("The Dark Knight") and Nicolas Winding Refn ("Drive") were interested, Mendes is reportedly in talks with Sony Pictures and MGM about returning to the franchise. His "Skyfall" was the biggest hit of the series, and also earned widespread critical approval. Will lightning strike twice?
As for the rest of this week's list...
June 5, 2013
Mendes. Sam Mendes.
2. "Fast & Furious 6" (Last week: No. 1)
The latest franchise entry has turned ka-boom into ka-ching at the box office.

The Marvel space-superhero saga is putting together quite an eclectic cast. "Doctor Who" vet Karen Gillan has signed on, joining recent adds John C. Reilly and Glenn Close.

The initial trailer is a quick blast of b-movie fun featuring Danny Trejo, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Lady Gaga and "Carlos Estevez."

It's apparently still on, with a new writer being brought onboard. We'll believe it when we see through your eyes.

Bane as Elton John? It might happen.
9. "Rodham" (Last week: Not ranked)
Which of these lovely ladies will play Hillary Clinton?
