With May just two weeks away, the summer movie season is fast approaching (and yes, it begins in May as movie studios release their tentpole films early to jump the gun). Fandango recently polled moviegoers on their most anticipated films and actors, and found that Marvel's The Avengers is living up to its superhero hype, garnering the most votes for multiple categories.
Men and women remained split on their top five most anticipated summer films, however, Australian heartthrob Chris Hemsworth, who stars as Thor in The Avengers and the lead in Snow White and the Huntsman, sits atop both lists:
Men’s Picks for Most Anticipated Summer Movie:
1."The Avengers" 31%
2."The Dark Knight Rises" 23%
3."The Bourne Legacy" 14%
4."Men in Black 3" 8%
Women’s Picks for Most Anticipated Summer Movie:
1."Snow White and the Huntsman" 22%
2."The Avengers" 16%
3."Men in Black 3" 13%
4."The Dark Knight Rises" 10%
5."Dark Shadows" 8%
We also threw in some fun character questions in our survey, too, such as - Among this summer’s female movie stars/characters, which one would win in a fight? Black Widow, Snow White, or Catwoman? See who got the top votes in our results gallery: Summer 2012's Most Anticipated Movies
The Avengers, Men in Black 3, Marvel, Chris Hemsworth, The Bourne Legacy, Snow White and the Huntsman, Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises, Dark Shadows
Without a doubt, "Prometheus" looks the best and is what I'm looking forward to the most, w/ "Dark Knight Rises" and "Avengers" close behind. I'm sure "MIB3" will be fun too. From the list, I am dubious that "Bourne" comes in at number 3 without Matt Damon returning. And no "Spiderman"? Also surprising.
"prometheus" is the one i'm looking forward to...
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
