The short story goes… Fandango surveyed over 1,000 Fandango users, asking them what films are they most anticipating in 2012. Fandango then sorted the results by gender, and these were the results:
Men: 1. The Hobbit; 2. The Avengers; 3. The Dark Knight Rises; 4. The Bourne Legacy; 5. Men in Black III.
Women: 1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2; 2. The Hunger Games; 3. The Hobbit; 4. Dark Shadows; 5. The Avengers.
Obviously a mostly younger Fandango user base was polled for (or replied to) the survey. But it looks like The Hobbit and The Avengers will likely have huge weekend openings when they debut next year.
Fandango also asked its users for their most anticipated remakes expected to be released in 2012, and here are the results, again, by gender:
Men: 1. Total Recall; 2. The Amazing Spider-Man; 3. The Great Gatsby; 4. Snow White And The Huntsman; 5. Mirror Mirror
Women: 1. Snow White And The Huntsman; 2. The Great Gatsby; 3. Mirror Mirror; 4. Total Recall; 5. The Amazing Spider-Man
Identical lists, except for the order.
But forget Fandango’s survey; I want to do one right here on S&A. But I’m interested in just the first question – your top 5 most anticipated movies of 2012. Leave them in the comment section below; I’ll give it a few days, then compile the results, and post for all to see. Hopefully a lot of you chime in so that we get a nice, healthy sample.
