A new survey revealed the most anticipated movies of the year. The latest “Star Wars” film became a hit and it wouldn’t be too surprising if fans are asking for more.
In a survey conducted by ticket site Fandango.com, moviegoers were asked to vote for the movies they would like to see in 2016. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Finding Dory” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” are among the most anticipated movies this year.
“Star Wars” got the top spot and it was highly expected, according to Erik Davis, Fandango’s Managing Editor.
“‘Star Wars’ is conquering everything out there — it’s a box office behemoth. Seeing ‘Rogue One’ at No. 1 for 2016 shouldn’t be a surprise, even if I don’t think many people know it’s not a sequel.”
According to USA Today, “Rogue One” is the first standalone “Star Wars” film. Fandango Chief Correspondent Dave Karger noted that “Star Wars” fans are already counting down the days until December 16.
For those who didn’t expect “Finding Dory” to land the second spot, Davis has an explanation.
“Adults loved the original, and there’s a whole generation of kids who have grown up with a true fondness for ‘Finding Nemo.’ People have wanted to see these characters on the screen for a very long time.”
Upcoming DC film “Batman vs Superman” is third on the list, followed by an untitled Jason Bourne Movie. The untitled movie marks the popularity of Matt Damon, who’s the most anticipated actor in the poll. It was ahead of another superhero film, “Captain America: Civil War,” who got the fifth place.
“The new year promises plenty of action, star turns and first-time comic book adaptations to satisfy a wide range of consumers and to continue the momentum of 2015’s banner year for moviegoing.”
