A new Fandango poll points to Thor vs. The Hulk being even more anticipated than the Justice League vs. Steppenwolf...
According to a new Fandango survey, Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League are the two most anticipated Fall 2017 movies. The superhero flicks from Marvel Studios and Warners Bros are both scheduled to arrive in November while the Blade Runner sequel (which lands in third) opens in October. And for those who are confused as to why Star Wars: The Last Jedi didn’t land a spot: Fandango’s survey only encompasses films that are arriving from September through to November this year.
“Moviegoers always look forward to the fall season when some of the year’s best films debut,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “This year there’s an especially diverse slate full of a little something for everyone. Thor: Ragnarok claims the most anticipated title, thanks to the overwhelming momentum and excitement the Marvel Studios brand has built up over the years, plus fans can’t wait to see more of Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, as well as Cate Blanchett and Tessa Thompson in new-to-the-franchise roles.”
As tickets went on sale for Ragnarok on Thursday, the excitement for the Marvel film extended to its cast, with Hemsworth, Idris Elba, and Cate Blanchett all placing highly in the most anticipated actor and actress categories.
A Bad Moms Christmas topped the most anticipated comedy list, while Pixar’s Coco is the most anticipated family movie.
