‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Most Anticipated Summer Movie By Wide Margin (Survey)

Avengers Age of Ultron

Moviegoers can’t wait to see Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes pool their collective superpowers in order to save the world from annihilation, according to a new survey by Fandango.

The ticketer’s annual look at the most anticipated summer movies revealed that Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was the clear favorite for a majority of movie fans. That’s no surprise given that the sequel is already outselling its predecessor in terms of pre-tickets by a wide margin and is on pace to open to more than $200 million.

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” received the nod from 54% of the more than 1,000 people surveyed. It was followed by “Jurassic World” with 14% and “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” with 10%. The top five was dominated by sequels, with “Terminator: Genisys” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” rounding out the group.

Earlier this year, Fandango took a look at that most anticipated films of 2015, but in that poll “Avengers: Age of Ultron” had to settle for second place behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

“Minions” was selected as the most anticipated family film, receiving 33% of the vote. Pixar’s “Inside Out” scored second place with 23% and “Tomorrowland” coming in a close third at 22%. “Pan,” a new spin on the Peter Pan story, picked up 8% of the vote, while “Max,” an adventure film about a heroic dog, nabbed 7%.

“Pitch Perfect 2” was picked as the most anticipated summer comedy at 34%, besting “Ted 2” at 22% and “Entourage” with 16%. Other anticipated comedies included “Magic Mike XXL,” which is probably relying more on Channing Tatum’s abs than its quips, with 11% and Melissa McCarthy’s “Spy” with 7% of the vote.
