Star Wars, Avengers Top List of Most Anticipated Movies of 2015

Once again, sci-fi and superhero movies have this one in the bag, for the most part. According to a Fandango poll of over 1,000 movie fans, big science fiction franchises lead the most anticipated films of 2015, with Star Wars, Avengers, The Hunger Games, and Jurassic Park all making an appearance:

 

Most Anticipated 2015 Movie:

 

1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens

2. Avengers: Age of Ultron

3. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

4. Fifty Shades of Grey

5. Jurassic World

 

(Seriously, Fifty Shades of Grey needs to just go away.)

 

A thousand people doesn't seem like a very large sample size, so it's unclear how accurate these results are, but it sounds about right, as all of these films have huge built-in fanbases.

 

Here are Fandango's results for anticipated acting performances:

 

Fan Favorite Actress in 2015 Movies:

 

1. Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Joy)

2. Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron)

3. Angelina Jolie (By the Sea)

4. Melissa McCarthy ("Spy")

5. Halle Berry (Kidnap)

 

Fan Favorite Actor in 2015 Movies:

 

1. Robert Downey Jr. (Avengers: Age of Ultron)

2. Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Black Hat, In the Heart of the Sea)

3. Daniel Craig (Spectre)

4. Chris Pratt (Jurassic World)

5. Tom Cruise (Mission Impossible 5)

 

Biggest Male Breakout Movie Star, 2015:

 

1. Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey)

2. John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)

3. Levi Miller (Pan)

4. Neel Sethi (The Jungle Book)

5. Tony Jaa (Furious 7)

 

Biggest Female Breakout Movie Star, 2015:

 

1. Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)

2. Lily James (Cinderella, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies)

3. Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey, A Bigger Splash)

4. Kate Mara (The Fantastic Four, The Martian)

5. Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service)

 

There aren't really any surprises here, either, except possibly the omission of Miles Teller and/or Michael B. Jordan in Fantastic Four. I would also be surprised to see Chris Hemsworth on this list over Chris Evans, considering how much publicity the latter is getting for Captain America 3: Civil War, but the trailer for Black Hat looks really good and In the Heart of the Sea looks buzzy, at the very least.

 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out on December 18, while Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out on May 1.
