SURVEY: Wonder Woman Voted Most Anticipated Summer Movie

LOS ANGELES, (FNN NEWS) — Fandango, the nation’s leading digital network for all things movies, today revealed the results of its 2017 Summer Movies survey – Fandango’s largest moviegoer survey ever — in which “Wonder Woman” was selected by film fans as the season’s most anticipated blockbuster.

Rounding out the top five fan picks for the summer are “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” and Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk.”

More than 10,000 film fans voted online from April 27-May 19, representing the largest response to a moviegoer survey in the company’s 17-year history. Fans were asked to pick the one movie they were most looking forward to seeing on the big screen between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

“Wonder Woman” (opening June 2) is currently outpacing 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger” at the same point in the Fandango sales cycle. Fandango is also seeing brisk sales for its branded “Wonder Woman” gift cards, which can be found at fandango.com/giftcards.

According to a separate Fandango survey of “Wonder Woman” fans:

  • 92% are excited to see a standalone female superhero movie.
  • 87% wish Hollywood would make more movies featuring female superheroes.
  • 73% watched the “Wonder Woman” TV show when they were kids.

“It’s a thrill to see “Wonder Woman” command the top spot on our most anticipated summer movies list,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Early screening reactions are positive, with audiences responding favorably to the film’s exciting blend of action, adventure, humor and romance. Plus, fans have been waiting their entire lives to see a live-action “Wonder Woman” movie, and the film’s breakout star Gal Gadot makes it worth the wait.”
