Fandango simply dropped one in all their “most anticipated” polls, this time regarding essentially the most anticipated motion pictures of 2019. These are the outcomes of three,5000 voters who participated within the late-December survey. And with out additional ado, let’s dissect!
Most Anticipated Blockbuster:
- “Avengers: Endgame”
- “Captain Marvel”
- “Star Wars: Episode IX”
- “Spider-Man: Far from Home”
- “Toy Story 4”
- “The Lion King”
There aren’t very many surprises right here, as superhero motion pictures (5/10) and/or Walt Disney motion pictures (eight/10) rule the pack. In truth, in the event you depend Warner Bros.’ Joker as a comic book e book superhero film (kinda-sorta), then all ten of those motion pictures are Walt Disney biggies and/or superhero motion pictures. Heck, even Glass is technically a superhero film that’s being distributed by Walt Disney abroad. Among the movies that didn’t present up that may nonetheless most likely be enormous, suppose Sony’s Men in Black International, Illumination’s Secret Life of Pets 2 and Universal/Comcast’s Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw.
Most Anticipated Actress:
- Brie Larson (“Captain Marvel,” “Avengers: Endgame”)
- Scarlett Johansson (“Avengers: Endgame”)
- Daisy Ridley (“Star Wars: Episode IX”)
- Karen Gillan (“Avengers: Endgame”)
- Margot Robbie (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part”)
- Emma Watson (“Little Women”)
- Jessica Chastain (“It: Chapter Two,” “Dark Phoenix”)
- Lupita Nyong’o (“Us,” “Star Wars: Episode IX”)
- Sophie Turner (“Dark Phoenix”)
- Taraji P. Henson (“What Men Want,” “The Best of Enemies”)
No actual surprises right here both, as once more superhero motion pictures dominate making up 4 of the slots alongside two Star Wars actresses. Margot Robbie and Taraji P. Henson are the exception, though we’ll see if the followers truly present up for What Men Want and Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. For what it’s price, I’d wager that Lupita Nyong’o (who I assume has at the least some half to play in Avengers: Endgame?) might be on the listing extra for Jordan Peele’s Us (the place she is the lead) versus Star Wars 9 (the place she is a glorified cameo participant).
Most Anticipated Actor:
- Tom Hanks (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” “Toy Story 4”)
- Robert Downey, Jr. (“Avengers: Endgame”)
- Chris Evans (“Avengers: Endgame”)
- Samuel L. Jackson (“Glass,” “Captain Marvel,” “Spider-Man: Far From Home”)
- Bruce Willis (“Glass”)
- Will Smith (“Aladdin”)
- Dwayne Johnson (“Hobbs and Shaw,” Untitled Jumanji Sequel)
- Joaquin Phoenix (“Joker”)
- Leonardo DiCaprio (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”)
- James McAvoy (“Glass,” “Dark Phoenix,” “It: Chapter Two”)
Okay, this can be a slight shock, however Tom Hanks is all the time at his hottest when he’s enjoying real-life examples of American excellence. And, yeah, a Mister Rogers biopic qualifies. Otherwise, Samuel L. Jackson will try to additional his lead because the biggest-grossing actor of all time (assuming he exhibits up in Endgame, he could finish the 12 months over $17 billion complete worldwide) whereas Will Smith actually is including industrial worth to Walt Disney’s Aladdin. Oh, and if Joker breaks out (and due to Venom I now suppose it can), it’ll be Phoenix’s very first field workplace hit (at the least 2.5x the price range) since Walk the Line again in 2005.
Rising Female Movie Star:
- Naomi Scott (“Aladdin,” “Charlie’s Angels”)
- Millie Bobby Brown (“Godzilla: King of the Monsters”)
- Sophia Lillis (“It: Chapter Two”)
- Cynthia Erivo (“Chaos Walking”)
- Rosa Salazar (“Alita: Battle Angel”)
Okay, everybody voting for Cynthia Erivo higher present a rattling good cause why they didn’t see Widows or Bad Times on the El Royale (the place she was the bloody main character) in theaters. Once once more, in the event you don’t assist them in theaters, you then’re not being truthful while you “stan” for them on Facebook. Otherwise, the listing is merely vaguely well-known actresses who’re showing in IP-driven franchise flicks. I believed everybody, together with Naomi Scott, was nice in that inexplicably good Power Rangers film final 12 months, however Aladdin will thrive (or not) primarily based on the IP, not the actress enjoying Jasmine.
Rising Male Movie Star:
- Mena Massoud (“Aladdin”)
- Winston Duke (“Us,” “Avengers: Endgame”)
- Noah Centineo (“Charlie’s Angels,” “The Diary”)
- Finn Wolfhard (“It: Chapter Two”)
- Richard Madden (“Rocketman”)
Okay, the lesson right here, to the extent that these outcomes signify the overall viewers, is that people actually are excited for Aladdin. And Noah Centineo will be the first case of a Netflix film star probably changing into a draw (at the least an added worth factor) in a serious Hollywood launch or two. Ditto Richard Madden (who performs John Reid in subsequent 12 months’s Taragon Egerton-as-Elton John biopic Rocketman). Or could, extra probably, they only voted for the man whose Netflix TV present or film they loved.
Most Anticipated New Standalone Comic Book Movie:
- “Captain Marvel”
- “Dark Phoenix”
Yes, as a result of I assume Hellboy, Dark Phoenix and Shazam felt unnoticed. Anyway, no surprises right here, besides that Dark Phoenix’s displaying right here and there could (or could not) level to a greater run than we’ve presumed. Truth be informed, will probably be fairly hysterical if we get six months of “rumors” about Kevin Feige starting improvement on MCU-affiliated X-Men motion pictures solely to look at Dark Phoenix pull Days of Future Past numbers right here and/or overseas. Won’t that be a pickle? Is that probably? No, however it will be extremely amusing.
Most Anticipated Animated Movie:
- “Toy Story 4”
- “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World”
- “Frozen 2”
- “The Secret Life of Pets 2”
- “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part”
I’m intrigued to see How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World above Frozen 2, however that’s most likely as a result of we all know virtually nothing concerning the Walt Disney mega-sequel. Otherwise, nothing out of the bizarre right here. It is somewhat dispiriting to see 5 sequels making up the listing, if solely as a result of big-budget animation has been the final secure zone for mid-to-big-budget authentic motion pictures over the previous couple of years. Still, you don’t get Secret Life of Pets 2 with out making Secret Life of Pets.
Most Anticipated Horror/Thriller:
- “It: Chapter Two”
- “Pet Sematary”
- “Zombieland 2”
- Untitled Annabelle Film
It’s fairly potential that It: Chapter Two can be Warner Bros.’ biggest-grossing film of 2019, whereas Jordan Peele’s Us is aiming to be the 12 months’s greatest “not based on anything” hit. Pet Sematary will open for Paramount on the identical weekend as A Quiet Place did this previous April, so they’re clearly hoping for comparatively comparable outcomes from the long-lasting Stephen King property. Otherwise, properly, I assume Zombieland 2 is definitely occurring? It’ll open round ten years after the primary movie, in a really totally different theatrical panorama, one the place a Zombieland 2 is a a lot safer field workplace wager than Zombieland.
