AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Has Topped Fandango's Most Anticipated Summer Movie Survey

This summer is jam-packed with blockbuster movies, including Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, and Solo: A Star Wars Story to name but a few. But which films are fans most excited to see this season?..

Digital movie network Fandango, which is responsible a large majority of online ticket sales for movies, has revealed its annual list of most anticipated films. More than 4,500 moviegoers participated in a survey to determine this year’s most anticipated summer blockbuster, and the results probably won’t surprise you.

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War topped the list as this year’s most anticipated summer blockbuster. For those who have been keeping a tally on pre-sale tickets, this isn’t a shocker. Avengers: Infinity War needed only six hours to break Fandango’s record for best-selling superhero movie in the first 24 hours of pre-sales, previously held by Marvel’s Black Panther. Additionally, Fandango previously revealed that Avengers: Infinity War was selling twice as many tickets as Black Panther and is actually selling more tickets than the previous seven MCU movies combined. It was revealed today that the film is closing in on overall pre-sale ticket records held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi with more than $50 million worth of advance tickets sold. So, again, the fact that it’s the most anticipated summer blockbuster of 2018 isn’t a surprise.

What is a surprise is that the second most anticipated movie this summer isn’t Solo: A Star Wars Story, but rather Fox’s Deadpool. This probably doesn’t sit too well with Disney, but it’s not unexpected given the skepticism surrounding the upcoming spinoff. Rounding out the top five most anticipated summer blockbusters is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Incredibles 2, respectively.

Fandango’s survey also included poll questions on most anticipated summer family film, fan favorite actress and actor, most anticipated live-action comedy, and the fan pick for this year’s summer sleeper. Check out all of the results below.
