Marvel’s The Avengers, starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner, opens in theaters Friday, May 4. The action film tells the story of how a group of super humans recruited by the international peace keeping agency S.H.I.E.L.D. save Earth from fro an unexpected enemy.
Our friends at Fandango, the nation’s leading moviegoer destination, today revealed the results of its “Most Anticipated Summer Movie Survey,” in which Marvel’s “The Avengers” grabbed the top spot among all films picked by both men and women. The poll – which surveyed thousands of moviegoers on their must-see list for the biggest movie season of the year – also revealed that this may be a huge summer for Australian newcomer Chris Hemsworth, who stars in two of the summer’s most anticipated releases.
Male and female moviegoers offer a decidedly different perspective on the can’t-miss films of the summer. While women gravitated to the revisionist Kristen Stewart fairy tale drama, “Snow White and the Huntsman,” men stuck to their guns with action adventures — like “The Avengers” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” which ranked number one and two on the most anticipated summer movie list.
“It’s clear from the Fandango survey that there’s something for both men and women at the movies this summer,” says Fandango Editor-in-Chief Chuck Walton. “After an incredible first quarter, Hollywood is delivering even more spectacular choices for moviegoers in what’s shaping up to be one of the biggest summers in years. As our survey indicates, all eyes will be on Chris Hemsworth. The Australian heartthrob, who stars as ‘Thor’ in ‘The Avengers,’ and as the male lead in ‘Snow White and The Huntsman’, sits atop both the men’s and women’s ‘Most Anticipated’ lists.”
According to Fandango moviegoers, below are the top picks among men and women:
Men’s Picks for Most Anticipated Summer Movie:
1. “The Avengers” 31%
2. “The Dark Knight Rises” 23%
3. “The Bourne Legacy” 14%
