Wonder Woman voted most anticipated summer movie, according to Fandango

05.23.2017

Now, I've made my excitement and anticipation for WONDER WOMAN known many times before. And while I still have misgivings about certain things (I'm iffy about setting it in WWI, I don't like the idea that she quits at some point), just seeing Diana kick ass and take names in the various cool trailers has eased a lot of those problems for now. And the great preview reviews (no matter how dubious early reactions can be) haven't hurt. I'm hopeful. Hell, I've already got my Wonder Woman costume ready for the premiere! Just gotta finish the shield!

However, what's more heartening, is that according to the largest survey in the company's history, Fandango has discovered I'm not alone. According to them:

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 “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 atfandango.com/giftcards

Not only that, but according to a separate survey, they found out that "92% are excited to see a standalone female superhero movie. 87% wish Hollywood would make more movies featuring female superheroes.", which is awesome. After everything that's going on in the world, and even behind-the-scenes at the DCEU itself, stuff like this is encouraging to hear.

Here's what Patty Jenkins - the director of WONDER WOMAN - had to say:

Listen, who knows what'll happen? I am not sure of anything...People weren't clear whether anybody would want to see a Wonder Woman film and I was always like, 'What? Like, it's Wonder Woman, man. This is such a great character!' But I could feel that [positivity] coming from the world at moments, so to have that mirrored back, to have positivity mirrored back at us at this moment in the way certain people are reacting to the movie and then that from the audience is like... I just can't put into words enough how grateful I am and we are for having believed in this movie and having the world come back at us that way. That's unf***ingbelievable!

Meanwhile, WONDER WOMAN will kiss and take names in theaters June 2nd, 2017.

Don't underestimate this movie...

Not only does this film has the comic book fanbase... but it will also target the same audience that went to see Beauty and the Beast. If the reviews are indeed good, this will be the film to beat until Justice League and Star Wars.

That last sentence is very original -- well done, weenie.

How do you like being in the friend zone with all those women you know? The women who are actually pumped for this movie are so rare, so far away from the target demographic, that they're considered fanboys and are lumped in with them as such for box office projections. Let's revisit this after opening week and see who's right.

No way no how

They can keep hyping and pushing and lying, but it's all talk until the box office receipts tell the real truth. This bizarre idea that theaters are going to be flooded with young girls wanting to be a superhero is preposterous.

Just watch. If I'm wrong, I'll stand corrected. But I'm feeling pretty confident I'll be lying in wait to say, "I told you so."

Try again, you angsty teen. I enjoyed BvS and expect Wonder Woman to be a serviceable flick. My prediction is purely regarding a female superhero movie. Expect to hear the same from me when they try to hype up Captain Marvel (or even Black Panther).

I stand by what I said. I don't think this will be the biggest movie of the summer. Transformers or Spider-Man will surely outgross it. The box office receipts aren't bad, but they're nowhere near that of the "Most Anticipated Summer Movie."

And like I said, theaters were not filled with young girls wanted to be superheroes -- they were filled with boys, men, and fanboys. Because again, and I cannot stress this enough, WOMEN DO NOT CARE ABOUT SUPERHEROES.

How can anyone who has seen recent DC films be excited for this? Mind boggling.

Nothing else is coming out though

Summer movies started early this year. Logan, GotG2, Alien:C have already come out. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day we are getting shit like Mummy, Dark Tower, Valerian (all 3 set to bomb and flop at the box office). Spidey is old hat by now and I am worried people aren't interested in him anymore since they fucked up so royally with the Amazing series. He has a lot to make up for. Pirates looks bad too, and has to make up for a shitty movie from a few years ago as well. Nobody is going to

Pirates looks bad too, and has to make up for a shitty movie from a few years ago as well. Nobody is going to see Wimpy Kid, Baywatch. Cars 3 will make Cars 2 money and be big with kids, but Captain Underpants might make more than Cars 3, but its still not a film everyone can look forward too. Everyone is sick of Transformers as well.Planet of the Apes is a niche market too. Wonder Woman wins basically because its the first WW movie, its a superhero movie and showed off 70% of the film already in trailers so people know what to expect. You gotta understand movie ticket sale charts 13-18 year old females as the highest group of ticket buyers. So it makes sense they are all excited to see a strong female kickass. I am just excited for it being a WW1 movie, as we hardly get those since every other war movie is about WW2.

Film looks amazing and I feel like a lot of people are underestimating how great and well this movie is going to perform. Gadot looks perfect as Wonder Woman and each trailer has been better than the previous; so just goes to show how this type film is whah the genre and fans of the genre need right now.

Yeah I can believe it.
The other big films this summer are another Transformers, another Pirates, Wonder Woman is at least a new take on superheroes with a well known female hero.
Even Spider-Man we've seen before giving his debut away in Civil War so he's not really new and the trailer has a Disney/Nickelodeon sitcom vibe to it.

With the scathing reviews for Pirates and Baywatch this weekend, people might just wait it out and save their money for Wonder Woman. I'm guessing north of $100 mil opening if buzz continues to be super positive.
