‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and Final ‘Hunger Games’ Are Your Most Anticipated Films of the Fall, Obviously
If we gave you an informal poll right now about your most anticipated films for the remainder of the year, chances are Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 would be very high on the results of said poll — which makes this nifty new data from a consumer research group hardly surprising.
Via Variety, Piedmont Media Research tracking group released the results of a survey in which they polled 3,000 moviegoers about the new movies hitting theaters this fall. Mockingjay – Part 2 and The Force Awakens ranked highest among the titles people are excited to see in the coming months, with Mockingjay – Part 2 actually delivering the highest ratings Piedmont has collected in its five-year history. The final Hunger Games film received a 514 rating on a scale of one to 1,000, rating higher than Avengers: Age of Ultron, which previously held a record 509 rating.
Mockingjay – Part 2 also amazingly topped The Force Awakens, with the latter receiving a 495 rating, the third-highest in Piedmont’s recorded ratings. Rounding out the most anticipated films of the fall were Hotel Transylvania 2 with a 313 rating, The Martian at 255, and Spectre at 282.
Below that, Pan received a 205 and outranked Steve Jobs, which rated at 162. Even lower on the list: the Bradley Cooper chef drama Burnt, which hit 144, horror comedy Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse with 142, and Jem and the Holograms at 127 — which doesn’t bode well for their futures at the box office.
There are even more interesting statistics over at Variety, including data on moviegoer interest when certain actors and filmmakers are paired up.
