Established franchises top the list for fans' most anticipated movies to see in 2019 according to a survey by Atom Tickets, the social movie ticketing platform. Avengers 4: Endgame, starring Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo topped multiple lists by wide margins, including overall "most anticipated," "most anticipated superhero movie," and "most excited ensemble cast to see."
Captain Marvel and Toy Story 4 claimed the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively, on the overall "most anticipated" list of films to see in 2019. The bulk of the top 10 most anticipated movies are tent-pole films that have strong four-quadrant appeal, meaning they appeal to both males and females, and both over- and under-25 years old.
"Although we expect to see some movement in preferences as release dates near and studios ramp up marketing efforts, there were clear winners in each category. The battles for box office dominance between Dwayne Johnson, Lupita Nyong'o, The Avengers, and Star Wars will be epic, and the 2019 slate looks great overall," said Matthew Bakal, Chairman and Co-Founder of Atom Tickets.
Below are the top 10 overall most anticipated movies for 2019 according to Atom Tickets:
Avengers 4: Endgame
Spider-Man: Far From Home
Toy Story 4
The Lion King
Star Wars: Episode IX
X-Men: Dark Phoenix
