PRESS RELEASE: IRON MAN 3 Is Officially THE Most Anticipated Movie Of Summer 2013
...and Man of Steel doesn't even make the Top 5! The biggest seller of movie tickets in North America has today announced that they have learned through an online poll that Iron Man 3 is THE most anticipated movie of the summer. Read on for details!
The Avengers clearly helped to make Tony Stark more popular than ever as the Armoured Avenger's upcoming return to the big screen has been voted by moviegoers as the most anticipated movie of the summer. As you can see from the press release below (courtesy of our friends over at Fandango), Iron Man 3 came out on top in a recent poll they conducted, while Star Trek Into Darkness took second place. Zack Snyder's Man of Steel meanwhile was beaten by the likes of The Great Gatsby and Fast and Furious 6. Could this be an early indication of how well the film will perform at the box office? Hopefully not, as the future of the DC movieverse rests squarely on the shoulders of Superman at this point! Sound off with your thoughts below...
Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoer destination, announced today that tickets are now on sale at Fandango.com and Fandango’s award-winning mobile apps for Iron Man 3, this summer’s most anticipated movie, according to a proprietary online poll of Fandango moviegoers.
