X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST Voted the Summer's Most Anticipated Movie
Superheroes reign supreme once again as X-Men: Days of Future Past claims the top spot in Rotten Tomatoes' Most Anticipated Movies of the Summer poll. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy finish 2nd and 5th respectively. Check it out!
It looks like the lack of a full trailer might be working in X-Men: Days of Future Past's favor as its been voted the summer's most anticipated movie in a poll conducted by Rotten Tomatoes. The list was ranked by Rotten Tomatoes' "want to see" percentage and the number of votes each film received. The general audience seems to still be enamored with CBMs, which should be good news for us, as all three of Marvel's superhero properties make the top five as Sony Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man 2 finishes 2nd while this summer's Marvel Studios release, Guardians of the Galaxy finished a distant 5th. Other action films, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Godzilla also make the list. Check out the full list below:
1) X-Men: Days of Future Past
The stars of the X-Men trilogy (Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman) share the screen with the folks from X-Men: First Class (Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy). Plus Brian Singer is directing, so the anticipation for this probably couldn't get much higher.
X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters May 23, 2014.
2) The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Look out! Here comes Andrew Garfield in his second outing as everyone's favorite web-slinger. This time out, ol' webhead faces down Electro (Jamie Foxx), the Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) and the Rhino (Paul Giamatti).
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters May 2, 2014.
3) How to Train Your Dragon 2

5) Guardians of the Galaxy
Unlike the Avengers and the X-Men, this posse of Marvel characters is short on a-list superheroes, but with a cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Zoe Saldana, it's got enough star power to excite the comics crowd.
Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1, 2014.
Nothing can kill Godzilla -- not an oxygen destroyer, not King Kong, not even Roland Emmerich. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston try to avoid getting squashed this time.
Godzilla hits theaters May 16, 2014.

Given the breezy comic chemistry between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street, it's no surprise that audiences are looking forward to more.

9) Transformers: Age of Extinction
Look up "critic-proof" in the dictionary and you'll find the Transformers franchise -- though with Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, and the dinobots on board, perhaps a sense of cautious optimism is warranted.
Transformers: Age of Extinction hits theaters June 27, 2014.
10) Hercules: The Thracian Wars
Critically and commercially, The Legend of Hercules laid a pterodactyl-sized egg earlier this year, but hope springs eternal for RT users that a second cinematic go-around in 2014 -- this time with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the legendary strongman -- will be mightier.
Hercules: The Thracian Wars hits theaters July 25, 2014.
