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



Hiccup and Toothless are back to fly the often less-than-friendly skies in what's undoubtedly the most successful Viking franchise in Hollywood history.


How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits theaters June 13, 2014.


4) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes



Andy Serkis is back as Caesar, and this time he's joined by Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, and Keri Russell.


Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters July 11, 2014.


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.


6) Godzilla

)


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.


7) 22 Jump Street



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.


22 Jump Street hits theaters June 13, 2014.


8) Neighbors



Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Rose Byrne star in this wacky comedy about a war between frat boys and a young couple with a newborn baby.


Neighbors hits theaters May 9, 2014.


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.

Ok, not bashing or anything but who voted X-men over Cap, Guardians, Godzilla, Dragon, or even Transformers and Spider-man?

And why isn't cap on this list?

Oh does Cap come out in the summer?
superotherside - 3/11/2014, 10:34 PM
I could see if Spider-man or Transformers won. Barely anyone knows Guardians so yeah. But X-men? I'm trying to wrap my brain around this... lol.
NoMore - 3/11/2014, 10:34 PM
@AnnoDomini: Cap2 is not a summer's movie...
JerBear - 3/11/2014, 10:34 PM
Cap is spring.
seyrie - 3/11/2014, 10:35 PM
Cap comes out in April..it is technically a Spring release
JerBear - 3/11/2014, 10:35 PM
@superotherside
Xmen has Jennifer Lawrence in it.
Jollem - 3/11/2014, 10:35 PM
yeah, those are my top two. spidey and the x-men are gonna own
blackandyellow - 3/11/2014, 10:35 PM
I'm surprised Transformers didn't win.
Destined - 3/11/2014, 10:36 PM
Oh...and they probably don't count Cap as a Summer flick.
KidGoku - 3/11/2014, 10:36 PM
Damn almost forgot about How To Train Your Dragon 2. But those are basically my Top 2, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is #3 on my list.
blackandyellow - 3/11/2014, 10:40 PM
The only movies I plan on seeing in the theater this year are Cap 2, X-Men, and probably Dumb and Dumber To. I'll probably get dragged into seeing 22 Jump Street, but I won't be happy about it.
konoyaro - 3/11/2014, 10:40 PM
makes no sense to me but what a hell do i know??
my list is,not counting cap goes,
guardians
godzilla
hercules
apes

staypuffed - 3/11/2014, 10:41 PM
Days of Future Past is my most anticipated.
And who the hell put How to Train Your Dragon ahead of Godzilla?
KidGoku - 3/11/2014, 10:43 PM
still want to see Blind Ref

)
Kurne - 3/11/2014, 10:45 PM
What the hell? Why not Spidey????
FightAs0ne - 3/11/2014, 10:45 PM
Same site where people said Iron Man 3 was number 1 and the Wolverine was number 5. I'll wait till they're all out to judge.
ezra - 3/11/2014, 10:47 PM
If we're not including Cap:

1) Godzilla
2) X-men
3) Dawn of Planet of Apes
4) Guardians
5) Spider-Man
6) Transformers
7) 22 Jump st
8) Ninja Turtles (assuming it's not delayed. where the f*** is the footage?)
blkyank - 3/11/2014, 10:48 PM
If the rumor of the new trailer coming out on Mar 24th is true,DOFP will kick off the main push of its marketing blitz
exactly 2 months out from its release date. Don't forget the film is getting massive free advertising when both The Hunger Games and The Hobbit,top lined by major DOFP character actors, get released on home video. The new trailer will play in front of Noah,then get played in front of The Winter Soldier.There will be much awareness for the film by May.
SpiderFraud - 3/11/2014, 10:48 PM
Lol.
SuperBond - 3/11/2014, 10:49 PM
Top 3
Xmen
Spiderman
Dawn Of the Planet of the Apes
Ranger14 - 3/11/2014, 10:50 PM
Are the vote numbers for Transformers wrong? Based on the number of votes it should be number 2 on the list. Perhaps I am just not seeing things right after a long day.
JJJameson - 3/11/2014, 10:50 PM
I'm sorry, but I'm calling it bollocks. Flixster is as much reliable as IMDB when it comes to this sort of thing. The evidence is there for anyone willing to see, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Transformers 4 are the most anticipated blockbusters this year. Period.

However tells you different is simply wrong. And I don't mean no harm or a cheap shot at X-Men fans, I am one myself, but there is simply no way in hell that DoFP is "Summer's most anticipated movie". It seems to me that Fox is just "branching out" with their marketing strategy, if you know what I mean.
feedonatreefrog - 3/11/2014, 10:51 PM
I'm more excited for The Flash than any of these movies. Franchise fatigue is taking its toll on me.

Cap is apparently really good though!
SpiderFraud - 3/11/2014, 10:53 PM
I am surprised DoFP is number one but I don't really care about this list. I just want the movie to be good.
Ramiel - 3/11/2014, 10:54 PM
My list would be:

1. GOTG
2. TASM2
3. Cap2
4. X-Men: DOFP
5. Godzilla
6. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
7. How to train your Dragon 2
8. 22 Jump Street
sKeemAn - 3/11/2014, 10:54 PM
The GP loves X-men. That is why Fox makes these movies. GOTG amd Dawn of the Planet of the Apes are my most anticipated.
FoneBone - 3/11/2014, 10:56 PM
Yeah, okay...BULLSHIT. Actually WALK DOWN THE STREET and ask people, "what summer movie are you most excited for?" I guarantee, GUARANTEE they won't know of any movie coming out this summer. Until the do that, don't tell me about the "general audience."
TheRationalNerd - 3/11/2014, 10:57 PM
Lol, watch how the rotten tomato defenders go against this one!
l0rdleg0las - 3/11/2014, 10:57 PM
I am really having a hard time getting interested in Godzilla. II love the old classics, but ever since the last big budget movie I have lost interest.

For me my list of must sees are

Amazing Spider-Man 2
GOTG
Hercules
22 Jump Street
Neighbors
X-Men (love X-Men but have been so disappointed by the franchise it is now out of morbid curiosity i continue to see these)
Apes
FoneBone - 3/11/2014, 10:58 PM
Hell, even SOME, and I mean SOME actually know about Transformers, and that would be because of the trailer on YouTube.
Brady1138 - 3/11/2014, 10:59 PM
Godzilla. That is all.
SpiderFraud - 3/11/2014, 10:59 PM
I hope this movie is beyond awesome, so I can get a "Singer Was Right" T-shirt.
manofmidgard - 3/11/2014, 10:59 PM
yikes. I kinda wanna see x-men dofp, but its pretty far down on my list. the trailer is kinda boring and everything they have shown us so far looks so bad. i am so annoyed by how bad quicksilver looks. and the sentinels. and beast. and the new mystique. I just hope its better than it seems. i want it to be good, but i just don't expect it to be.

i seriously can't wait for cap, gotg, and zilla. when we went to see 300, they had trailers for all 3. i was giggling like a lil kid.

1. captain america
2. godzilla
3. guardians of the galaxy
4. 300 rise of an empire (which I just saw and it was awesome!)
5. dawn of the apes
6. amazing spiderman 2
7. hercules







and way down here somewhere... x-men
TheRationalNerd - 3/11/2014, 11:00 PM
(Heath Ledger Joker Voice) "But one little ole poll from rotten tomatoes...AND EVERYONE LOOSES THEIR MINDS!!!"
manofmidgard - 3/11/2014, 11:02 PM
jump street looks dumb as hell.
FoneBone - 3/11/2014, 11:02 PM
The REAL GENERAL AUDIENCE dont know shit about any of these movies, EXCEPT for Transformers. Can't stand Rotten Tomatoes. And DON'T ANY OF YOU DARE TO START A MARVEL VS. DC FIGHT AND BRING UP RT SCORES, because that seems to be the trendy thing here lately, and it's gotten annoying, I don't know why I'm the only person to speak up on this.
TheRationalNerd - 3/11/2014, 11:03 PM
@FoneBone

Some? EVERYONE knows about the Transformers bro. Lots of chicks are even disappointed Shia isn't coming back. lol
MadTitan - 3/11/2014, 11:03 PM
