Second on the list of anticipated films – according to the annual poll by ticket-seller Fandango – comes Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, which will see Robert Downey Jr, Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth reprise their roles as superheroes Iron Man, Loki and Thor respectively. Due for release in April, it’s been a long time coming: the original film came out in 2012.
The final instalment of The Hunger Games franchise comes in third place, as film fans eagerly await the climax to the four-part adaptation of Suzanne Collins’s trio of novels. Mockingjay part 1 – which was last year’s most highly anticipated film – easily climbed its way to the top of the box office in November and so it seems likely the second will triumph next November, too.
Good news for those who voted Fifty Shades of Grey into fourth place as its release is just around the corner on 14th February, which just happens to be Valentine’s Day. The big-screen adaptation of EL James’s steamy novel will see the ever popular The Fall star Jamie Dornan take on the role of Christian Grey.
