‘Avengers: Endgame,’ ‘Captain Marvel’ Rated By Atom Tickets As Most Anticipated 2019 Film Releases

Avengers: Endgame came out on top in Atom Tickets’ ranking of the most anticipated 2019 film releases.

The survey by the social movie ticketing app, whose backers include Lionsgate, Disney and Fox, placed Captain Marvel and Toy Story 4 second and third, respectively. Endgame, though, finished on top of several lists (for most anticipated overall movie, ensemble cast and superhero movie) by “wide margins,” the company said.

The preview list follows a forecast last week from Fandango, which also had Avengers leading the pack.

“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.

“Despite all the headlines about streaming formats dominating the industry, our survey found that consumers are still very enthusiastic about seeing movies in the theater,” he added. “In fact, an overwhelming 86% of survey respondents said they are likely to see movies in theaters in 2019. Interestingly, a large majority of consumers — 76% — plan to watch the movies they loved and saw in the theater again at home.”
