2019 will see the release of multiple highly-anticipated films, from sequels in exciting franchises to new interpretations of beloved classics. In a poll conducted by Fandango, Avengers: Endgame topped the charts of the film fans are most looking forward to seeing.

Per press release, "Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, and Star Wars: Episode IX were selected as the three most anticipated movies of the new year. Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (and as the voice of Woody in Toy Story 4) were voted 2019’s Most Anticipated Actress and Actor. More than 3,500 film fans voted in the last weeks of December for the top movies and performances they were most looking forward to seeing on the big screen in 2019."

“The popularity of superhero movies is at an all-time high as we head into the new year,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Marvel fans are particularly anxious for the final Avengers chapter after that Infinity War cliffhanger, and are eagerly awaiting the studio’s first standalone female superhero, Captain Marvel. It’s also clear Star Wars fans are missing their December fix, and they cannot wait for the next chapter in the Skywalker saga, Episode IX.”
