2023s Most Anticipated Movies: ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’ Leads Fandango Survey

Digital movie ticket retailer Fandango has unveiled the results of its 2023 Most Anticipated Movies Survey, and what audiences want to see the most is James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Never mind anyone who is voicing their upset on Twitter over the filmmaker’s plan for the revised DC universe. In a poll of 5K moviegoers, they plan to show up when the Disney Marvel Studios finale opens on May 5 next year.

Another encouraging stat: 84% of ticket-buyers plan to see six or more movies on the big screen in 2023.

Nine of the top ten must-see movies of next year are sequels, all ten are franchises, with Universal/Illumation/Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. Movie in the No. 10 slot repping the first chapter in a series.

2023’s Most Anticipated Blockbusters:

Some interesting top choices: most-want-to-see comedy is Magic Mike’s Last Dance on Super Bowl weekend, Feb. 10-12; star Channing Tatum having launched his movies around the Valentine’s Day frame. Warner Discovery Boss David Zaslav should be glad to hear that result about Magic Mike 3 as it’s one of the movies that got promoted from streamer HBO Max to a big screen release under his new distribution strategy for the conglom.

In another must-see for Warner Bros next year: New Line’s feature take of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot is one of the most anticipated horror films. The Gary Dauberman directed movie, which was moved out of the post Labor Day corridor this past year, is not yet dated for 2023.

Other results of the annual Fandango survey:

–99% are excited to see more new movies debuting in theaters.

–97% will attend the theater more often in 2023 than in 2022.

–82% claim the moviegoing experience can’t be recreated at home.

–72% would like to see more movies in IMAX and other premium large screen formats.

“With more than a hundred new releases heading into theaters, fans are excited to see movies back on the big screen where they belong,” says Fandango Managing Director Erik Davis. “The new year promises a significant increase of movies that people want to see in theaters, from returning franchises like Indiana Jones, Creed, Hunger Games and Mission Impossible, to highly-anticipated re-imaginings like The Little Mermaid and Haunted Mansion, to off-the-wall entertainment like Cocaine Bear and M3gan. 2023 boasts one of the most exciting movie line-ups in years.”
