Fans name The Dark Knight Rises as Most Anticipated Superhero Movie of the Summer

 
Fans name The Dark Knight Rises as Most Anticipated Superhero Movie of the Summer

Batman smashes The Avengers and Spider-Man in IGN.com poll

MARCH 27, 2012 – Movie fans have named The Dark Knight Rises as the most anticipated superhero movie of the summer, according to a poll for games and entertainment site, IGN.com – one of the most visited websites for men aged 18-24.

Ahead of the biggest-ever blockbuster summer for superhero movies, more than half of the 53,000 fans polled picked the new Batman flick, as ensemble movie The Avengers came in second with 17,000 votes.  The Amazing Spider-Man reboot took just 5,000 votes, less than 10% of the total.

Fans are also excited about the characters in the new Batman movie; when asked which they were most excited to see, Tom Hardy’s Bane from The Dark Knight Rises was a clear favorite, pulling in more than half of the votes, followed by Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman. Mark Ruffalo’s Incredible Hulk and Rhys Ifan’s Lizard rounded out the top choices.

Rounding off a perfect sweep for DC & Warner Bros, The Dark Knight Rises Director, Christopher Nolan was a clear pick for ‘favorite Comic Book movie maker’ capturing an incredible 80% of the vote, leaving The Avenger’s Joss Whedon and The Amazing Spider-Man’s Marc Webb in his wake.

“The appetite for Batman and The Dark Knight Rises is enormous, and the level of anticipation for this film could not be higher,” said Chris Carle, Entertainment Editorial Director of IGN.com. “It’s Nolan’s last in the series, and the sequel to one of the highest grossing films of all-time, so the hype isn’t unexpected.”

Summer 2012 will be one for the fanboy books, with three of the most hotly anticipated comic book movies ever coming to the big screen. First, Marvel's ultimate team-up film arrives when The Avengers assemble on May 4. Then Spidey himself is reborn as The Amazing ASpiderman spins into theaters July 3. And finally, completes his Bat-trilogy when The Dark Knight Rises arrives on July 20.

FROM DIRECTOR CAMERON CROWE COMES THE UPLIFTING TALE BASED ON A TRUE STORY
Your browser may not support display of this image.

Featuring Family Friendly Audio Track The Whole Family Will Go Wild for this Heartwarming Adventure Starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson On Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download April 3

This Easter, be unpredictable, do something crazy and embrace your wild side!  Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents an inspiring adventure based on a true story of one man who brought a zoo back to life and family back together in WE BOUGHT A ZOO, arriving on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download April 3.  Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire) and starring Matt Damon (Contagion, True Grit), Scarlett Johansson (Iron Man 2, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Thomas Haden Church (Easy A, Sideways), WE BOUGHT A ZOO is “a sweet-natured tale…that you’ll want to see with your kids” (Liz Braun, Jam! Movies).

Benjamin Mee (Damon) is a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and adventure writer who, as a single father, faces the challenges of raising his two young children.  Hoping that a fresh start and a new life will restore their family spirit, Mee quits his job and buys an old rural house outside the city with a unique bonus feature: a zoo named the Rosemoor Animal Park, where dozens of animals reside under the care of head zookeeper Kelly Foster (Johansson) and her dedicated team.  With no experience, limited time and a shoestring budget, Mee sets out with the support of his family and the local community to reopen the zoo.  Now, Benjamin is no longer reporting an adventure story; he’s living it in his own backyard.


FROM MATILDA TO LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE:
TOP LITTLE GIRLS SCENE STEALERS

Your browser may not support display of this image.

As Rosie, We Bought a Zoo’s Maggie Elizabeth Jones manages to steal the spotlight from heavy-hitting co-stars Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson throughout the film. Join us as we countdown more precocious little ladies who have captured audiences’ attention in films throughout the years.

Abigail Breslin as Oliver Hoover in Little Miss Sunshine


Your browser may not support display of this image.
Breslin’s talent was so impressive; she was cast as Olive Hoover at age six, years before filming even started. Co-stars Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin, both mentioned that they were "astounded by her seriousness of purpose.”

Dakota Fanning as Lucy Diamond Dawson in I Am Sam

Your browser may not support display of this image.

It takes a pretty special little lady to outshine the likes of Sean Penn and Michelle Pfeiffer but Fanning, who earned recognition from the Broadcast Film Critics Association for portraying Lucy, did it with magical ease.

Natalie Portman as Mathilda in The Professional

Your browser may not support display of this image.
Young Natalie Hershlag spent her school holidays attending theater camps but never dreamed her 1994 audition would land her the controversial role that would launch her amazing career.

Mara Wilson as Matilda Wormwood in Matilda

Your browser may not support display of this image.
Wilson's film debut in Mrs. Doubtfire got the attention of Danny DeVito and led to her being cast as the title character in Matilda, adapted from the popular children's book by author Roald Dahl. She earned her first of two Saturn Awards for the role.

Drew Barrymore as Gertie in E.T.

It’s no surprise Drew Barrymore was successful at such a young age, following in the footsteps of thespian relatives Lionel, Ethel and John Barrymore.  Director Steven Spielberg felt Drew had the right imagination to play Gertie after she impressed him during her audition with a story that she led a punk rock band.

Natalie Wood as Susan Walker in Miracle on 34th Street


Eight-year-old Natalie Wood was convinced that co-star Edmund Green really was Santa Claus. It wasn't until Wood saw him out of costume at the wrap party that she realized he wasn't Santa.  Regardless, Wood, of course, would go onto iconic success in films like West Side Story and Rebel Without a Cause.

Tina Majorino as Molly Singer in Corrina, Corrina

Your browser may not support display of this image.
Majorino has found lasting success with roles in “Veronica Mars” and Napolean Dynamite but she first broke onto the scene as shy Molly Singer, who blossoms in the wake of her mother’s passing, under the watch of her father’s new housekeeper.


Christina Ricci as Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family

Your browser may not support display of this image.
Who could forget a gothy Ricci explaining her Halloween costume: “I’m a homicidal maniac. They look just like everyone else.” What a far cry from another Ricci breakout role, sexpot Didi Truitt in The Opposite of Sex, just seven years later.

Emma Watson as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone


Potter master JK Rowling wanted all Brits cast in the film versions of her franchise but French-born Watson was so perfect, she could hardly reject the idea.  Fans now eagerly await Watson’s next breakthrough: Non-Potter film roles.
Shirley Temple as Shirley Dugan in Stand Up and Cheer!

Your browser may not support display of this image.
Despite Temple actually only playing a minor role in the film, so big was her smile that this is often cited Temple’s breakout role. Long before she broke our hearts as The Little Princess or we fell in love with her as a Poor Little Rich Girl, Temple was achieving in mere minutes was most stars strive for in two hours.
