'Star Wars' Edges Out 'Age of Ultron' As Most Anticipated Film of 2015

In news unlikely to surprise anyone, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the most anticipated film of 2015, according to a survey conducted by Fandango.

The J.J. Abrams film was followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Fifty Shades of Grey and Jurassic World. Noticeably absent from the list are high-profile releases like Furious 7, Tomorrowland and the next James Bond installment Spectre.

To arrive at those results, Fandango surveyed more than 1,000 visitors to its website between Dec. 22 and Dec. 29. Fans were also asked about their favorite actresses and actors in 2015 releases, breakout stars and most anticipated family films.

While Age of Ultron may not have finished on top, stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson were selected among the fan-favorite actors.
