After IMDb and Fandango released their Top 10 lists for 2019 movies, Atom Tickets has done the same.

“Avengers: Endgame,” starring Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Mark Ruffalo topped multiple lists by wide margins, including overall “most anticipated,” “most anticipated superhero movie,” and “most excited ensemble cast to see. “Captain Marvel” and “Toy Story 4” claimed the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively, on the overall “most anticipated” list of films to see in 2019.

“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.

“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,” added Bakal. “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.”
