‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Deadpool 2’ Are Most Anticipated Summer Movies According to Fandango Survey



LOS ANGELES – April 19, 2018 – Fandango, the ultimate digital network for all things movies, today revealed the results of its 2018 Summer Movies survey, in which “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Deadpool 2,” “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” and “Incredibles 2” were selected as the season’s top five most anticipated blockbusters, respectively.

More than 4,500 film fans voted this month in several categories and were asked to pick the one blockbuster they were most looking forward to seeing on the big screen between April 27 and Labor Day.

“This summer will deliver an unprecedented selection of movies, offering something for everyone at the multiplex,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “Fans are particularly looking forward to ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ not only the most anticipated film of the summer, but perhaps the decade. It’s the culmination of more than a dozen Marvel movies, and the fact that no one has seen the movie yet only adds to the excitement.”

To celebrate a summer of unprecedented blockbusters and incentivize moviegoing, Fandango is launching its new Fandango VIP+ rewards program this week. For the first time, Fandango ticket buyers can earn VIP+ Points redeemable for discounts and free stuff across Fandango’s family of businesses.  Full details on the Fandango VIP+ rewards program can be found here (www.fandango.com/VIP-Plus).
