Four Out Of Five Of 2015's Most Anticpated Films Are Geek Related

With DC and Marvel's announcements of what is to come over the next few years movie wise, coupled with Disney's plans in regards to Star Wars films, I for one have lots of movies that I am looking forward to seeing starting next year. A survey taken by Fandango indicates that the majority of our populations taste in films is very close to my own.

What is the most anticipated movie of next year?

Not only is this movie on the top of my list, but mostly everyone elses. That movie is none other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The full top five are:
  1.  Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  2. The Avengers: Age of Ultron
  3. The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay, Part 2
  4. 50 Shades of Gray
  5. Jurassic World
I will admit my own morbid curiosity will have me checking out 50 Shades Grey. Hey, every millionaire playboy can always pick up some new tricks from a fellow millionaire playboy. I am curious as to what the demographics were for the survey as far as gender and age group, but chances are not too many men are interested in that movie.

With the leader of the Avengers star Robert Downey Jr. the top contender for favorite male performer and Hunger Games star Lawrence taking up the mantle in the female category and driving the returning franchises for 2015, Star Wars newbies John Boyega and Daisy Riddle have made their own breakout lists.

I don't think any of the movies on the list are a surprise to anyone, but it does show the continued increase in popularity of the Geek genre related films, which is fangasmic news to this Geek.

What upcoming film are you excited most about for 2015 and beyond?
