Well, it wasn’t unanimous, but there was certainly a clear winner. The movie that the vast majority of you are looking forward to?
With 38% of the vote, Star Trek Into Darkness easily takes home the gold. Ultimately, I agree with this — although it’s a pretty tough call for me between Into Darkness and Iron Man 3. And, coincidentally, Iron Man 3 does take a distant second place with Man of Steel coming up for third. (I care considerably less about this one.)
The movies that nobody is terribly keen to go see? Fast and Furious 6, Lone Ranger, The Wolverine, and Mortal Instruments: City of Bone. No joy for these movies — apparently, they aren’t anyone’s top priority this summer.
None of them, however, are the movie that overwhelmingly won for Least Interesting Summer Blockbuster. That movie?
Nearly half of you voted for The Hangover Part III — I can only assume because the sequel was so reputedly terrible. (I never did actually see it.) Fast and Furious 6 scored a distant second place, and the bronze medal was split in three, between the YA adaptation, Mortal Instruments: City of Bone, my own personal least favorite, Lone Ranger, and my most anticipated film, Star Trek.
The movies that nobody voted for in this poll? Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, Kick-Ass 2, and The Wolverine.
As far as I can tell, the winner for Most Meh Summer Blockbuster is going to The Wolverine, since it’s the only movie that nobody voted for shit on either poll.
