Forum Buzz: 'Hobbit' & 'Les Miserables' Lead Most Anticipated Movies

on December 04, 2012 by Shawn Robbins

hobbit-lesmis-startrek2.pngAfter a strong early response to our newest column last week, the second edition of's Most Anticipated Movies sees The Hobbit hold onto the top spot for a second straight week. For the year, this marks the 13th time that the film has ranked or tied for #1 among movies we've been tracking since the forum feature's inception.

Notable changes this week include strong bumps for Les Miserables and Zero Dark Thirty. The former jumped to #2 while the latter entered the top ten, both on the heels of news regarding very well-received critical screenings of the films last week. Django Unchained also benefited from some growing buzz while The Hunger Games: Catching Fire posted a strong debut on our chart at #8 one year ahead of its November 22, 2013 release.
