Forum Buzz: 'Man of Steel' Overtakes 'Star Trek Into Darkness'; 'Catching Fire' Closes In On 'Iron Man 3'

on January 14, 2013 by Shawn Robbins

manofsteel-trek2-ironman3.pngAfter a four week run as our forum's most anticipated movie, Star Trek Into Darkness slipped to the runner-up spot last week and gave way to director Zack Snyder's and producer Christopher Nolan's Man of Steel. The results were close though: in our preferential voting system, the Superman reboot came out ahead by a single point. This is Man of Steel's first claim of the #1 spot on our chart since becoming eligible in June 2012.

Sticking around at #3 for a fourth straight week is Iron Man 3. Although, with recent online buzz surrounding the release of new production stills for Catching Fire, the Hunger Games sequel is knocking on Tony Stark's door by jumping two spots back into the fourth position.

Arguably the most notable change this week, aside from the switch in leaders, comes from the Evil Dead remake. The horror flick leaped eleven positions up to #9.

Notable exits this week include Zero Dark Thirty (#15), Gangster Squad (#14) and A Haunted House (#41).
