Our forums' most anticipated movies for the week ending March 28, 2013

Forum Buzz: 'Thor', 'Man of Steel' & 'Iron Man 3' Shuffle to Break the 'Star Trek' Streak

on March 28, 2013 by Shawn Robbins

im3-stid.pngFor the first time since January 24, Forum Buzz has a new "most anticipated" movie.

After an eight-week run in the top spot, Star Trek Into Darkness was dethroned and knocked into second place. Voting was close, but for the first time Iron Man 3 can claim the #1 spot on our forum chart. With the release of both titles now less than two months away, The Dark Knight Rises' record 12-week run at #1 is safe for awhile.

The other upset of the week came from Thor: The Dark World which managed to overtake Man of Steel's votes and crack the top three for the first time. The latter flick dropped to fourth place.

Meanwhile, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug received a three-spot boost into a tie for fifth with Catching Fire. Smaug was the recent benefactor of new buzz thanks to the online premiere of the movie's first footage on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Fast & Furious 6 climbed three positions back up to #7 while Monsters University leaped five spots back into the top ten. Oblivion slipped, however, and fell five rungs down to #12. Other notable films with big increases in buzz this week included 42 and Pain & Gain.

The only new release of Easter weekend to chart in it's final week of eligibility was G.I. Joe: Retaliation at #16.
