Johnny Depp ("Black Mass") and Julia Roberts ("Secret in Their Eyes") Named as the Fall Movie Stars Most Likely to Get Oscar Nods
LOS ANGELES - September 3, 2015 -- Fandango, the nation's leading digital destination for moviegoers and fans visited by 36 million unique visitors per month, today revealed the results of its Most Anticipated Fall Movie Survey, in which "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" (opening November 20) was voted as the most anticipated fall movie. For a third consecutive year, a "Hunger Games" movie was voted by Fandango ticket-buyers as the top film in this autumn poll (previous winners were "Catching Fire" in 2013 and "Mockingjay - Part 1" in 2014).
Posted online during the last week of August, Fandango's Fall Movie Survey polled more than 1,000 moviegoers on the films they're most excited to see on the big screen in the months from September through November.
"Fall is the time of year when Hollywood brings out its more serious fare," says Fandango Chief Correspondent Dave Karger, "and this is one of the busiest fall seasons in memory. ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2' is the movie ticket-buyers are anticipating most, thanks to the overwhelming momentum and excitement the franchise has built up over the last three years. Fandango fans can't wait to see how Jennifer Lawrence and crew bring the end of the saga to life on the big screen."
"With additional big-screen star power, trailers for Johnny Depp's ‘Black Mass' and Julia Roberts' ‘Secret in Their Eyes' already reveal that the pair of Academy favorites delivers intense performances," continues Karger. "That's why Fandango fans deem them most likely to receive more Oscar love this year."
In other categories, Pixar's "The Good Dinosaur" was selected as the most anticipated family film of the season, while master of suspense M. Night Shyamalan's latest scare-fest, "The Visit," was picked as the most anticipated fall horror flick.
