Wonder Woman 1984 tops the list of most anticipated films on Atom Tickets

That's cool, but doesn't mean much. Most of those movies had trailers drop recently, so they're fresh on the respondents' minds. I'm sure if, say, Eternals had dropped a trailer it would have been above Fast and Furious and Bond...

You don’t have to bring it back to marvel all the time. 
 

of course those films had trailers drop recently, or there would be no poll 😂
 

Eternals has no relevance in this article, it doesn’t have a trailer. No point making an assumption.

I'm not really sure what point you're trying to make, beyond getting defensive for some reason? My point is obvious and valid - that poll means sweet fuck all. Had this been the result as of July this year, it would show unprompted interest for all those movies and might have meant something. As is, you have recent trailers or digital/DVD releases for movies within the same franchise, thus skewing any result.

 

The bolded part in particular is a head scratcher. It's not a poll exclusively for movies with recent trailers, as evidenced by FF9 being there. It's open to the overall release slate. Hell, going by the fact that FF9 is on there without a trailer should mean that's heading for 500 domestic, no? 

I used Eternals as an example simply because there's a very good chance it will be a bigger movie than half of those on that list, thus showing the pointless nature of this "poll". As I said, cool, but just as meaningless as that Chinese one...

Re the accuracy or lack thereof of ticket booking year end polls, Fandango's poll actually predicted the original Wonder Woman being the biggest film of Summer 2017 and outgrossing Justice League, something people in late 2016 didn't seriously think would happen.

 

Sometimes these polls can be misses and I'm assuming Atom has a smaller polling base than Fandango, but judging by the general reaction to the WW84 trailer, at this point it served its purpose incredibly well by getting people jazzed for the movie, so it's not hard to imagine that this really is people's most anticipated 2020 movie. At least right now.

Looked up Atom's poll from last year. This was the Top 10

 

Quote
  1. Avengers 4: Endgame
  2. Captain Marvel
  3. Spider-Man: Far From Home
  4. Toy Story 4
  5. The Lion King
  6. Star Wars: Episode IX
  7. Aladdin
  8. X-Men: Dark Phoenix
  9. Glass
  10. Jumanji Sequel

 

Wasn't exactly how things turned out, but almost all the stuff that landed here made a lot of money, so it works. Obviously these Atom and Fandango things won't be 1 to 1 to the rest of the year (they poll this stuff in December after all), but I agree with you that these polls generally do point towards what's trending and interesting to people.

That's actually far more accurate than I expected, as in I can see how the few disparities happened. A weak August/late July really helped propel TLK across the movies ranked 2-4 in that list. If FFH and TLK had their release dates switched, who knows how their BO would have shaken out, especially with their respective reviews.

 

Glass died by its reviews and poor WOM so no surprise it didn't make the Top 10. Which only leaves DP. Is it possible the bad reviews and crowded marketplace played a bigger role than expected? Did GOT S8 actually kill some people's anticipation to watch Sansa lead a CBM

One thing I definitely miss was when Fandango did a Top 30 Most Anticipated List, with a cool little gallery and all. I'm surprised they never did it again since there's no real loss in doing so.

The GoT s8 juggernaut will save The Eternals that didn't even make this list, just watch.

We Got This Covered is a complete crock of shit that will make up anything, and I mean anything, for a click. They've literally spent the last several months going down a list of Disney's animated films claiming a live action version is being made every few weeks. They're just awful.

More likely, Glass made the list as the first big-ish movie of the year, and Dark Phoenix already had a trailer.

 

The only real misses for the list are Joker and Frozen 2. Neither had a trailer at the end of the year, so that's somewhat expected.

Both also had the most effective first trailers among 2019 films, when they eventually dropped.

    Is it possible DOM may have Top 4 movies of the year all directed by women and starring women? (as Gemma Chan's Sersi was said to be Eternals' protagonist at SDCC).

     

    Imagine if BOP breaks out too. Should be an interesting year.

    Soul will break into Top 5.

    BOP is not looking like breakout to me. It's looking more like Shazam than Aquaman and Joker.
