A new poll from MoiveTickets.com asked fans to choose the film they are most anticipating in the coming year.  Fans voted from August till October and picked the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" film as number one.  The poll indicates that the sixth Harry Potter film is more anticipated by those polled than other future high-profile releases such as the sequels to "X-Men," "Transformers," "Ice Age," and "Night at the Museum."  In regards to the results of this poll, Garry Hiller, a president for MovieTickets.com, is quoted as saying: "These polling results provide very early, valuable insight into comparative long-lead moviegoer awareness and interest levels."  The Top 10 List of Most Anticipated Films from MovieTickets.com is as follows:

  •     1.  "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince"
  •     2.  "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"
  •     3.  "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"
  •     4.  "Public Enemies"
  •     5.  "Angels & Demons"
  •     6.  "Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian"
  •     7.  "The Informant"
  •     8.  "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs"
  •     9.  "The Day the Earth Stood Still"

Of course it is! It was the most anticipated movie for 2008 too, but we all know what happened to that so of course now that we suddenly have to wait another year before we can see it our anticipation is going to be through the roof. I mean come on did you geniuses over at movietickets.com seriously need a poll to tell you that one? HP will always come out on top!

I would except nothing less, though i don’t think the movie will due justice to the 6th book whatsoever. I’’m sure they’ll leave out tons of information as they’ve done in each other film.

How is it that Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (apparently the most anticipated movie of 2009) FAILED to make the top 3 choice for both females and males? And Night at the Museum 2, the sixth most anticipated movie of 2009 MADE the top three choices for both females and males. I don’t get it.

See? That’s why Warner Bros. postponed the film. More hype!

Of course it is better than other sequels, because Harry Potter is seven parts of a whole rather than- well that was cool, let’s try and draw it out. Its certainly the movie I’m most anticipating in 2009, though I did not vote in this poll.

Bella, have you heard of a little film called The Dark Knight? I’m pretty sure it was the most anticipated of 2008.

I think Indiana Jones was pretty anticipated as well.

This made me realize how many bad films are out now that night at the museum 2 would make a most anticipated list.
