Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been voted Most Anticipated Movie of 2023 according to an annual Fandango poll.
Around 5k moviegoers voted in the poll, which put new DC head James Gunn's last Marvel project in first place (via Deadline). These are the top ten in order of most anticipated to least:
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
- Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse
- Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
- John Wick: Chapter 4
- Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny
- Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom
- Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One
- The Hunger Games: The Ballad of the Songbirds and Snakes
- Creed III
- The Super Mario Bros. Movie
The poll also finds that 84% of movie-goers plan to see six or more movies on in theaters in 2023.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. is the last in the trilogy, with Gunn stating that he believes the film will break the unwritten rule of bad third installments. Vol 3. sees Chris Pratt's Peter Quill, who, while still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him to defend the universe along with protecting one of their own. This mission, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them. The film introduces Will Poulter's Adam Warlock, and provides an origin story for Bradley Cooper's Rocket – the latter of which has also already partially broken the internet.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to hit theaters on May 5, 2023. For more, check out our list of upcoming movies in 2022 and beyond, or, skip straight to the good stuff with our list of movie release dates.
