Poll Results: Most Anticipated June 2012 Movie Releases

As if there were any doubt:

Prometheus

THE RESULTS:
– Prometheus: 17 votes
– Brave: 9 votes
– Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter: 3 votes
– Seeking a Friend For the End of the World: 3 votes
– Snow White and the Huntsmen: 3 votes
– Magic Mike: 1 vote
– Rock of Ages: 1 vote
– Other: Safety Not Guaranteed: 1 vote

We all knew Prometheus would finish #1, so that’s why I went the multiple choice route with this poll. Brave finished second as expected, but it’s good to see some scattered votes for a handful of other films. June doesn’t look like *too* thrilling of a month overall, but there could be some surprises in there. Here’s hoping!

THIS WEEK’S POLL: With Men in Black 3 opening this weekend, there has been a lot of talk about Will Smith. Fogs’ Movie Reviews had a great discussion about everyone’s perception of the popular actor, and I want to add to it:

What is Will Smith’s best film? Like him or not, the man has had a very successful career so far, and there should be quite a few legit contenders in this poll. Should be fun to see how this one turns out.

Have a great holiday weekend everyone!

      Right there with ya, Tom. I definitely want to see Prometheus on its opening weekend, something I rarely do. Thanks for stopping by!

    Think the original Men in Black just about edges out Independence Day but its close. Agree with you about June being a slow month, only want to see Prometheus and Abraham Lincoln.

    • Eric says:

      I’m really curious about Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. It could be a lot of fun, but it really depends how straight they play it. I’ll probably check it out either way. Thanks for stopping by!

    Not long until Prometheus now – god damn excited!

    I’m a fan of Will Smith. Sure the likes of Seven Pounds and Hancock weren’t anything to write home about, but I like his choice of films and roles.

    Was tempted to vote for Bad Boys, it was the role that really made him known as a potential movie star but went for Ali. Transformed himself with an amazing role there.

    • Eric says:

      I really need to see Ali. It definitely seems like a movie I would appreciate. Loving the diversity of votes so far! I don’t think there is going to be a runaway winner at all.

    Wow, I think Sir Ridley has a huge hit in his hands, and he desperately needs it too! I voted for BRAVE but hey, I’m anticipating Prometheus, too!

    I love partaking in these polls every week. Cannot wait for Prometheus. As for this week’s poll: Ali Bomaye!!

    There aren’t many times I’ve pre-booked my cinema ticket. In fact, I’ver NEVER pre-booked my cinema ticket and yet I find myself with a numbered seat ready and waiting for me on Friday for Prometheus. Says it all really.Can’t wait!

    Too bad I missed this one since I took a month off from blogging to attend to other things….
    It wouldn’t have mattered much anyway since I’d have voted for Prometheus (my comeback post is a preview of it) and maybe Brave in second place.
    As for MIB III, I’ll probably wait until it comes out on Blu-Ray as I’m not the franchise’ biggest fan.
    Glad to see you’ve kept this blog as good as ever. Come support the revival of mine haha

    • Eric says:

      Hey Niels, glad to see you back in the blogging world! Thank you for the very kind words.

      Prometheus was definitely the odds-on favorite in this one. Can’t wait until it comes out next weekend!
