Utica, NY (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
The winners of the summer movie box office sweepstakes may be three reprises of proven hits. The Avengers, Men in Black 3 and Dark Knight Rising are far and away the most looked forward to summer blockbusters, according to a new IBOPE Inteligência survey.
One in three US adults looks forward to the summer movie season (35%). People ages 30-49 appear to be the strongest market for summer movies, as 43% say they look forward to them each year.
In the online survey, respondents were given a list of 13 summer movies and asked to choose the three they most looked forward to seeing. Fresh off its record-breaking opening weekend, The Avengers led with 28%, followed by Men in Black III 21% and The Dark Knight Rises 21%. None of the other choices drew more than 8%.
Theater goers most prefer seeing a highly anticipated summer movie after the busy opening weekend (40%), while 21% will wait for their favorites to be available on DVD, Blu-Ray or steaming. Midnight showings attract 3%, opening day draws 5% and 11% go some other time during the opening weekend.
A total of 58% say they typically see between one and five movies during the summer release season, and 6% view five or more. The most common number of movies people see during this time however is one (16%), two (16%) or three (15%).
IBOPE Inteligência conducted an online survey of 2,063 US adults. The margin of error is +/- 2.2 percentage points. A sampling of IBOPE Inteligência's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the US, was invited to participate from May 4-7. Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender and education to more accurately reflect the population.
