“Fantastic Beasts” Is Fall’s Most Anticipated Film

Unsurprisingly, the “Harry Potter” prequel spin-off “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” was the winner of a survey of the most anticipated Fall movies conducted by movie ticket site Fandango recently.

Looking at films opening specifically in the Fall (so no December releases like ‘Rogue One’), ‘Beasts’ topped a list assembled from 1,000 moviegoers evenly split between men and women. Coming in not far behind were the western remake “The Magnificent Seven” and Marvel Studios’ new feature “Doctor Strange”. Here’s the Top Ten:

1. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
2. The Magnificent Seven
3. Doctor Strange
4. The Girl on the Train
5. Moana
6. Bridget Jones’s Baby
7. The Accountant
8. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back
9. Inferno
10. Kevin Hart: What Now?

The Fall film season officially kicks off in two weeks following the Labor Day holiday next weekend.
