Top Three Trailers with Highest Cinema Interest Among Moviegoing Audiences

Moviegoers tell us the wide release titles they’re most likely to see at a cinema, based on trailers recently played at theaters, among films opening in the next 10 weeks.

However, we’re making an exception to our usual “next 10 weeks” rule. In fact, “exception” might be an understatement, because NONE of this installment’s top three movies are coming out in the next 10 weeks.

Avengers: Endgame

Disney

Friday, April 26

  • While Trailer Impact usually only measures films coming out in the next 10 weeks, we’d added Avengers: Endgame to the survey after it posted the most global views online ever for a trailer within its first 24 hours.
  • 78.1% of respondents who saw the Endgame trailer this week said they intend to see it in theaters.
  • That’s up slightly from 77.4% last week, and down slightly from a 78.6% peak.
  • It’s also the second-highest number measured since the metric’s March 2018 inception, behind only Endgame‘s own record 78.6% upon its introduction.
  • The film spends it third week (all of its tracking weeks) in the top three, all at #1.
  • This intended final installment of the blockbuster Avengers superhero franchise stars an ensemble cast led by Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, and Jeremy Renner.

Captain Marvel

Disney

Friday, March 8

  • While Trailer Impact usually only measures films coming out in the next 10 weeks, we’d added Captain Marvel to the survey 12 weeks out.
  • 66.4% of respondents who saw the Captain trailer this week said they intend to see it in theaters.
  • That’s down from 70.7% upon its introduction last week, but still ranks as one of the highest numbers we’ve ever measured.
  • Captain spends its second week (both of its tracking weeks) in the top three, both at #2.
  • Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson star in this superhero origin story, Marvel’s first female lead after rival DC Comics struck box office gold with Wonder Woman.

The Lion King

Disney

Friday, July 19

  • 56.9% of respondents who saw the Lion trailer this week said they intend to see it in theaters.

  • Donald Glover voices the title character in the CGI remake of the original 1994 2D-animated musical classic.
