    I was feeling bored so I took the Moviefone.com 'Best and Worst of 2007' poll. The last question on it was, "Which 2008 movie are you most excited about?". I voted for TDK, but the results showed that 40% voted for Indy, while only 22% voted for TDK.

    This is probably nothing, but I wanted to give you fanboys something to chew on.:indy::brucebat:

    I grew up with both Indy and Batsy. So i really have no clue to which I'm more hyped about. I guess I'd say Indy, Because Batman had just been around more. I've never felt like there isn't enough Batman.

    Right now I'm more pumped for The Dark Knight, but once the trailer for Indy hits I'll probably be more pumped for that.

    Luckily, the movies will be released like two months apart so I'll be able to obsess about each one equally.

    Well, obviously if you're gonna ask that question on this board, you're gonna get close to 99% of people saying they anticipate TDK more than Indy... But I don't think it's that abnormal that a nation-wide poll would indicate otherwise. Indy's been gone from the big screen far longer than Batman, he hasn't had one bad film in his entire run (unless you count Temple of Doom, but even that didn't nearly rate the suckage of B&R) and I think in general people remember the character much more fonly than they do Batman.

    Temple of Doom wasnt even Batman Forever bad to this young playa. But I'm surprised that The Kingdom of the Krystal Skull is more anticipated than TDK, I thought people hated old ass fools trying to relive former glory.

    I don't know how to tell you guys this but outside comic book fans, no one cares about TDK. Most of my friends aren't even aware or care that there is sequal. Outside the net Batman Begins isn't seen as a great film just an enjoyable one.

    Raifers of the Lost Arc was nominated for an Oscar.

    There was zero reaction to 'TDK' trailer that came in front of 'I Am Legend'. The only reaction was to the Will Farrel comedy. No one outside Batman fans cares. It's not that they won't see it, they will, and it will do well. It's just that the average moviegoer could care less.

    Anything Raiders/Spielberg is much more an event for the average moviegoer.

    Considering, IMO, Lucas can no longer make a decent movie and Spielberg is hit or miss, this Indiana Jones flick is their golden opportunity to screw up the franchise by ending it on a down note. It's not unlike that last Bond flick Connery made when he was way too old to be playing Bond.

    It might be good but the whole thing is so unnecessary I can't get too excited about another Jones movie.

    Of course Indy 4 is gonna be more anticipated. It's been nigh on 20 years since the last Indy film, and 2 or 3 since Batman Begins.
    What would cause more anticipation? 20 years of unfulfilled pent up fanboy desire, or 3?

    Well...spiderman is more anticipated than both Pirates and Harry Potter...yet Pirates and Harry Potter is more well recieved than spiderman 3 in terms of worldwide box office...


    We have to wait and see the marketing effort put forward by WB as time goes on.

    In terms of worldwide gross that's true. But when talking BO nearly everyone is speaking about domestic numbers. Domestic numbers are still the first and foremost numbers that are looked at, and the benchmark for success or failure.

    Spider-Man 3 - $336,530,303
    Pirates 3 - $309,420,425
    Potter 5 - $292,004,738

    I really hope it's not just us Batman-fans waiting for The Dark Knight, or liking the trailer.

    Considering I've never seen an Indiana Jones movie, I couldn't care less about it. In fact, I never knew there was a new one coming out until a few days ago.

    Its true there was no reaction to TDK trailer in the theater I was in, but I'm still surprised people are so looking forward to the new Indy when usually people react to things like this like "what, another one? what is this, Indiana Jones part 900 Indiana Jones and the Search for 1 A Day pills" and stupid, stupid ass jokes like that, when really there hasnt been one in forever and theres only four total.

    I hate old ass fools trying to relieve former glory. I hope Indy 4 crashes & burns and takes the careers of all involved down with it.

    Oh and until Indy at least comes out with a trailer, I'd say TDK has the most buzz right now, its not even a question.

    Once it picks up steam, I'll probably be anticipating Indy a bit more. I love Batman, but this is Indy on the big screen for one last time, the first in nearly 2 decades. I definitely can't wait. But on this note, Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince is also more anticipated than TDK, I'd also be pressed to put Narnia on there as well, both will make more than The Dark Knight. But in the end, what does it all matter? You see how the anticipation for Spider-Man 3 left us.

    Oh and welcome back Super Luda, haven't seen you in forever but I don't think I ever got along with you either.

    I can definently say around here on the East Coast (NYC, DC) the people I talk to are getting ready for Batman, even in the UK and Europe, when I was there talking about movies it was this movie.

    Maybe 6 months ago, I would have said Caspain, Harry Potter and Indy (Hell, I'd probably put Iron Man because of the strong trailer).....

    but RIGHT NOW as of December 2007.....Batman got this. The Viral Marketing and mainstream pub really has been the difference maker, its been garnering the attention. And lets face it, most people already know what to expect with those others movies. I think there's a genuine curiousity and intrest about how Heath's Joker is gonna pan out.

    Oh and another thing, I dont think Dark Knight will become like Spiderman 3. That movie had so many other factors going for it, that caused it to be a dissapointment (Complacency from the cast and crew heading into 3rd film, Raimi's reluctance to even have Venom in the first place).
