James Bond beats Top Gun 2 in poll of Top 40 films Brits can't wait to see back in cinemas

    156

    Aside from a few months last year, cinemas have been forced to close due to the ongoing pandemic. But now as UK restrictions are set to ease further from May 17, seeing the latest movies on the big screen is about to become a reality once again. Now a new poll of 2000 UK adults commissioned by Comparethemarket.com, the company behind 2 for 1 Meerkat Movies tickets, have found the Top 40 films that Brits are most looking forward to seeing at cinemas when they re-open.

    The most-anticipated movie for Brits to see in cinemas is Daniel Craig’s final James Bond movie No Time To Die.

    This doesn’t come as a huge surprise considering it’s been almost six years since the last 007 movie came out and this one has been long delayed with an original release set for October 2019.

    But just behind in both second and third place is Tom Cruise with his highly anticipated Top Gun: Maverick, arriving 35 years after the original, and Mission: Impossible 7.

    As for the four Marvel movies set to hit cinemas this year, Spider-Man: No Way Home is the one Brits are most looking forward to, followed by Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Eternals.
