Ed,

None of the films listed have a release date. Most are in Post-production; the remainder are listed as Completed.

Ed,

Winter is frequently a dumping ground for failed films. I doubt you will get reliable release dates prior to November and probably not much sooner than the Winter Solstice.

And I'm not sure what you mean by release dates, but I spot checked a lot and they are there.

Like I said I learned from the first one that this is not easy.
Will update things along the way.
Wanted to have it in place now so as to facilitate ease of change as time goes on.

Ed,

Films listed as Post-Production frequently slip their intended release dates. I suspect your final list of films will differ significantly from your current version of the list.

I archived your list so we may compare it to the final list.

As promised an update.
#1 on the list in popularity has slipped to #33

1/3 of the list has made some change in position.
Approx 5 new titles are new.
Check out the revised list if you like.

1917 sounds interesting - and Benedict Cumberbatch is a great actor. -(I don't think that I'll watch 'The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard' but I love the title!)

Gitte, come back often to this as it will be an ongoing change as release dates are firmed up. Some will be added and others will drop off.
It should be fun to watch the changes.

This list will be altered once every one or two weeks.
So the titles will fluctuate as time progresses. The list will look much different in late November.
I thought it would be fun to watch the list change as time passed by.

2019 is for me the 7th bottom rated year of all time. 

So far, the only movie that I liked was Joker, if The Irishman fails, I will definitely, forget this year.

Margot Robbie is interpretation was a big deception for me in Suicid Squad

There is too much Godzilla movie  ( I want a break a watched 2019 one 2 weeks ago !!!!!!)

So my vote now is 1917.

I think 1917 should be on the list. You may be discounting it because IMDb lists a screening in early december, but its US release is still at Christmas.

NarniaisAwesome it has all chances to become a sleeper hit and (finally) launch Valiant Comics properties into public knowledge a bit more. Maybe not as much as Marvel and DC, but at least to the same level as some of the succesful Image (Spawn) and Dark Horse (The Mask) properties.

I've actually nothing against superhero films, although I may have been known to insult some Marvel/DC in the past, lol.  :)  I actually kinda like Vin Diesel as a leading man; he's got all the qualities of The Rock without the "can't really take him seriously" thing goin' on.  :D  I'd love to see him as the Wolfman, if and when they ever remake that.

Ed,

You may wish to add a link to the release date for each of the films in your poll suggestion. For instance, for The Call of the Wild (2020):
[link=https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7504726/releaseinfo]21 February 2020 (USA)[/link]
Which renders as:
21 February 2020 (USA)

= = =

As you no doubt have seen, the MOVIEmeter rank of films and their release date is quite volatile until about a month before the film's release. Since you have an IMDbPro account, you can also see the volatility of the MOVIEmeter rank by looking at some of the plots of MOVIEmeter on IMDbPro. (Please do not post information from IMDbPro on Get Satisfaction.)

Dan.
Would rather do that once as that is a lot of work.
By what date is this viable so I can plan to do the final 35.
I know this must be getting close.
I figure I have one more wipe and reorganization. Or is this needed immediately.

When would be nice so I can do the final list in preparation. So it can be done as close as possible to going live. That way hopefully something is not on the list that should not be there.
Thanks
Ed

Ed,

I've done around six of these anticipated polls. I've released the concept to other authors, since this kind of poll gets a lot of votes in general and has a good chance of being featured on the IMDb Home Page. Note: that does not mean there is any guarantees that it will be featured; the Winter versions of the anticipated polls tend to feature films are likely to be less successful in the box office.

I would tend to freeze your poll about a week before the Winter Solstice.

It may be less labor intensive for you, it's a courtesy to those taking the poll to include the date.

Prior to this poll going live, I will verify the US release dates of ALL of the films you have listed.

As you surely have discovered by not, "Anticipated" polls require a lot of work to be done properly. The results should be interesting.
