Survey: Thor, Katniss Top Movie-Inspired Halloween Costumes
Fandango's study finds that "Hunger Games" costumes are the most popular for groups, while children will be putting on the "Despicable Me 2" minion suit.
The God of Thunder and the Girl on Fire top the list of most popular movie-inspired Halloween costumes this year, according to a new survey.
After surveying thousands of people, Fandango found that the top costume for men this year will be Thor, while women will be dressing as Katniss from The Hunger Games.
For groups, Hunger Games again takes the top spot, while children will be doing their best to imitate the Despicable Me minions.
The timing makes sense for Thor and The Hunger Games to top the list, with both the sequels hitting theaters in November. Disney and Marvel's Thor: The Dark World starring Chris Hemsworth opens on Nov. 8. Fandango also has announced that 3D screenings of the Thor sequel will be preceded by a special extended look at Captain America: Winter Soldier in theaters. Other popular male costumes include Superman, Iron Man and Ron Burgundy from Anchorman 2.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which sees the return of stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, opens in theaters on Nov. 22. The story follows Katniss (Lawrence) and Peeta (Hutcherson) as they are pulled back into the deadly games while unrest grows in their dystopian society. Other popular female costumes include Theodora from Oz: The Great and Powerful and Effie Trinket, also a character in The Hunger Games.
