Based on our readers' votes, it looks like Warner Bros.'s next remake / adaptation. Frank Herbert's science-fiction classic Dune will be the grand prize this year, especially without the competition of a Star Wars movie or Avatar. The appeal can only be attributed to the book's popularity, cults following David Lynch's 1984 film, various TV adaptations, star cast and promising direction by Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049, Arrival).
Wonder Woman 1984, Eternals, and Black Widow are major female-led superhero films, while Ghostbusters, Top Gun, and Halloween are franchised for over 30 years with dedicated followers. The latest Bond and Godzilla / Kong films represent even older franchises, with 007 in its 58th year, while Godzilla in its 66th and Kong entering its 87th year on the movie screen. Tenet is the main outlier as the only totally original movie in the Top Ten, and this can probably be attributed to director Christopher Nolan's enduring fan base, the Hitchcock or Spielberg generation pilot.
