There are people on the Internet who really do not want to like Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters reboot; that much is clear from its trailer’s status as the most ‘disliked’ movie trailer in YouTube history. With Feig in the director’s chair and a roster of talented comedic actresses in the lead, though, not everyone shares that sentiment.

It is certainly true that there has been a vocal contingent of people online who do not like the idea of an all-female Ghostbusters team any more than they liked the idea of a female lead in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Feig has had little patience for such naysayers, though, responding to their criticisms in unapologetic fashion. While the old saying goes that it is easier to catch flies with honey than vinegar, it may be that Feig doesn’t need to win over those particular skeptics.

The results of a Fandango summer poll (via NBCUniversal) show that enough people are interested in Ghostbusters to make it the most anticipated comedy of the summer, ranking above Central Intelligence in the number two spot and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising at number three. That is not entirely surprising given that the trailer reached 60 million YouTube views shortly after its release, even if some of those views were from people who were hate-watching it. Ghostbusters is joined by Captain America: Civil War, which ranked as the most anticipated summer action movie, and Finding Dory, which ranked as the most anticipated family film of the summer.

Fandango offered some additional stats from their survey as well, including the following:

  • 71% would consider seeing the same movie more than once on the big screen
  • 66% plan to go to the movies at least four times this summer
  • 60% expect to see more movies in the theater this summer than they saw last summer

That last statistic in particular is most important, as it means a possible increase in revenue for the movie industry this summer, after a weak year for movies in 2014 gave way to a much stronger showing in 2015, led by the aforementioned return of Star Wars to the big screen. The huge box-office success for Star Wars 7 showed that despite the protests of some Internet commenters, female-led movies can be every bit as profitable as their male-led counterparts. With Paul Feig having already proven the same for female-led comedies with BridesmaidsThe Heatand Spy, that bodes well for his newest film.

Of course, there is still the possibility that Ghostbusters will not live up to such expectations. In comparing it to the competition, though, it’s hard not to think that Ghostbusters stands a strong chance of being the biggest comedy of the summer.

Ghostbusters will open in U.S. theaters on July 15, 2016.
