Which Underdog Movie Could Be This Summer's Sleeper Hit?

Illustration for article titled Which Underdog Movie Could Be This Summers Sleeper Hit?

Every summer, there's at least one smaller movie that breaks out of the pack. A film that's not based on a huge comic book or toy franchise, with a budget under $100 million. Even though summer is supposed to belong to the big superhero and toy movies, there's always at least one upstart that surprises everybody. A Moon or a District 9, say. Or a Super-8.

So which movie will pull it off this year? There are over 30 genre films coming out this summer, and at least half of them aren't based on any existing IP. Will the larger than usual number of movies make it harder for any one smaller film to break out — or increase the chances of it happening? You decide!


Vote below. Oh, and we weren't sure whether to include the two Tim Burton films, Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. You should only vote for either of those if you think it's an underdog.
