This year’s movie-themed Halloween costumes

Got your Halloween costume ready yet? Fandango.com took a survey of more than 1000 moviegoers, asking them if they were planning to dress up as a movie character this year — and as you might have guessed, “The Avengers” ranked very high. Here are the top ten, for men and women:
Men:
1. Thor (The Avengers)
2. Iron Man (The Avengers)
3. Captain America (The Avengers)
4. Hulk (The Avengers)
5. Batman (The Dark Knight Rises)
6. James Bond (Skyfall)
7. Ted the Raunchy Teddy Bear (Ted)
8. Gandalf (The Hobbit)
9. Magic Mike (Magic Mike)
10. Wreck-It-Ralph (Wreck-It Ralph)
Women:
1. Catwoman (The Dark Knight Rises)
2. Katniss (The Hunger Games)
3. Snow White (Snow White and the Huntsman)
4. Queen Ravenna (Snow White and the Huntsman)
5. Black Widow (The Avengers)
6. Red-Eyed Bella the Vampire (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2)
7. Effie Trinket (The Hunger Games)
8. Selene (Underworld: Awakening)
9. Merida (Brave)
10. Alice (Resident Evil: Retribution)
Hmm. We’ll see if anyone dressed as Magic Mike shows up at my front door. (That would certainly enliven Halloween, wouldn’t it?) And — really? — grown-up women would rank dressing as Kristen Stewart in Snow White higher than Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron), who looked so very much snazzier? (And — really? enough people saw “Underworld: Awakening” to want to duplicate a costume?) If anyone’s going to a costume party this weekend, let me know who you spot.
