March Movie Madness Tournament: Which Summer Movie will Rule Them All? (Region 1 - Round Three)

March Movie Madness Tournament: Which Summer Movie will Rule Them All? (Region 1 - Round Three)

Apr 02, 2012

Kentucky? Kansas? You can have them. We’re busy battling through the upcoming Summer blockbuster season to figure out which movie is going to win our March Movie Madness Tournament.

We’re down to the Elite Eight, thanks to your votes. All four No. 1 seeds have survived, but now they’ll face their toughest challenges from some surprising contenders.

This started when we ranked 32 anticipated titles into four Regions, then further ranked those titles into seeds numbering 1 through 8. Each day, a new Region opened to voting. Victors will advance until a champion is crowned on April 20.

Now, it’s up to you. Consider all factors – Quality, Critical Response, Box Office – before picking a movie. Cast your vote, and help us figure out which movies are moving on to compete in the Final Four. Then check back often to see how your favorite movie did.

Region 1 - Round Three

(1) The Dark Knight Rises vs. (4) The Bourne Legacy

Last round, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones put up a valiant effort, but Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, as expected, dominated Men In Black 3 and lives to fight in the semi-finals. But instead of taking on the No. 2 seed Moonrise Kingdom – the latest from Wes Anderson – Nolan’s Batman sequel will face off against the rebooted Bourne franchise … which replaces Matt Damon with newcomer Jeremy Renner. And The Bourne Legacy so thoroughly trounced Kingdom (earning 85% of all votes cast) that I’m starting to believe it has a shot at toppling Dark Knight and moving on to represent Region 1 in the Final Four.
