Jennifer Lawrence’s stock is at an all-time high, if Fandango’s year-end audience survey is any indication.

The star’s “Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" won’t hit movie theaters until November, but the film is the most anticipated title of 2014, based on Fandango’s survey of “several thousand” film fans last weekend, the online ticket seller said.

Lawrence already burned up the box office this year with “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the second installment in the franchise based on the Suzanne Collins novels, which has grossed about $391 million so far in the U.S. and Canada. Lawrence also co-stars in David O. Russell’s current critical darling, the disco-era romp “American Hustle,” which has grossed more than $60 million after two weekends in wide release.

Other highly anticipated sequels include “The Hobbit: There and Back Again,” “X Men: Days of Future Past” (which co-stars Lawrence) and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The top-five list closes with its only non-sequel, another futuristic young-adult entry, “Divergent.”

Lawrence topped another Fandango survey ranking as the “Sexiest Woman in the Movies, 2014,” with additional roles in the new year including “X Men: Days of Future Past” and the Depression-era drama “Serena.”
