The biggest "breakout" stars of 2012 will be Josh Hutcherson and 11-year-old Mackenzie Foy, if the users of Fandango have anything to say about it.

The online ticketing service surveyed 1,000 visitors to its site, and Hutcherson, who will appear in "The Hunger Games" this year, was tops among males while Foy, of the upcoming "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2," beat out all other females.

On Thursday, Fandango will issue the results of its two polls – a Top 5 for men and another for women (or girls, as is the case with Foy). Expect the dominant themes of the two lists to be "Hunger Games" and "Battleship," as well as last year's "Immortals."

Rounding out the Top 5 among men (with their most anticipated 2012 releases in parentheses) are: Liam Hemsworth ("Hunger Games," "The Expendables 2"), Luke Evans ("The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," "The Raven"), Henry Cavill ("Man of Steel") and Taylor Kitsch ("Battleship," "John Carter").

Cavill and Evans were both in "Immortals," a Relativity release that has earned $207.6 million worldwide to date.

Rounding out the Top 5 among women are: Juno Temple ("The Dark Knight Rises"), Brooklyn Decker ("Battleship"), Gina Carano ("Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters," set for release in 2013) and Lily Collins ("Mirror Mirror").

Fandango recently announced its most productive year in its 11-year-history, including a high of 25 million unique visitors to its Web site in a single month and a cumulative total of 21 million downloads of its mobile and tablet apps.
