Voting for Round 1 of MTV’s Movie Brawl is officially open until January 16 at Over 200,000 fans submitted their nominees for most anticipated movie of 2014 through Twitter using hashtag #MTVMovieBrawl, causing the topic to also trend worldwide. Among the 32 nominees for Round 1, film adaptations of popular and highly-anticipated Young Adult novels are making quite an impressive showing.

The popular Young Adult novel nominees include: Suzanne Collins’ ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1’ (the Jennifer Lawrence vehicle ironically enough is up against ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ in which Jennifer Lawrence makes a cameo appearance), Richelle Mead’s ‘Vampire Academy’ (vs. ‘Robocop’), James Dashner’s ‘The Maze Runner’ (vs. ‘Hercules’), John Green’s ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ (vs. ‘Need for Speed’), and Veronica Roth’s ‘Divergent’ (vs. ‘Jupiter Ascending’). That makes 5 showings out of 32, even if you don’t count J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy series ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ (vs. ‘Tracers’). Whether purposefully done or the result of sheer luck, MTV has not yet bracketed any of the Young Adult contenders against each other in Round 1.

The full schedule of voting deadlines is as follows:

January 13: Round 1: Fight!
January 16: Sweet Sixteen
January 20: Elite Eight
January 23: Final Four
January 27: Final Two
January 30: The Winner... Revealed!

MTV asks fans to vote as often as they like and to tweet their votes with the hashtag #MTVMovieBrawl. Check out the rest of the competition here.
