Suicide Squad is the most buzzed about movie on Social Media.
Following the release of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad
director, David Ayer, filmed reshoots for the movie in order to make the movie more "fun" and less depressing. And now Suicide Squad
is the most talked about movie on social media beating Star Wars: Rogue One.
According to Deadline, Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad
is the biggest movie of the summer. The movie has generated over 66,000 different social media conversations according to ComScore's PreAct and beating other highly anticipated movies such as Disney’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
and the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
In addition, Suicide Squad's
total conversations are totaling 1.3 million beating Star Trek Beyond, Ghostbusters, Independence Day 2,
and The Legend of Tarzan.
This news should not be that surprising. The release dates for Rogue One
and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
do not hit theaters for another several months. Meanwhile, Warner Bros.' is ramping up the amount of commercials, press releases, and actors are starting to hit the town marketing the movie revealing Jared Leto method acting stories. So, it's natural that Suicide Squad
to become the most talked about movie right now. However, when you look at Ghostbusters
social media reach, it's a little worrisome for studio executives. Melissa McCarthy may not be "afraid of no ghost", but I guarantee studio executives are afraid of a box office flop.
