Suicide Squad and Twitter: Movie Dominates Conversation

If you look at the upcoming movies over the summer, it looks like Suicide Squad reigns supreme! That isn’t all that surprising considering that Suicide Squad and Twitter have had a fairly close relationship. Just think…a little while back, Jared Leto shared a special Joker emoji and the hashtag #JokerWasHere. Of course, people couldn’t get enough of that and Suicide Squad and Twitter made news by earning over one million tweets in a period between March 1st and May 26th! Of course, those exceptional trailers probably helped; one can’t ever go wrong with “Bohemian Rhapsody” or “Ball-Room Blitz,” right?

According to the source the next, most tweeted about movies are, Finding Dory (June 17) with 869,000 tweets; Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters (July 22) with 565,000 tweets; the romance Me Before You with 329,000 tweets; the sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (June 3) with 251,000 tweets; and the fantasy video-game adaptation Warcraft (June 10) with 244,000 tweets.” It also should be noted that Captain America: Civil War earned 10 million tweets while X-Men Apocalypse had 1.8 million tweets. On the bright side of things, at least we get a ton of bombastic summer movies to look forward to! Oh, and Dan Aykroyd thought the new Ghostbusters was good. Probably helps since he is listed as an executive producer!

Suicide Squad is out on August 5th, 2016 and stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, and Cara Delevingne.
