When it comes to social network metrics, we expect to see fan-driven genre franchises frequently posting strong results in Facebook and Twitter analyses. It comes as no surprise when Iron Man 3Man of Steel, or Star Trek Into Darkness rest among the top ten tweeted-about films (as they currently do for this week). But two other May releases are making waves themselves.

 

The Hangover Part III has been lighting up Facebook all week--and, really, ever since its two trailers debuted. Dating back to April 19, the trilogy-closer has added a massive 1.017 million fans (for a total of 23.6 million and counting). That's 3.4 times as many new fans added as any other movie during the same time frame--an impressive statistic when considering the film was *losing* fans nearly two months ago. Once the teaser trailer debuted in early March, things started turning around.

 

The more surprising turn of events, however, has been the quickly ascending popularity of The Great Gatsby... (more)

We discussed this one the last BO podcast and I think that WB might very well come out on top at the end of the summer. If gatsby performs to at least 90-100, it's gonna help immensely.

And so it goes, and so it goes. And the book says, "We may be through with the past, but the past ain't through with us."

With it's budget (120M), it needs to perform very well overseas for Warner Bros to actually win something off of it.


"You can have all the faith in spirits and the afterlife, heaven and hell, but when it comes to this world, don't be an idiot, because you can tell that you put your faith in God to get through the day, but when it comes time to cross the road, I know you look both ways."

 

"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each prayer accepted, and each wish resigned."

I'm talking about strictly BO numbers. Revenue's a different story.

If Jason still haunts you, you're not alone.
