The Fate of the Furious is just a few days away from hitting theaters and it appears fan discussions on the film are dominating social media. Variety reports that according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service, the eighth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise topped social media buzz with 80,000 new conversations.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming followed with 26,000 and 21,000 new conversations, respectively.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi earned 20,000 new conversations last week, possibly due to the news that Todd Fisher and Billie Lourd granted Lucasfilm the right to include any unused footage of the late Carrie Fisher in Episode IX.
