When it comes to social media, it’s good to be bad. While Ghostbusters is getting ready to arrive in theaters and Star Trek is on the horizon, Suicide Squad is still dominating the social media conversation.
ComScore’s PreAct measures, a tracking service which studies digital communication in relation to current-or-upcoming films, has calculated that Squad has over 59,000 conversation mentions for the week of July 4-1oth.
As previously reported, the DC property is currently gathering more online attention than any other 2016 film, and that includes Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Star Trek Beyond, The Secret Life of Pets and Ghostbusters, to merely name a few.
Suicide Squad stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, with Raymond Olubawale as King Shark, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Adam Beach as Slipknot. Directed by David Ayer.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th, 2016. Are you looking forward to the release of the film? Let us know in the comments!
