‘Suicide Squad' Is Most Discussed Topic On Social Media: Says ComScore! [VIDEO]
WB's upcoming villain movie "Suicide Squad" is the most talked about title in the social media! ComScore PreAct measures the registered social conversations (positive or negative) and gets stimulating 59,000 conversations!
Sitting beside 'Suicide Squad' in the hotspot are similarly anticipated movies, "Star Trek" and "Ghostbusters".
The movie was also claimed to have toppled over the frequently dubbed anticipated movie in 2016, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" from its top position in ComScore's previous ranking in June.
The movie is seen to have stayed in this position ever since.
"Suicide Squad" is an upcoming film ripped from the DC Comics, slated for release in the U.S. on August 5, 2016.
Its plotline is believed to joggle between the philosophy of "inverted morality" and the "quest for redemption (with a twist)", as it is known to rather favor the side of the antiheroes Deadshot, Joker, Harley Quinn, Boomerang and a whole bunch of popular DC villains.
In a more likely thematic news, social media experts are also noticing the sharp shift among netizens and moviegoers' attention towards "female center-staging" as made evident by Harley Quinn in "Suicide Squad", Sophie in "BFG", Miss Peregrine in "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children", and a long list of titles, Revelist reported.
Without overstating it and with the polls in mind, it would be very safe to conclude that "Suicide Squad" is going to be the next big thing in Hollywood history. As social users would put it, a lot of issues can be fished out of the movie, but the most prevalent one is the issue of the "pursuit of justice through unusual means".
Let alone it as a directorial brainchild by David Ayer's unusual and cruel approach, there isn't any reason the movie won't be hitting the given ComScore mark, Yahoo reported.
