It’s 2017, and records like “Most-Tweeted Movie of the Year” exist. Social media plays a huge role in how successful a film might be. When it becomes popular online, it also becomes popular at the box office, which means $$$$$$$$.
‘Wonder Woman‘ has already smashed several records at the box office, including the record for biggest-ever opening weekend for a film directed by a woman. It’s already made over $220 million globally, and that number will continue to go up this weekend as it will dominate once again.
But it’s not just breaking records at the box office. It’s breaking records online, as well. It is the most tweeted-about movie of 2017 in the United States.
It’s collected more than 2.19 million tweets so far this year, which beats out La La Land and Beauty and the Beast. In addition to that record, the Wonder Woman character (played by Gal Gadot) is also the most tweeted-about film character of the year. Batman is in second place, and Chris Pine’s character, Steve Trevor, sits in third place.
It is all good news for Wonder Woman. Great reviews, fans love it, it’s already made back its budget, and it’s breaking all kinds of records.
What else could you possibly ask for? An Oscar? Maybe we should ask Vin Diesel about that…
