Movies At The Big Game
Way To Blue is a global communications agency, specialising in Social and PR for the Entertainment Industry. Following the Superbowl yesterday, we analysed all English-language Twitter conversations about the film trailers created for the ad breaks this year, to see which trailers had the biggest impact and influence. Insights:
- All trailers generated a huge amount of Twitter conversation. With around two tweets a second throughout Big Game Day
- Fast and Furious 6 generated the highest level of social buzz and the highest increase of people stating they intended to watch the film after seeing the trailer.
- All trailers lead to an increase in people saying they wanted to watch the movies and an increase in the volume of Facebook fans on the official film pages. Many of the ads included Twitter hashtags. Fast and Furious 6 and Iron Man 3 ads included a Facebook call to action.
