50 Shades Of Grey led all tracked films last week in Facebook like increases for the second week in a row. Yes it was a relatively slow week but 50 Shades' repeat on top of the list was impressive all the same. Yes the buzz surrounding this second trailer might have been lower in general than the first but lets not lose sight of the fact that it has one of the highest like totals for a film prior to release, book adaptation or otherwise. The Hunger Games for instance had less than 1 million likes this same distance from release.
Jurassic World started to show signs of life yesterday after a teaser to its first trailer made its way online. With the full trailer expected online on Thursday I wouldn't be surprised to see this leading the list this time next week. Well, that is if it can make it past Star Wars: The Force Awakens which also unveils its trailer on Thanksgiving day.
The Divergent Series: Insurgent released its first trailer back on November 12th but really has not made much waves at all on Facebook. It has seen a rise of just over 50k likes in the two weeks since then which is pretty paltry, especially for a sequel to such a well received film. Someone over at Summit better had pay some more attention to engaging Facebook audiences because its lagging to say the least.
