Friday Morning Update: Our top performer for all upcoming films over the last week was none other than Ouija as it accounted for 97,673 tweets. The comparison on my mind here is of course Annabelle which had just 59,310 tweets the same week before its release. Of course because Annabelle was such a success it has driven more traffic to Ouija no doubt as thrill-seekers are looking for more screams but however you slice it the numbers it has been posting are massive for a non-franchise film.
Of this upcoming weekend's films The Judge was the cream of the crop as it came in in second place with 80,146 tweets, beating out Dracula Untold (49,338), Addicted (27,523) and Alexander (24,491). For our weekend predictions be sure to check out this week's forecast column.
Two December tentpoles began to flex their muscle on the week in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies and Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb. They are still a long ways away but having them pop up in the top 15 without having a specific trailer release is always good news. The year has not been kind to film in general, especially to the Summer franchise tent poles (I'm looking at you Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Transformers: Age Of Extinction) so studio execs will be praying that the Christmas entries do exceptionally well to backfill.
