Two separate stories about tracking buzz and anticipation for some upcoming movies:
First, Buzzfeed and Variety are working together to track social media buzz and headlines around the movies nominated for Golden Globes.
The BuzzFeed MovieTracker (methodology below) measured online interest for Dec. 15-29 and found “Wolf of Wall Street” racked up most page views for best picture drama, with Leonardo DiCaprio on top as lead actor.
More generally, the LAT reports on research from Fizziology about buzz for movies coming later in 2014 to see who’s getting strong word-of-mouth lifts.
Research firm Fizziology used social media data to rank the 10 most buzzed-about movies for the upcoming year and gave the top spot to “Divergent,” Summit Entertainment’s futuristic action-adventure coming out in March. The movie is getting “Hunger Games”-like buzz from young female fans of the young-adult book by Veronica Roth.
