If there’s one thing we love to do here at Fan Fest it’s peruse Twitter for the all the best and brightest tweets about our latest pop culture obsessions. Whether its The Walking Dead, movie trailers, reviews, or the latest box-office hit, we are all about that Twitter life. Well, as the year comes to an end, Twitter has started to release their 2018 Most-Tweeted lists and today we’re breaking down the top tweeted about movies. To see the list of top tweeted TV + Streaming TV shows head here. Take your guess as to which movie landed at #1 then check out the lists below!
The Most Tweeted About Movies:
10. The Shape of Water
As the winner of Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards, it makes sense that Guillermo Del Toro’s aquatic romance would make the top 10.
9. Crazy Rich Asians
Crazy Rich Asians completely dominated the Box Office when it was released back in August, and with a charming and diverse cast and its heartwarming story, the film became a social media sensation as well.
8. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Literally, everyone had feelings about that devastating Brachiosaurus death and social media was the best place to vent. To see our favorite tweets about the film, check out our Twitter roundup here!
7. A Wrinkle in Time
While the film may not have performed at the Box Office as well as Disney probably hoped, with Oprah, Reese, and Mindy at the helm, A Wrinkle in Time got a lot of love on Twitter.
6. Love, Simon
If you haven’t gotten the chance to see Love, Simon yet, do yourself a favor and get to it. The touching film shed a light on the struggles that so many young adults can be silently facing and it did so with heart, humor, and really great music.
5. Deadpool 2
We have a feeling that Ryan Reynolds would probably want Deadpool 2 to be a bit higher on the list, but the movie was a helluva lot of fun and that’s all that matters in our book.
4. Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The Last Jedi marked Carrie’s Fisher’s final Star Wars film, so it’s no surprise that it’s this high on the list.
3. The Incredibles 2
Anyone who was old enough to remember seeing The Incredibles the first time around is now most likely a regular Twitter user, so when the superhero sequel flew into theaters this year, people had a lot to say and a place to say it.
2. The Avengers: Infinity War
Let’s be real…people are still tweeting about this movie.
1. Black Panther
Wakanda Forever! Taking in the number one spot is Marvel’s Black Panther, which became the third-highest-grossing movie of all time in the United States, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar. The film was recently nominated for three Golden Globe Awards, making it the first Marvel Studios movie and first superhero movie to earn a nomination in the Best Motion Picture Drama category.
Did you guess correctly? What movie did you tweet about the most in 2018? Let us know!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
