Twitter’s 10 Most Trending Movies of 2016

Twitter has been one of the most influential social media sites in the world as being on its Trending List is such a very big deal in defining one's popularity in the society. And as the year 2016 nearly comes to its end, Twitter has listed the top 10 trending movies that rocked the big screens all over the world and on the internet.

Number 10 on the list is "Ghostbusters" starred by Mellisa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth and Kate McKinnon. The film, which was derived from the previous versions of Ghostbusters, has gained an A+ for the movie fanatics and has even grossed $229 million worldwide.

Disney's Zootopia landed a ninth place on the list and has received positive feedbacks from both the viewers and the critics. Number 8 is Leonardo Dicaprio's "The Revenant" which made him achieve an Oscar trophy this year.

At Number 7 is Disney Pixar's "Finding Dory. The film which was released in theaters in June 2016 recorded a gross income of $1 billion in the entire world, making it the very first Pixar movie to cross the $1 billion mark ever since the release of Toy Story 3 in 2010. "Finding Dory" was followed by "Captain America: Civil War" at number 6 which has received an overwhelming feedback on the internet.

Number 5 on the list is the phenomenal "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice". The said American superhero film featured two of the most sought-after superheroes from the DC comics - Batman and Superman. It was directed by Zack Snyder and was distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Number 4 is "Harry Potter" while on the third spot is "Deadpool" whose popularity was increased because of Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds who amplified the promotion of the movie through his personal Twitter account. Number 2 on the list is "Suicide Squad" which has been already sensationalized even before the film was released because of one of its character, Harley Quinn.

While the movie has not yet hit the big screens, "Star Wars: Rogue One" topped this year's trending movies list of Twitter. According to Cinameblend, being on the trending list does not necessarily mean that the movie was great. It can be a trend due to its lapses and was a subject of the judgment of critics.

While the movie has not yet hit the big screens, "Star Wars: Rogue One" topped this year's trending movies list of Twitter. On the other hand, Comic Book reports that "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones" are the second and top trending TV shows/series of the year, respectively.
