Facebook Movie Watch

Talking with some friends about the demographics of comic book fans on Facebook, I got to wondering how pages react to events like movie releases.  Thor has been released  globally, but opens this Friday here in the US.  Will the “likes” for the film page increase?  Can you figure out the buzz of a movie or character by this?  For this summer, we’ll track the various Facebook pages related to this summer’s comic book movies and see if they get a “release” bump or what other factors might lead to an increase of decrease of likes.  Where there’s multiple pages, we took the top five when we could.

Thor – Opens in the United States May 6, already released globally.
