Wonder Woman has earned the distinction of being the most-tweeted about blockbuster film during the summer of 2017. Starring Gal Gadot in the titular role after her stunning debut as the character in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, Wonder Woman reached several major milestones after its $100 million opening weekend stateside in June, including grosses of more than $400 million each at the domestic and international box offices.
The film’s $400 million tally was also enough to make Wonder Woman the top-grossing domestic film of the summer, which upon its release was the beneficiary of rave reviews from critics and a stellar “fresh” rating of 92 percent from Rotten Tomatoes.
And while positive critical buzz about a film never hurts its prospects going in, clearly there was another force at work with the chatter about Wonder Woman on social media, which could at least in part explain its box office numbers
According to a post by Twitter Data, Wonder Woman came in at No. 1 as the most-tweeted about summer blockbuster film. Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic Dunkirk came in at No. 2 on the list, followed by the Marvel Cinematic Universe Smash Spider-Man: Homecoming at No. 3.
Rounding out the top 5 was the upcoming DC Extended Universe superhero extravaganza Justice League at No. 4, and the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me at No. 5. Twitter Data did not supply specific statistics about the most-tweeted film, just the ranking.
