Can you feel the Fanticipation?


The Angry Birds Movie flies to the top of Fandango’s movie buzz indicator

We’re only one day out now from wide release across the United States, and you want to know who’s really excited about The Angry Birds Movie?

According to Fandango, America’s top digital destination for moviegoers, a pretty massive flock of jazzed up fans, that’s who. The film has flown straight to the top of Fandango’s popular Fanticipation indicator, which provides statistical insight into movies fans are planning to see on a given weekend. Scores are calculated via an algorithm of Fandango’s advance ticket sales, website and mobile traffic, and social media engagement. The Angry Birds Movie has squawked its way to an 87, on a scale from 1 to 100. 

“Family audiences are eager to check out The Angry Birds Movie this weekend,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis, “and it appears the game’s immense popularity may help it slingshot past Captain America: Civil War at the weekend box office.” 

Woah! We certainly hope that will be the case, as much as we admire the good captain. In any case, Fandango Movieclips is now offering “The Ultimate Trailer for The Angry Birds Movie” here. Check it out... and go see the movie this weekend!
