Twitter Reactions: Suicide Squad Marketing

Suicide Squad is one of the most buzzed about movies of the year. With a massive (and effective) marketing campaign, the film was anticipated to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the summer (two of our predictors had it listed as the summer’s #1 earner).

And then the reviews start rolling in. The best reviews have called the film flawed but fun. The worst just call it a total mess. Suddenly, the Squad’s prospects look a little less sunny. In fact, it’s almost as if Harley Quinn has taken a baseball bat to the film’s financial future.

As marketing and film criticism battle for the hearts of summer moviegoers, where does Suicide Squad stand? Will it triumph on the wings of marketing or fall at the feet of quality? We turned to Twitter for some insights.
