      Leveraging the power of Twitter and Facebook, a Canadian production company raised $42,000 for their film.

    • Avatar
      While smaller films have used social media to spread the word guerrilla-style, no other major blockbuster has employed a full-on social web marketing assault quite like Avatar. 
      The results in its case were a $232 million opening weekend, a total of one billion dollars in revenue by year’s end, and the rank of #2 highest grossing film of all time. 
      What kind of Twitter action did they have going on?
    • Avatar
      Followers. Tweets. Lists. Oh my!!!
    • The World Responds...
      The Famous
      Actor Simon Pegg…
      Just left the party. The movie is a game changer. Still buzzing. Tweet over.
      First Showing’s Alex Billington…
      James Cameron is a freakin’ genius! I can’t say much but wow, I loved it. Avatar was phenomenal, pretty much blew me away.
      Edward Douglas’ Coming Soon…
      I’ll take my chances with Fox legal…. Avatar was amazing, I loved it!
      Film School Rejects…
      RT @rejects: I’m not supposed to talk about Avatar… That said, it was a spectacular experience. Like nothing I’ve seen before.
      @petershall: “The AVATAR buzz is an understatement. That movie was unbelievable.”
      @chasewhale: “Just finished AVATAR. Special effects were top notch. The movie ran a little long for my likings but I liked it!”
      @MikePereira21: Was blown away by Avatar! For 150 minutes, I was a kid again. Thank you James Cameron! BTW, the groundbreaking 3D was mindblowing.”
      @markwalters74: “Just saw AVATAR. Not allowed to talk about it yet. Not allowed to say how it’s an amazing visual feast, or that Jimmy C’s still got the gift.”
      @dmann11: “Holy effing crap!!! Avatar was FREAKING AWESOME KICK ASS SWEET!!!!!”
      @TheGate: “For the record ‘Avatar’ was worth the $400 million, and no it is not even remotely “vomit inducing”.
    • Twitter Box Office Update
      The ratio is the number of tweets per $1 million of Friday Box Office gross. A film with 1,000 tweets and a $10 million Friday would therefore have a ratio of 100. In general, films that appeal to very young or older audiences have lower ratios since those audiences are not big users of Twitter. By comparison, films that appeal to younger audiences (18-35) have much higher ratios since those audiences are much more active users of Twitter.
    • Twitter Reviews Sink Box Office Weekends
      Time Magazine thinks Twitter might be to blame claiming that “Brüno could be the first movie defeated by the Twitter effect.”
      You may have seen a few tweets from moviegoers sharing their colorful movie watching experiences. Those very tweets may have resulted in a drastic decline in sales, causing the movie to fall as much as $20 million short of some expectations.
      According to box office results, Brüno, pulled in $30.4 million, saw almost a 40% drop in ticket sales from Friday to Saturday, and lost even more steam going into Sunday. 
    • Bruno
      All is not lost for Brüno. In the first week of domestic DVD release it makes $6,536,957
    • Conclusion
