Comic-Con 2016: Data Shows Which Films Got the Biggest Buzz

According to the numbers, ensemble power catapulted DC’s “Suicide Squad” and HBO’s “Game of Thrones” past the usual assortment of films and television shows that stormed Comic-Con this year.

Each genre property invaded the San Diego Convention Center’s famed Hall H with its respective cast in tow, as names like Will Smith, Sophie Turner and Margot Robbie graced the stage to preview things to come on the big and small screen.

Other films that sparked included “Star Trek Beyond,” which kicked off the convention with a grand outdoor IMAX premiere punctuated with a dazzling light show and fireworks display; “Wonder Woman,” which debuted an exciting first trailer for screaming fans; and “Justice League,” presenting the full superhero lineup and a sizzle reel unique to the event.

On the television side, other series that drew online attention included USA’s “Mr. Robot,” currently in its second season; “American Gods,” as Starz debuted a trailer for the upcoming show based on Neil Gaiman’s bestseller; and Marvel’s “Luke Cage,” catching the most fire in the comic book clutter.
