We're excited to debut our new Fanticipation buzz indicator, which gives movie-goers a snapshot of the most anticipated films each weekend according to our fans. Measuring online and mobile traffic, social media engagement and advance ticket sales for current and new releases, Fanticipation offers a unique look at the movies fans are most excited about.
Along with being shared on this site, Fanticipation will also be featured in our chief correspondent Dave Karger's brand-new original video series, Weekend Ticket.
Before we get into more about the show, take a look below at this week's Fanticipation movie picks:
With SXSW getting under way tomorrow, we're getting set to debut Weekend Ticket. The show will help consumers find the perfect movies to watch over the weekend and also feature celebrity interviews.
The first episode will feature interviews with Steve Carell and the cast of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and will start filming this weekend at SXSW. The show premieres on March 14 on Fandango.
Dave will also moderate an official SXSW kickoff panel, An Insider's Preview to the SXSW Film Festival, on March 8, to help attendees with their movie-going decisions at the festival.
Fandango will also host the Fandango Film Lounge from March 8 through March 12 at the Intercontinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel where festivalgoers can take a break, enjoy food and drink, check email, and watch movie trailers and Fandango's original videos. If you're in town, stop by!
