The idea is that the more sought is the film, the more successful. According to Google, “if a movie has more than 250,000 like another film, the premiere with more queries has a chance to perform up to $ 4.3 million better during the opening weekend.”

According to the company, people consult an average of 13 sources of information before deciding which to watch. However, the 48% decide which film will see the day when buying the ticket, so Google suggests that marketing managers must continue to promote the film after the screening.
