IMDb Releases Their Top 10 Movies of 2016: Which Ones Made the Cut?
The hugely popular IMDb, the top destination for movie and TV data, released their list of the top 10 movies of 2016, which is based entirely on page views to each of the movies’ pages.
These 10 movies were consistently the most popular with IMDb users:
1. Suicide Squad
2. Captain America: Civil War
3. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
5. X-Men: Apocalypse
6. The Jungle Book
7. The Magnificent Seven
10. The Legend of Tarzan
“Movies adapted from comic books were the big winners in 2016,” said Keith Simanton, IMDb’s Senior Film Editor. “The top 5 slots on IMDb’s Top 10 Movies of 2016 list were films that sprang from comic books.”
Simanton added, “Buzz for Suicide Squad, IMDb’s #1 movie of 2016, began a year earlier when the film’s Comic-Con trailer became one of IMDb’s most viewed trailers in 2015. Anticipation continued through the year with each successive online trailer release. Suicide Squad certainly wasn’t hurt by the fact that Margot Robbie, IMDb’s #1 star of 2016, was one of the leads, the crazy-like-a-fox Harley Quinn.”
