When you think of anticipated 2018 movies, the likes of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Avengers: Infinity War and The Incredibles 2 come to mind.

However, none of those topped the social media buzz at the end of 2017 – in fact, the movie the most people are talking about is a little unexpected.

According to data from media measurement firm comScore (via Variety), Maze Runner: The Death Cure was the most-talked about movie in the last week on social media.

The third film in the Maze Runner series sparked more than 53,000 new conversations in the past seven days, bringing it to a total of nearly 600,000 overall.

That may be partly down to the release of a new poster for the movie last week, though its ranking is comfortably ahead of second placed Fifty Shades Freed (37,000 new conversations).

The third most buzzy movie at the end of 2017 was Black Panther (nearly 35,000), ahead of fellow Marvel movie Infinity War (22,000).

The Death Cure has been a while coming since production was halted and its release date was pushed back a year following an on-set injury sustained by star Dylan O'Brien.

The first two movies made a good amount of money at the box office, so it's safe to say this one will prove quite popular too. After all, quite a lot of you are talking about it ahead of its release next month.

Still, Solo and The Incredibles 2 did get a bit of social media buzz, generating 11,000 and 4,000 conversations respectively.
