google_logoGoogle have pulled together data from the 1.2 trillion searches that took place during 2012. They have information regarding the most searched for terms worldwide (number one was Whitney Houston) and per country. They have also broken the information down into different genres.

Of interest to us are the most searched films during the year.

Here is the Top 10:

  1. The Hunger Games
  2. Skyfall
  3. Prometheus
  4. The Avengers
  5. Magic Mike
  6. John Carter
  7. Ek Tha Tiger
  8. Paranormal Activity 4
  9. Taken 2
  10. Dark Shadows

The top 4 films are to be expected, but it does surprise me that John Carter was ranked so high. While I loved the film, it was a commercial flop (poor marketing is mostly to blame) so for it to be at the number 6 spot does mean a lot of people were trying to find out about it.

Also where is The Dark Knight Rises?

What are your thoughts on the list? Any surprises?
