Movie trailers are huge right now. It’s to the point where people will go on YouTube to see how many views a certain trailer has to determine how well the movie might do at the box office. In addition to that, we also see a number of ‘teaser trailers,’ which are basically like the mini-size Blizzard from Dairy Queen. NO ONE WANTS JUST A TABLESPOON OF ICE CREAM!
What were we talking about again? Oh yeah..trailers. The first trailer for Captain America: Civil War hit the internets last week, and it pretty much shocked the world with its awesomeness.
And thanks to a press release from Marvel, we can now say it was a record-breaking trailer. They announced it managed to grab 61 million global views in its first 24 hours. It almost doubled the previous record of 34 million views for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Even Adele is sitting back thinking, “Damn. That’s impressive.”
Just so we’re clear here, these records are only for Marvel movies. The trailer for Star Wars 7 pretty much crushed everyone with its 112 million views in one day.
You can watch the Captain America trailer below. The film hits theaters May 6, 2016. You know, if anyone cares about watching full movies anymore.
