So, Did “Star Wars” break the “Avengers” record for most viewed trailer?

Well I asked the question so I should probably answer it. The teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has had the biggest first week of any debut trailer on Youtube in 2014. THR reported that the trailer for J.J. Abrams’ addition to the saga trounced the teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron, hitting 58.2 million views since its release on 28th November.

Age of Ultron previously held the title with 50.6 million views in its first week. Jurassic World also came close, with a total of 53.9 since it was released 3 days before The Force Awakens.:

The data was provided by Zerf, a technology firm that had predicted that the Star Wars teaser was on track to become the most viewed trailer of all time.

Kudos to the Star Wars, and with a new trailer announced to be on its way – potentially with the release of Age of Ultron – let’s hope the film keeps up momentum for its release this time next year.
