Avengers: Infinity War Makes History as Most-Viewed Trailer in 24 Hours

Remember that little Avengers: Infinity War trailer we shared with you? You know, the one that finally gave fans a glimpse of what the Russo Brothers and just about every star from every Marvel film has been cooking up for the past year? Yeah, that’s the one—you probably watched it considering it’s obliterated all previous records for the most watched trailer in history.

Marvel has it that the Infinity War trailer nabbed 230 million views in the first 24 hours, rocketing it past Andy Muschietti’s It, which was your previous champion with 197 million views. Before It, the Fate of the Furious had held the title, with 139 million views. Infinity War, with Thanos and the Hulkbuster and a bearded Captain America has absolutely, and unsurprisingly, pummeled the competition.

We’ve got a ways to go until the film’s May 2, 2018 premiere, so you can bet there will be a lot more Infinity War teasers, trailers and TV spots to parse until then. Written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the duo who penned the excellent Captain America: Civil War, and directed by the Russo brothers, Infinity War sees Thanos (Josh Brolin) finally taking center stage on his quest for the Infinity Stones. Just about everybody is here, including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Don Cheadle, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Rudd, and Tom Hiddleston.
