Have you had a chance to watch the Avengers: Infinity War trailer yet? Judging by the numbers, I’m betting you have and probably more than once. The trailer for Joe and Anthony Russo‘s epic superhero team-up finally debuted yesterday, and in news that should come as a surprise to exactly no one, it’s already racked up an insane amount of views. In fact, enough people have watched the trailer to shatter existing viewership records, landing Infinity War the title of most-viewed trailer of all time. Not too shabby.
According to Marvel, the much-hyped trailer earned 230 million views in its first 24 hours, blowing past the previous champion, Andy Muschietti‘s IT, which earned 197 million views when the first trailer dropped earlier this year. Before that, the title belonged to Fate of the Furious, which earned a single-day tally of 139 million views last year. So yeah, Avengers didn’t just break the record, it Hulk-smashed it.
