Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Breaks Record For Number Of Views In 24 Hours

When Marvel Entertainment finally let the Avengers: Infinity War trailer out of its proverbial cage, fans barely knew how to contain their enthusiasm. With first-ever glimpses at Captain America's luscious beard, Spider-Man's decked-out new suit, and members of opposite ends of the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally meeting up, the footage practically begged to be watched more than once to fully appreciate all its details. As it turns out, all those multiple viewings have resulted in the breaking of an important record. 

Marvel Studios announced on Thursday that fans watched the Avengers: Infinity War trailer 230 million times in the first 24 hours, thus setting a new record for the most-watched trailer in a single day. (The total includes views on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media channels.) Director Andy Muschietti's adaptation of It previously held that accolade, earning it when the film's first trailer pulled in 197 million views in 24 hours earlier this year.
