Avengers: Endgame Trailer Is Already Setting Major Records

Half the universe may have been snapped away in the last movie, but Marvel nonetheless attracted millions eyes when the studio debuted the Avengers: Endgame trailer on Friday. The hotly-anticipated sequel has already Hulk-smashed the record for 24-hour trailer views, as previously set by Avengers: Infinity War.

Thats according to Marvel themselves, who tweeted a thank-you to fans for sending Endgame trailer views skyrocketing to 289 million views across various platforms in one days time. For contrast, the initial teaser for Avengers: Infinity War dialed up 230 million views, while the recent teaser for Disneys live-action (ish) adaptation of The Lion King raked in an impressive 224.6 million.

Fans had speculated for months when Marvel might release the new Avengers trailer, which also formally revealed the Endgame subtitle after months of teasing. This past week also saw Marvel releasing the second trailer for Captain Marvel. Additional rumors have suggested that the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel Spider-Man: Far From Home may also debut in the coming days, despite its story taking place after the hush-hush events of Avengers: Endgame. The new Avengers film is expected to release worldwide on April 26, 2019 – an announcement also made during the record-setting promo.

Scarlett Johansson in Home Alone 3 (1997)

Everyone knows that the older siblings in the Home Alone franchise are never exactly nice. But the young protagonist Alex should be grateful that his older sister Molly (Johansson) didnt have any of Black Widows combat training.Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (Right).

Robert Downey Jr. has played many many types in his long career but perhaps none quite so far removed from Tony Stark as the foppish 17th-century medical student Robert Merivel. Then again, Merivel is quite the ladies man so perhaps hes not that far off from Tony after all.Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (Right).

Almost every British actor has an embarrassing costume drama buried deep in their C.V., but most dont feature such magnificent hats. Bettany played the petulant, hapless, awful Prince William of Orange, opposite Sean Bean, in the popular Sharpe series for ITV.Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (Right).

Youd be hard-pressed to find a Jackson role that can be described as “adorable” (though this 70s Krystal commercial comes close), but at least this role shows that Jacksons hat game has always been on point.

Taylor-Johnson played the scrappy, young cockney sidekick Charlie Chaplin (yes, that Charlie Chaplin) to Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan in this 2003 sequel. Young Chaplin may have had sticky fingers, but he also had a heart of gold.Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (Right).

Before she made her own mark on Hollywood with Martha Marcy May Marlene, Olsen paid her dues playing herself in her older sisters direct-to-video series.

Yes Spader is technically the bad guy in this late 80s love story of a boy and his mannequin, but hes a buffoonish one. Weirdly, this movie was filmed after Spader made a huge splash in Pretty in Pink.Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (Right).

The wig work is strong with this one. Hemsworth played King Arthur in flashbacks for the Canadian/Australian fantasy television series about a Queen Guinevere–like character living in modern times. His part is mostly limited to walking around looking amazing in those brunette waves.Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (Right).
