Spider-Man snaps away Endgame’s trailer record

Jeremiah Booth, In-depth Writer

On Monday, Aug. 23, the teaser trailer for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” set a record for the most global views in the first 24 hours with 355.5 million views, despite leaking on Twitter a day early. 

The record was previously held by the trailer for “Avengers: Endgame,” which saw 289 million views when it was released in December 2018. According to Sony Pictures, the trailer also earned the most mentions for any movie preview over the first 24 hours with 4.5 million mentions globally.  

This puts the movie in a position to potentially set new records upon its release during a lackluster box office year caused by the pandemic. “No Way Home” is set to release on Dec. 17, with no public plans to release it on any streaming services.
