Call of Duty and X-Men Top YouTube Trailers Leaderboard

/ Jul 30, 2014

Before the game, before the series, before the film, there’s always some kind of preview to entice viewers into tuning in at a later date. These trailers (if done right) represent entertainment in and of themselves. Some gain plenty of traction, as represented in the YouTube Trailers Leaderboard. Taking into account video content uploaded between April 1 and June 30 of this year, the top ten most viewed trailers list accounts for a total of 98 million views and 160 minutes of watch time.

Based on the statistics gathered from these rankings, it seems that people tend to stick around long enough to get the gist of plot, on average clicking away 74% of the way into the trailer…all of which seem to be getting longer. Each one listed tops one and half minutes.

Furthermore, it seems like gaming trailers are on the up. Topping the list, the “Official Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Reveal” Trailer garnered almost 21 million views as of June 30, followed not far beyond by the announcement trailer for “Who’s Next?—Mortal Kombat X.”

Those are mixed in with a Disney princess and some mutant turtles, as you’ll see in the rankings below:
