Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Far From Home hasn't hit theaters yet, but it's already breaking records for Sony. The superhero sequel's first trailer became the highest-viewed trailer in a 24-hour period for a film from the studio.
Deadline reports the highly-anticipated first trailer for Far From Home broke records, amassing a jaw-dropping 130 million views in its first 24 hours. Spider-Man: Homecoming was the previous record holder, earning an impressive 116 million views in the same period.
The first trailer for Far From Home was hotly anticipated for a number of reasons. Firstly, the movie will kick-start Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will help determine the world's highest-grossing franchise's direction going forward. Deadline suggests that the critical and commercial success of Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse might've been a deciding factor in Far From Home's astronomical trailer views.
Although Far From Home's views are impressive, Avengers: Endgame's first trailer earned an astonishing 289 million views upon release in December. In terms of Sony films, Venom still leads Far From Home in total views, with the former sitting at 77.7 million views as opposed to the latter's 27.8 million.
Tom Holland is back as Peter Parker following the shocking events of Avengers: Infinity War. Far From Home is rumored to take place just minutes after the credits roll on this year's Avengers: Endgame and pits the wall-crawling hero against a new band of villains. The footage gave fans their first look at Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio, cast a question mark over Tony Stark's Avengers: Endgame fate and debuted Spider-Man's new Stealth Suit.
Opening July 5, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
