'New Moon' is This Year's Most Watched Trailer

Congrats go out to those of you who painstakingly watched the New Moon trailer, like, 10,000 times in a row, because you helped it become the most watched trailer of 2009! Yahoo Movies has released their annual list of the most-watched trailers of the year, and coming in at number one is, not surprisingly, The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

At a close second was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, followed by 2012, Terminator Salvation, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Star Trek, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, Avatar and then Pixar’s Up. Nowhere to be found on this list was Where the Wild Things Are, which was probably the most critically celebrated trailer of the year, capped off by a magical remix of Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up.”

Meanwhile, I’m still pretty shocked to see that the goofy trailer for Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus was actually watched more times than the trailers for Avatar and Up. Too bad these views don’t equal box office, or else Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus would probably be, like, the biggest grossing film of all time.
