The sole “positive” Razzie — the Razzie Redeemer Award, given to former Razzie nominees and winners who manage to turn themselves around with a great movie after previous shoddy work — is conspicuously absent from this year’s nominations list. In addition, some of last year’s critically-maligned movies that got snubbed include The Book of HenryThe Dark TowerThe Snowman, and Geostorm.

The 10 Movie Trailers With The Most Views In 24 Hours, Ranked

Previous1 of 11

Transformers Spider-Man It Movie PennywiseNot all trailers are created equal. Some give away too many plot points while some don’t reveal enough. Some only earn a couple thousand views in their lifetime, while others earn up to 197 million views in just 24 hours. At this point, trailers have become an art form in themselves as they sell the movie to audiences who have thousands of different entertainment projects competing for their attention. To win the public’s attention, studios often spend big money on marketing campaigns designed to draw as many eyes onto a franchise as possible.

Heroic Hollywood has gathered the ten trailers that generated the most views in their 24 hours and ranked them from worst to best. Just because a trailer is on the top ten doesn’t mean that it’s good (the same applies for the movies mentioned in this list), it just means it succeeded in capturing the attention of the world for a moment. In the dog-eat-dog world that is the entertainment industry, if you aren’t able to generate buzz around your product months before it’s even released, then you’re doing something wrong.

Hit Next to learn how we ranked the 10 trailers with the most views in their first 24 hours.
