Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer Makes History With 100 MILLION Views!
Fifty Shades of Grey and author, E.L. James are definitely not strangers to breaking records and it looks like they are at it again with the film. Universal announced today that the first trailer has scored over 100 million views across all social media platforms, after only being released one week ago.
Is anyone surprised by these unprecedented numbers? Of course not!
Selling over 100 million copies worldwide, in 52 languages, the Fifty Shades of Grey book broke the record for the longest run on USA Today's Bestseller's List, holding the #1 spot for 20 straight weeks. It also holds the record as being the fastest selling paperback of all time and it was the first book ever to sell 1 million books on Amazon Kindle. It has been on the New York Time's Bestsellers List for a total of 66 weeks and as of today is back as #1 in the combined ebook and print category.
The Fifty fans have shown a huge amount of support for E.L. James and the books, so it only stands to reason they would come out in full force to support the film adaptation.
According to Deadline, "Some of that staggering online success is more easily quantifiable than others, given the nearly 33 million YouTube views logged in a week from Universal’s two official uploads alone. “Fifty Shades Of Grey trailers are pulling monumental views” from two separate uploads this week, said RelishMix CEO Marc Karzen. The trailer on Universal’s YouTube channel attracted more than 13 million views, and its UK sibling did even better, with 19.3 million. “Add to that ripped and reposted versions on movie fan channels. It’s unprecedented for a film that’s six months out.”
We are so happy to see this film gaining just as much love and attention as the books. We can't wait to see this film break every box office record as well. You, the amazing Fifty Shades fans, are making this happen by continuing to show your support, but we can't stop now! Keep watching the trailer, over and over, share it on your social media again and again. We have to keep those views coming in so the records keep breaking.
We are so proud to be a part of this Fifty Fandom and we can't wait to see where Fifty Shades and E.L. James takes us next... the sky's the limit!
