YouTube Most Watched Trailers Of 2014

We saw some pretty major trailers in 2014. There were trailers for sequels 10, 20, even 30 years in the making; ones for mysterious passion projects; and trailers for adaptations of beloved books. But only one trailer gets to be the most major trailer of 2014. And it’s probably not the one you think it is.

The top movie might surprise you because its not Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Which movie trailer tops the YouTube Most Watched Trailers Of 2014 list? Find out after the jump.

Mad Max Fury Road Photos

Just hours after I called Mad Max: Fury Road my most anticipated film of 2015 (other staff members, such as Germain, have a different film in their top ranks) the new trailer dropped, and melted the face off the internet. This trailer is total visual overload, with very little indication of the story to come. In fact, from what we know of Fury Road, that isn’t even a misrepresentation of the film. Like The Road Warrior, this is said to be primarily an action-heavy chase film, without much dialogue at all.

Still, there are some significant clues to take out of this new trailer. Below we’ve got dozens of Mad Max Fury Road photos from the new footage, and a lot of info about what’s to come in the film. Let’s over-analyze the trailer after the break. Read More »

new Mad Max Fury Road trailer

I just listed Mad Max: Fury Road as my #1 most anticipated movie of 2015, and right on the heels of that list we’ve got a new trailer for the film. Watching this, my primary question is: How the hell does this movie even exist? This looks like pure, wonderful insanity, and like nothing we’d expect from the modern studio system. This seems to be a sequel that may barely be a sequel in modern terms; an orgy of practical effects and automotive destruction; and if some of those quick insert shots are to be believed, a dose of pure weirdness. Check out the new Mad Max Fury Road trailer below.

Fury Road press conference

Because The Road Warrior is one of the best and most pure action films ever made, we’ve been clocking the development of Fury Road for years. Our first coverage was back in 2008, and the announcement that Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy could be in the film dates back to ’09. News that director George Miller has written not one, but two sequels goes back to 2011.

So the Comic Con appearance of Mad Max: Fury Road was a great pleasure. The fact that the film was among the most striking things we saw at SDCC 2014 was even more impressive; after all those years in development, who knew what to expect? We’ve shown you the trailer, and now you can watch the whole Fury Road press conference, in which Miller and producer Doug Mitchell discuss the film’s development, story, and production. We’ve also gone back to a TV appearance Miller did several years ago, talking about the film.

2014 Comic Con buzz

Just having gotten home from San Diego, I’m not sure which film excited me the most at 2014 San Diego Comic Con International. Mad Max: Fury Road was definitely the biggest surprise in terms of footage. Avengers: Age of Ultron and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice owned the majority of my conversations. While the Marvel footage was as expected, it was great. The Batman v Superman footage showed us a big screen Batman that we’ve never seen before and the Wonder Woman first look photo had everyone talked, in the hall and online. So which movies had the online community talking the most? General Sentiment, a social media analysis firm, has sent me their findings. See a list of the highest 2014 Comic Con buzz after the jump.
