While this year was no doubt a big year for the movie market, next year is likely to get even bigger, judging by some of the trailers we’ve seen, including The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

With that, Comingsoon.net has compiled a list of the top 12 trailers of 2014, as well as the viewership numbers for each one. All of these trailers have managed to get a great deal of attention, with the lowest one on the list – Transfomers: Age of Extinction, with 37 million views.

The real surprise, though, is what landed in the number one slot. Many thought that Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be a shoo-in with the fanatical Internet crowd, but – surprise! – it was actually beaten by another movie coming next year. Check out the full list below.

Transformers: Age of Extinction




The return of Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss character was well received online, as Mockingjay Part 1 clocked in 38 million views.



Christopher Nolan’s return to the big screen was well met by audiences, who gave the initial trailer 39 million views. The star power of Matthew McConaughey certainly helped.

Dumb and Dumber To


The return of dimwits Harry and Lloyd turned out to be a welcome one for fans, as the trailer clocked in 44 million views. However, the movie has only performed moderately at the box office, sitting around $80 million thus far.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies


Peter Jackson’s farewell chapter to The Hobbit saga garnered 45 million views upon its debut. The movie debuted in theaters yesterday and is expected to break several box office records.



Surprise! The Minions can actually do rather well without their buddy Gru, as their debut trailer received 54 million views.

Furious 7


The power of the Fast and Furious franchise hasn’t slowed, even with the loss of co-star Paul Walker. The newest trailer for the series debuted with 57.5 million views.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Cowabunga! The return of the Ninja Turtles was well met with young and old fans alike, as the initial trailer received 58 million views.

Jurassic World


It’s been a few years since we’ve gotten a new Jurassic movie, but this new entry is highly anticipated, as the initial trailer has gotten 64 million views – and climbing.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

The latest trailer from Marvel Studios certainly disappoint, as The Avengers: Age of Ultron should be a tremendous box office hit next year. The trailer has gotten 78 million views thus far.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens


Of course, the Force is still strong with Star Wars. With exactly a year to go before its release, the teaser trailer has received 81 million views. A new one should get an equal amount of attention next summer.

Fifty Shades of Grey


Surprisingly, Star Wars didn’t earn top honors for trailers this year, as the movie edition of Fifty Shades of Grey beat it with 93 million views. It should no doubt turn a few heads next year.
