Aside from making us all cry like little newborn babies, the first trailer for Avengers: Endgame broke a new record for trailer views in its first 24 hours online. Based on a tweet from Marvel Studios, the teaser racked up 289 million views in just one day, beating out Infinity War, which only mustered 230 million when it dropped last November.

"To the greatest fans in the world, thank you for being there from the beginning until the endgame and making this the most viewed trailer in history with 289M views in 24 hours!" reads the tweet. 

Disney now holds the three top spots of most-viewed trailers in history with Endgame, Infinity War, and Jon Favreau's photorealistic remake of The Lion King

According to CNBC, Endgame could feasibly take in $600 million at the North American box office and a whopping $2 billion worldwide, just like its predecessor. 

"The stakes have been raised organically, and the slow reveal surrounding Endgame only intensifies curiosity," Shawn Robbins, chief analyst for Box Office.com, told the business-oriented outlet. "We're talking about the safest box office bet since Avengers: Infinity War itself and the recent episodic Star Wars films."

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters April 26.
