Game Of Thrones will forever be linked to Star Wars due to cast members such as Emilia Clarke and Gwendoline Christie being amongst the show cast, and Executive Producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss producing futures Star Wars movies. Decider reports on the amazing reaction to the trailer for the final season.
In the first 24 hours since the battle filled trailer for the eighth and final season of the blockbuster based on George R.R. Martin’s writings was released in the morning of March 5, the 2-minute spot was viewed 81 million times.
As well as being one Hell of a number unto itself, that 81 million is also an all-time record for any trailer for any HBO show ever across digital platforms like YouTube and Twitter. For those of you who are statheads as well as fans of the battle for the Iron Throne, the previous record for any trailer from the now WarnerMedia-run premium cabler was 61 million views in 24 hours. That was held by the GoT Season 7 trailer that debuted in the summer of 2017.
