The Avengers did it again! Within a 24 hour time period the latest and greatest Avengers trailer was viewed on iTunes 13.7 million times! This shatters the previous record which was The Avengers Super Bowl spot, which had over 10 million views. I've watched it about 27 times already myself, and I think I'll go ahead and watch it again. While I'm at it, you might as well do the same thing. It can't hurt by adding a little more awesomeness to your day.
Do you think The Avengers has the ability to beat Avatar at the box office becoming the highest grossing film ever made?
