Trailer Report: 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Edges 'Fifty Shades' for Top Spot
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 coming attraction was the most viewed trailer on YouTube, according to technology firm Zefr, which tracks the numbers. It was the second week in a row the trailer topped the list, though the decline was steep: from 16.9 million views to 2.03 million.
Still, that was enough to edge out Fifty Shades of Grey trailer No. 1 by fewer than 50,000 views; it notched 19.85 million views for the No. 2 spot.
