Congrats goes out to James Gunn, the cast, crew, Marvel and Disney as the new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer is the second most viewed trailer ever -- and the best teaser ever for Marvel Studios.

If you would have asked me eight years ago when I started Cosmic Book News to promote the Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova comics (Marvel COSMIC comic book news) if we'd ever get a movie - let alone two movies -  I'd think you were as crazy as the Mad Titan Thanos himself!

Per James Gunn on Facebook, the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer netted a whopping 81 million views in its first 24 hours. Gunn offered the following:

Holy crap! With 81 million views in its first 24 hours, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Teaser Trailer is the SECOND BIGGEST TEASER TRAILER EVER (after Beauty and the Beast), and the biggest Marvel Studios Teaser ever! No kidding - I'm, like, floored. Thank all of you so very much for watching it (more than once), and sharing it, and welcoming Baby Groot and Mantis with open arms. Thanks for all your amazing reactions (including your reaction videos, which Jennifer Holland and I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning watching the other night). Thanks to the wonderful folks at CCXP in Brazil where we debuted the trailer. And finally (yes, I know, it's starting to become like I'm accepting an award - sorry BUT) HUGE THANKS to the smart and kind marketing folks at Marvel and Disney who put up with all my eccentricities during the teaser editing process. Honestly. You guys can't imagine what they deal with. I'm a maniac. Now they're gonna have to deal with it again as we prep the FULL TRAILER... 

And even more so as we finish up the MOVIE...

Oh - and the icing on the cake - "Fox on the Run" by Sweet, the song used in the teaser, rose to number one on the iTunes Rock Chart!

Did I mention we debuted on a Saturday when you're NEVER EVER supposed to debut anything?

HAVE A GREAT WEEK and feel free to post your favorite #GotGVol2Teaser memes below! So many good ones.
