New Moon Fan Made Videos and Trailers Hits Over 100 Million Views On YouTube

Posted Nov 17, 2009

New Moon (aka The Twilight Saga: New Moon or Twilight 2) is a film that will be released this Friday as a romantic fantasy film. Summit Entertainment is the production company behind the movie. New Moon will be starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner. The budget of the movie is about $50-$70 million, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they surpass that number in revenues in the opening weekend.

Just out of curiosity I wanted to find out how well the trailer was doing on YouTube and I was astonished. I searched for New Moon trailer on YouTube and sorted the results by View Count. Then I added up all views that are related to New Moon whether it is a trailer or a fan made video. The total in the first two pages were over 100 million views.

That is a massive fan base for the movie. Considering that this count is the first two pages of YouTube, I can’t even imagine the total count of all New Moon videos from other sources too.
