Movie trailers are topping the YouTube charts again today with the number one and two spots occupied by upcoming releases for 2015. In the top spot is Pixar’s latest masterpiece, Inside Out followed closely by the long anticipated Mad Max reboot, Mad Max: Fury Road. While new movies might be leading the Top 20, it’s an old release that’s really dominating the charts. The Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailer for Guardians of The Galaxy may have dropped a few spots to number four, but it’s closely followed by another Guardians release. Marvel Entertainment released a 56-second bloopers clip from the set of last summer’s blockbuster film and it’s already climbed to number five.
The charts also made some room for music, with new videos from sultry songstress K. Michelle and perpetually-trying-to-happen-pop-princess Jessie J. Both ladies lay down some impressive vocals to accompany different but equally saucy videos, clicking in at 14 and 15 respectively. Today is also the second day in a row that the Top 20 welcomed Craig Wayne Boyd, a finalist on reality singing competition The Voice, whose solo performances on the show have routinely trended on YouTube. Currently Boyd is only a semi-finalist, but we haven’t seen any other Voice contenders trending this month, so we’re comfortable calling him a favorite to win.
Screen Junkies held down the number 4 spot, but they’re not the only YouTubers representing today. Youtube’s own creation, the annual “YouTube Rewind” held its own on the charts for a second day, locking in at number six while Smosh Games‘ own honest trailer for The Last of Us rolled in at number seven. Vice News captured the nine spot, interviewing the man who designed the CIA’s torture program and Epic Rap Battles managed to cling to the charts, clocking in at number 20 with their latest Ellen vs Oprah battle.
