Watch the record-breaking trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home

It seems treating Spider-Man fans mean is the way to keep them keen.

After withholding the first teaser trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home for months, the trailer — launched Tuesday — has smashed viewing figures records.

Sony Pictures says the teaser trailer broke the 24-hour all-time record for most global views with 355.5 million trailer views, eclipsing the previous record holder, Avengers: Endgame, which drove 289 million views.

Responding to the news, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland promised on Instagram: "It only gets crazier".

Posting on his Instagram Story, he added "This is incredible. I honestly can't believe it. This movie is so crazy and I can't wait to share it with you."

The studio, which produces the Spider-Man films in collaboration with the Disney-owned Marvel Studios, claims the trailer also dominated social media conversation too and generated 'the largest 24-hour social media conversation volume of all-time with 4.5 million mentions'.
