Both of the films launched their preview via YouTube. While the views might not be treated as official, people are now relying on this free website when a new trailer comes out.
According to the Washington Post, The Force Awakens got 112 million views during the first 24 hours of release. However, the upcoming E.L. James flick slams the former by garnering around 114 million views upon its first day of release.
On the other hand, the latest Star Wars film gathered at least an overall gross of $2.1 billion. The movie got $937 million in America and $1.1 billion in the rest of the world.
