50 Shades Darker smashes a record held by Star Wars

By Cosmopolitan/Evelyne Wareh

Never underestimate the power of a super-sultry sequel.

According to Vulture, the highly anticipated new trailer for 50 Shades Darker received a staggering 144 million views in its first 24 hours online shattering the previously held record of 112 million views for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That’s right: The 50 Shades fandom somehow managed to beat out one of the most diehard and dedicated fandoms in existence with some shower sex and a masquerade ball. Who knew it was possible?!

Of course, it’s entirely likely the the new trailer racked up such high numbers due to repeat viewers over-analyzing every steamy moment between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, but, nonetheless, the record is still pretty darn impressive. You can watch (and re-watch) it again for yourself below.

50 Shades Darker hits theaters February 10, 2017.
