Trailers for games Call of Duty and X-Men rank among the most watched on YouTube, according the video site’s new summer Trailers Leaderboard.

The aggregated Top 10 list accounts for a total of 98 million viewers and 160 million minutes watched, with the average view duration for each trailer being 1:43, or 74% of the video. All videos clock longer than 1:30.
