Avatar Image says: Squee for Harry Potter it's awesome!! But ugh @ Twilight... none of my friends like the trailer o.O First?Avatar Image says: Not a suprise - it would been higher if it'd been released earlier.Avatar Image says: Since it's 'most watched' trailers I think it's telling that it's right up there and is such a recent release. Yay anyway, it's such a great trailerAvatar Image says: Not a surprise coz its just AWESOME!!! Too bad they couldn't release the movie instead. great.Avatar Image says: They better name it a top trailer!!! Man that blew me away!Avatar Image says: I'm usually indifferent to trailers, but the first teaser trailer for HBP was incredible. I loved the scene in the orphanage with Dumbledore and young Tom Riddle. WOW. I thought it was very scary...as it should have been.Avatar Image says: Interesting that Twilight is higher than Harry Potter. It pretty much shows that the great Harry Potter era has subsided and has now graciously passed the baton on to the Twilight craze, though I dont see the having anywhere near the longevity of Harry Potter. @KB Prez, I agree, the first HBP trailer was terrific. It was haunting and almost Omen like! But it was also intimate to mostly HP fans. The last trailer was absolutely mind blowing for cinema going audience though and deserves a place in the top 10. In fact I would truly rate it as number 2, personally. Dark Knight's 2nd trailer deserving number 1.Avatar Image says: These are just trailers. Obviously the HBP film will be waaaaaaaaaay better and make way more than both Twilight and it's upcoming sequel combined.Avatar Image says: Yeah!!! Thats right. Twilight is alright but GO HARRY POTTER!!! Just wait till next year . Then HP will be first.And the Hp trailer only came out recently so sixth is actually pretty goodAvatar Image says: @ Professor Potter... The Harry Potter era is not over and its not passing the baton on to anyone. HP for lifeAvatar Image says: Hahaha squee! I got my name put in a news post! :) Avatar Image says: well even though twilight is big right now, hp will be back up top soon Avatar Image says: and what does that mean exactly?? to the best of my knowledge the dark knight turned out to be the average movie with H.Ledger outperforming everyone else, indiana jones should never have been made, Iron man, the Incredible Hulk and Hancock were only slightly above average with the latter being a total joke, sex and the city was so bad even the actors knew, and wanted was a total waste of time with too much jolie effect going on. the only ones as of yet unclear are twilight and HBP and I can make some safe bets about those too. Therefore, clearly having top trailer is totally irrelevant to anything. Even a horrible movie can have a nice trailer that is worth more than the actual movie. Anyway, point is, i don't get why they even bother with this stuff. I suggest they do a 'top hair style' and 'best teeth' and 'best font used in trailer' or some other equally ridiculous 'tops' listing. Avatar Image says: Harry Potter should have been #1 it should have passed Twilight even if Twilight is huge right now it doesn't matter Harry Potter should have been FIRSTAvatar Image says: Ugh, I really didn't like the Twilight trailer. Oh well. Go Harry!! Yay. :-)Avatar Image says: WOW already tops in something, go HP!!! I love the trailer its so awesome!!! and yeah the Twilight trailer was horrible and that's saying something because I'm a die hard Twilight fan, also Harry Potter, but I like the HP trailer way better than the Twilight one. Avatar Image says: Go Harry Potter!! The Twilight trailer was RUBBISH and it's no. 3!!! What the hell!! I can't wait till this twilight craze is gone!Avatar Image says: I love harry potter way too much, like every night i cry myself to sleep because it isnt true i know its freaky but hey, harry po 6 bettter be good the trailer is good so it shouldAvatar Image says: The HP trailer just came out and it's already on a top list. Impressive.Avatar Image says: u have no any good face expreesion do practice on thatAvatar Image says: IT should have been the First!not at all surprised it made to the top10.what is Twilight doing in this list?Avatar Image says: DEAR VIEWERS I AM A RESIDENT OF INDIA AND TWILIGHT IS NOT RELEASING HERE.SO WILL YOU KINDLY TELL ME HOW THE MOVIE IS? TALKING ABOUT THE TRAILER OF HBP...IT WAS BOUND TO BE IN THE LIST.IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN#1,ACTUALLY.
