Bond trailer gets 4.5m YouTube hits

The trailer for the new James Bond film Spectre has notched up 4.5 million plays on YouTube in its first 24 hours online - the equivalent of 3,000 plays per minute.

Fans of 007 and Daniel Craig (left) have already ensured the action-packed montage will be one of the most-watched YouTube movie clips of the year.

But Bond still has some way to go to beat the 76.4 million views for the trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, currently this year's highest-grossing film. The Avengers trailer has been online since October 22 last year, and is still receiving around 318,000 views a day. Spectre is not due for release until October 26, meaning there is time for 007 to catch up.
