Well here is some more proof in the pudding that Sci-Fi and fantasy is kicking ass and that science fiction is very much alive and is in no danger of going extinct anytime soon. Yahoo has unveiled its list of the most popular movie trailers of the year for 2009 and this year's top honor was none other than 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon.' Trailers for both 'New Moon' and 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,' which took second place, were watched over a whopping 20 million times each. Though these are impressive numbers it's not incredibly surprising since the films were huge blockbusters.
Every movie on the list was a major blockbuster, except for one, which is 'Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus,' which is a straight-to-DVD film that was developed by the Asylum company, which has previously released such crap as 'Transmorphers' and 'Snakes on a Train.' The 'Mega Shark' trailer was so bizarre that word spread like wildfire and skyrocketed it to the eighth spot on Yahoo's list. Also every trailer on the list is either Sci-Fi or Fantasy except one which is 'Up' but even it is a animation movie made by Pixar and could be placed in the fantasy category. Here is the full top ten list: 1. The Twilight Saga: New Moon 2. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen 3. 2012 4. Terminator Salvation 5. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 6. G.I. Joe 7. Star Trek 8. Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus 9. Avatar 10. Up
