Netflix Announces Its Top 10 Most Popular Movies Of All Time

In addition to confirming the most popular movies and TV shows of 2020 so far, Netflix has announced (via Deadline) the most-watched original movies on the platform of all time over their first four weeks.

The Chris Hemsworth action movie Extraction ranks No. 1–it was seen by 99 million households worldwide over its first four weeks. The movie was written by Avengers’ veterans Joe and Anthony Russo, and it was directed by stunts expert Sam Hargrave.

Following at No. 2 is the 2018 Sandra Bullock movie Bird Box, which was seen by 89 million homes in its first four weeks. After that, the Mark Wahlberg movie Spenser Confidential ranks No. 3 (85 million views over its first 28 days), with 6 Underground (83 million) and Murder Mystery (73 million) rounding out the top five.

Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman was No. 6 with 64 million homes watching it over its first four weeks. The movie picked up 10 Oscar nominations last year, but it did not win any.

It might be surprising to see that only one Adam Sandler movie, Murder Mystery, ranks on this list. Sander’s movies are wildly popular on Netflix–racking up more than 2 billion streaming hours–and the streaming Netflix has signed Sandler for four more films. Murder Mystery was, however, the most popular movie on Netflix in 2019.

Even if the numbers are sort of whack–requiring only a small amount of watch time to count as a view–they showcase which shows on Netflix claims are most popular.
