Top 10 Week of Dec. 27: ‘Cobra Kai’ Kicks Off the New Year at #1, ‘Don’t Look Up’ Skyrockets on the Most Popular Film List

The highly anticipated fourth season of Cobra Kai came out on top at the All Valley Tournament this week. The series, starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, premiered on New Year's Eve and was #1 on the English TV list with 120.06M hours viewed. The new season was in the Top 10 in 83 countries and Season 1 also made the list at #8. 

Two more new additions debuted on the Top 10 English TV list: crime series Stay Close, from legendary author Harlan Coben, and Season 6 of the Emmy award-winning Queer Eye

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut The Lost Daughter came in at #3 on the English Film list with 18.26M hours viewed. Based on the Elena Ferrante novel of the same name, the Olivia Colman, Dakota Johnson, and Jessie Buckley-led film made the Top 10 in 33 countries. 

For the second week in a row, Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up topped the English film list with 152.29M  hours viewed. After just 10 days, the film has blasted its way to #3 on the Most Popular Film list with 263.32M hours viewed. Additionally, Nora Fingscheidt’s The Unforgivable starring Sandra Bullock moves up in the Most Popular Films list into the #7 spot. 

If you’re still looking for your new year's resolution, consider exploring more films and series from around the world this year. You never know when (and where!) you’ll discover your new favorite, like Korean drama The Silent Sea, which remained on the Top 10 non-English series list, Brazilian romantic comedy Lulli or French film Vicky and Her Mystery, both of which ranked among the Top 10 non-English films of the week.
