Cults 💀and Tigers 🐯 and John Hartley 🚨, Oh My!
TOP 10 LISTS: NOVEMBER 15- 21
John Hartley, Nolan Booth and The Bishop have pulled off the biggest heist of all. Red Notice, from writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber, and starring Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds, not only broke into the Most Popular Netflix English Film list of all time, but with 277.9M hours viewed it’s risen to #2 in just 10 days. And for the second week in a row, the film cracked the Top 10 in all 94 countries. Fans of The Rock and Reynolds also clearly wanted more - their other films, Central Intelligence (14.91M) and 6 Underground (7.77M), both broke into the Top 10 this week.
And yes, it’s that time of year again when everyone loves a little holiday romance. The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star landed in the top 10 with 24.77M hours spent in everyone’s favorite fictional kingdom, Montenaro! Audiences also watched a famous rapper fall in love with a tenacious journalist in French rom-com series Christmas Flow (9.72M) and a catfish scheme gone wrong (or right) in Love Hard (21.24M), which has been in the Top 10 for three weeks.
On our Non-English language film list, Brazil was the winner, clinching the #1 and #2 spots with the rom-com Just Short of Perfect a new entrant and 7 Prisoners, from director Alexandre Moratto, appearing for the second week in a row. We also saw Dhamaka, the drama-thriller from India, Prayers for the Stolen, Mexico’s Official Selection for the 2022 Academy Awards, Turkish drama Love Me Instead, and anime film Earwig and the Witch from the legendary Studio Ghibli in Japan make it into the Top 10.
Two new series took the #1 slots this week, in both English and Non-English lists: Arcane with 38.42M hours viewed (and yes, season 2 is now officially a go?) and Korean horror series Hellbound rose above Squid Game with 43.48M hours viewed. The K-wave keeps coming.
Oh and in case you cool cats and kittens missed it, Tiger King is back. The infamous and colorful saga of America’s most notorious big cat owners reached #4 on the Top 10 English TV list. Audiences around the world spent 30.03M hours wondering what happened to Don Lewis? Will Joe be freed? What's Jeff Lowe up to?
