The two most popular Netflix movies around the world right now – The UBJ

Two recently released Netflix movies shot straight to the top of this week’s list, specifically to the #1 and #2 spots in their first week on the chart. It’s one of the things that stands out, at least for me, from Netflix’s Top 10 list of the most-watched movies in the world on this week’s streamer.

This seems to indicate that a significant portion of members are still watching new, high-profile Netflix shows almost as soon as they are released, which is encouraging for the streamer’s prospects as this industry becomes increasingly competitive. As usual, the list includes a mix of recently released Netflix originals, vintage third-party films, and a few other miscellaneous items.

For example, Gerard Butler’s latest thriller Last Seen Alive and two relatively recent Netflix releases, Blonde and Lou, round out the top five this week. In the meantime, below we’ll take a closer look at the first two.

Netflix’s Best Movies (October 3 – October 9)

Number 1 on Netflix is ​​Luckyest Girl Alive.

The first of the two is Luckyest Girl Alive, which debuted at No. 1 this week after racking up just over 43 million viewing hours from subscribers around the world.

This Netflix movie, which stars Mila Kunis, “focuses on Ani FaNelli, a sharp-tongued New Yorker who seems to have it all,” the streamer notes. A coveted job at a glitzy magazine, a fantastic outfit, and an impending dream wedding in Nantucket are all examples of “having it all.” Ani is forced to face a terrible reality that could turn her carefully nurtured existence upside down when the maker of a crime documentary asks her to provide her side if she was a young student at the prestigious Brentley School when the horrific event happened. product.

It’s also worth noting that the fact that this Netflix movie only recently became available for streaming on October 7th makes its #1 ranking all the more remarkable; as a result, the film’s high rating is based on just three days of viewing time.

Number 2 on Netflix is ​​Mr. Harrigan’s phone.

Director John Lee Hancock’s adaptation of Stephen King’s short story ‘If It Bleeds’, which appeared in the author’s collection of tales in 2020, is the No. 2 film on the world’s top 10 list Netflix this week.
