The 2 biggest Netflix movies in the world right now

One of the things that stands out, at least to me, about Netflix’s Top 10 list of the most watched movies globally on this week’s streamer is the way that two newly released Netflix movies have shot straight to the top of this week’s list. — specifically, to the #1 and #2 spots in their first week on the chart.

What it seems to suggest is that a critical mass of subscribers are still checking out new big-name Netflix projects almost as soon as they debut, a positive sign for the streamer’s continued prospects as this field continues to be more competitive than ever. As always, this week’s list also continues the trend of including a mix of newly released Netflix originals, older third-party titles, and a few other things.

Rounding out the top five this week, for example, is Gerard Butler’s new thriller last seen aliveand then two other somewhat recent Netflix releases: lou Y Blond. We’ll take a closer look at the first two, in the meantime, below.

The best Netflix movies (from October 3 to October 9)

Starring Mila Kunis, this Netflix movie “focuses on Ani FaNelli, a sharp-tongued New Yorker who seems to have it all,” explains the streamer. That “having it all” includes “a coveted position in a glossy magazine, an amazing wardrobe, and a dream Nantucket wedding on the horizon. But when the director of a police documentary invites her to tell her version of the shocking incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Brentley School, Ani is forced to confront a dark truth that threatens to turn her life upside down. meticulously designed from her.

It’s worth adding that the No. 1 placement on this Netflix movie’s chart is all the more impressive, given that it just hit the streamer in October 7 — that is, the film’s high rating is based on just three days of viewing time.

Mr. Harrigan’s phone — #2 on Netflix

No. 2 on this week’s Netflix World Top 10 Movies list comes from director John Lee Hancock and is an adaptation of a Stephen King short story of the same name, published in the author’s 2020 collection of stories titled if it bleeds.

Here’s what you should know about the story behind Mr. Harrigan’s Phone. Per Netflix’s tagline, “A young boy (Jaeden Martell) befriends a reclusive older billionaire (Donald Sutherland) and finds himself able to communicate with him from the grave via the iPhone that was buried with him when he passed away.” The movie debuted on the streamer a week ago, at the time of this writing (October 5). However, in that short period of time, it was a surprising distance from the No. 1 spot on Netflix’s weekly top movie rankings, with its No. 2 spot coming from earning slightly more than 35 million hours of viewing time this week.
