Netflix's 'Red Notice' on track to be most popular movie per new metric
Netflix is the ‘dominant’ force in streaming with linear television ‘falling apart’: Rich Greenfield
Lightshed Partners’ Rich Greenfield discusses the future of streaming and television.
Netflix's latest movie "Red Notice," starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, is currently its most popular movie per a new metric released by the streaming giant and it's on track to be the most-watched ever.
On Tuesday, Netflix rolled out a new website that measures its most-viewed films and series by the number of hours users spend watching them. As previously reported, "Squid Game" tops the list for TV shows while the new action-adventure film has turned out to be a massive win for the platform.
The film stars the trio of stars on a worldwide adventure that takes them into the high-stakes world of art theft, forcing them to make reluctant alliances with one another as they seek out a treasure from ancient Egypt.
According to the streaming service's new metric, Rawson Marshall Thurber's "Red Notice" has been watched for 148.7 million hours globally since it debuted on Nov. 12 on Netflix. In the past week, the most popular series was season three of "Narcos: Mexico," with 50.3 million hours viewed. However, the first season of "Squid Game" ranks as Netflix's most-watched show or film ever, with 1.6 billion hours viewed.
