Netflix has revealed the updated viewership figures for its movies and series. The streaming giant’s figures, shared by several publications, feature several surprises. Keep in mind that the actual numbers may be much lower as the company counts anything more than two minutes as ‘view’.
The list of films mostly contains crowd-pleasers, projects that would have made full use of the big screen. Chris Hemsworth’s action-thriller Extraction leads with 99 million views. It is followed by Sandra Bullock-starrer horror film Bird Box, Mark Wahlberg’s crime-action drama Spenser Confidential, and Ryan Reynolds’ 6 Underground with 89 mn, 85 mn and 83 mn views.
