Netflix wants "an impactful movie every 2 weeks" – reveals top 10

28 Jul 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Extraction, Bird Box and Spenser Confidential top the list of the 10 most watched movies from Netflix. "We want an impactful movie every two weeks," says the company.

The list of the 10 most popular movies from Netflix could be mistaken for a top 10 list of blockbuster movies in theaters. It is dominated by action, thriller, drama, and romantic comedies.

Extraction Netflix

The company has for the first time released a top 10 list. It is not the independently verified viewership data that industry observers had been clamouring for but it does give us rough idea about things. Netflix explains that it counts a view after just 2 minutes of streaming. On the other hand it counts 'plays' – we do not know how many people were watching but probably more than one. And the numbers only cover the first four weeks after the premiere. It cuts both ways. Almost 100 million user accounts had watched Netflix's most popular movie four weeks after the premiere; Extraction. The company's most high-profile movie is arguably The Irishman from Martin Scorsese. It takes spot number 6.

It is not a 1:1 comparison but for reference Titanic sold 135 million tickets at the worldwide box office while Star Wars from 1977 sold almost 180 million tickets. Bloomberg notes that all movies on the top 10 list were released within the last 3 years. Most of them are less than a year old. Netflix has transmorphed into Hollywood's most productive movie studie in record time and is still growing at record pace. Its ambition is now to release "an impactful movie every two weeks". - "We want an impactful movie every two weeks," Scott Stuber, head of Netflix' film division, told Bloomberg. "For one person, that’s Extraction. For another, it’s The Wrong Missy." - Source: Netflix, Bloomberg
