Netflix Top 10 List of Original Movies

Netflix is not big on releasing viewer numbers, but every once in awhile they throw us a bone, as they did last week when it revealed to Bloomberg it’s 10 most watched original movies. It’s no surprise that the ones with A-List stars came out on top. After all, a global stay-at-home population is hungry for their favorite celebs, especially since they can’t see them the big screen.

Numbers are ever increasing, of course, but when this list was released, we were stunned to see that the universally panned Murder Mystery, with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, took the number 5 spot (73 million views), a notch above Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman (64 million viewers), upon which Netflix has spent over $175 million.

The more recently released The Old Guard, starring Charlize Theron, has already eclipsed both of them, however — it’s at 75 million and counting after only about two weeks.

It’s also interesting to note that the top five are are action movies or thrillers, with prominent movie stars including Chris Hemsworth, Sandra Bullock, Mark Wahlberg, Ryan Reynolds and the aforementioned Theron. We’re thinking only in the summer of 2020 could a comedy starring David Spade (The Wrong Missy) make anyone’s top ten list.

In any case, here is the Netflix Top 10 List of Original Movies, and trailers to whet your appetite for five of them. They’re all worth a watch.
