Sharing statistics about the number of views and subscribers from time to time, Netflix has now released its 10 most watched original films. According to the data, Netflix subscribers are more interested in action and thriller movies.
Although Netflix offers lists such as ‘most watched’ to its subscribers, it never shares how many people watched the content. Therefore, it is not possible to understand how popular a Netflix production is ‘really’. Now, Netflix has exceeded its limits on statistics, releasing the top 10 most watched Netflix Original movies and views in its first four weeks.
Unlike traditional media, Netflix is mostly a platform preferred by “active” social media users. Therefore, when any Netflix Original movie is released, it is also on the social media agenda in parallel. Therefore, it is not possible to understand the popularity level of the productions. This is exactly what makes Netflix explain the number of views.
The 10 most watched Netflix Original movies
Extraction: 99 million
Bird Box: 89 million
Spenser Confidential: 85 million
6 Underground: 83 million
Murder Mystery: 73 million
The Irishman: 64.2 million
Triple Frontier: 63 million
The Wrong Missy: 59 million
The Platform: 56.2 million
The Perfect Date: 48 million
When we look at the list that Netflix has shared, we see that action and tension elements come to the fore especially in all the top four productions. Also worldwide famous names (Chris Hemsworth, Sandra Bullock, Mark Wahlberg, Ryan Reynolds) were starring in the same productions.
The action / tension is abundant and the films with world-famous names are watched significantly more than the others, and the statistics of TV and cinema films overlap. However, how reliable the number of views Netflix has shared is another matter of discussion.
