Netflix’s Red Notice is the streamer’s most-watched film of all time, reported CNN. The action movie starring Gal Gadot, Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds has been watched for 328.8 million hours around the world, according to a report by Deadline. Bird Box earlier was the streaming giant’s most-watched film with 282 million hours.
Red Notice has a 92% audience score and a 35% Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes. Last week, Netflix announced the new action film had the “biggest opening day” of any of its movies after it debuted on Nov 5.
“Red Notice is now the most-watched film in Netflix history, officially making it the number 1 all-time movie in streaming,” Johnson wrote.
He added, “Previous record held by Bird Box in 2018 with 282 million hours viewed. With still 11 days to go, Red Notice has been viewed for a staggering 328 million hours. With an incredible 92% global audience score. And we have almost two weeks left of our global run to tally up these extraordinary and groundbreaking metrics. Love you guys and thank you!”
Additionally, Gadot had penned, “You guys I can’t tell you how happy, how grateful, how blown away I am by these crazy stats and info. You have made our movie the biggest movie in the history of Netflix. You are the reason we’re making these movies. Your love means the world. And never to be taken for granted. Thank you.”
In August, Seven Bucks Productions’ President of Production, Hiram Garcia, who’s a producer on the film, teased that Red Notice is “the biggest movie Netflix has ever done.”
“Red Notice is such a fun film! It’s the biggest movie Netflix has ever done and they were incredible partners making sure we had everything we needed to finish the movie in the middle of a pandemic,” Garcia said in an interview with Collider at the time. And “despite all those challenges” that came amid the pandemic, Garcia said they’re “so happy” with how the film came together, thanks in large part to its blockbuster cast.
“Gal, Ryan and DJ have such amazing chemistry and look awesome together,” he said. “You just can’t get enough of them. Plus the film has a un throwback vibe to it, with DJ being an FBI profiler chasing after the most wanted art thieves in the world.”
Red Notice is now streaming on Netflix.
