10 most popular films on Netflix this week: June 2022

After a huge subscriber exodus and falling stock prices, Netflix has been struggling financially. However, that has not deterred the streamer from constantly adding new titles to its shelves in the first weeks of June 2022. 

Every week we bring you the ten most popular Netflix films across the globe as we aim always to provide the very Best of Netflix

Ever since its release on May 26th, 2022, the American-Australian film Interceptor, directed by Matthew Reilly and starring Pataky and Luke Bracey, has shot up to the top of the charts with a viewing time of 35.6 million hours. It chronicles the adventures of an Army captain who must rely on her years of expertise and training to contain the coordinated attacks on the remote missile interceptor station she helms. 

Victoria Justice and Adam Demos’ film A Perfect Pairing has appeared on the chart for the third time in a row with a viewing time of 14 million hours. Demos became popular on Netflix for showing off his well-endowed appendage in Netflix’s Sex/Life and was notoriously called the “shower guy”. The overall feel-good nature of the film is similar to that of Hallmark films.

Rob Marshall’s Academy Award-winning 2005 film Memoirs of Geisha have found a place on the charts with 10 million hours of viewership. A rich and colourfully curated film, it gives an insight into the life and world of geishas in a geisha house. 

Starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, the 2012 adaptation of the Marvel superhero, The Amazing Spider-Man has surprisingly fun itself on the Netflix charts. Marvel fans have just had the opportunity to witness Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in theatres followed by a convoluted Doctor Stranger sequel starring Benedict Cumberbatch and seem to be still riding that high.
