Netflix reveals the 15 most-watched movies of 2021

Given the state of our lives amidst the pandemic, we have been pushed into the confinement of our homes where streaming platforms such as Netflix and Hulu provide us with unbridled amounts of solace.  

Netflix is usually pretty tight-lipped about their stats and other such data. However, quite recently, they have revealed the top 15 most-watched films as of now in 2021.

The data, as collected by Forbes, revealed that Netflix has apparently calculated the popularity ratings by taking into account how long each film managed to secure a spot in the “Most Popular” section. 

While the one at the top comes as no surprise, given how entertaining and wholesome the film had been, we are quite surprised to find how Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted to make it to the list. Seems like we cannot get enough of Alex the lion and his friend’s antics.

Here are all the films that Netflix has revealed as the most-watched, in descending order:
