Ryan Reynolds' Netflix film 'The Adam Project' becomes most-streamed film of 2022

Ryan Reynolds already has a Netflix smash hit under his belt. Red Notice starring Reynolds alongside Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson stormed the charts last year to become Netflix’s most-watched film launch ever. Now, the Deadpool star has secured another podium spot on the list with the Shawn Levy-directed film The Adam Project.

The film has become the third most-streamed film of Netflix’s tenure and sees Reynolds once again confirmed himself as one of the Hollywood greats, able to flit between high-powered action and high-hilarity fun.

While Deadpool earned its R-rating, The Adam Project is a much more family-friendly affair and pitches Reynolds in a cinematic sweet spot. With such a high-class leading man, streaming hours were bound to be huge, but the results of last week’s premiere have put the film as one of Netflix’s finest.

According to Netflix, the film has seen 92.4 million hours viewed. It’s the third-biggest opening weekend since the streamer introduced its new analytics. The only films to pip the new project in streaming hours are Red Notice and the Adam McKay apocalyptic romp Don’t Look Up.

The sci-fi time travel film saw Ryan Reynolds as the titular Adam who travels back in time to find his lost lover. He teams up with his younger self, portrayed by Scobell, and they share a goofy camaraderie where they constantly bicker with one another. Together, they travel further back in time to meet their now-dead father and seek answers.

The film is destined to be streamed for 100 million more hours in the next week. Given the success, Levy and Reynolds are now set to work together again, this time on Deadpool 3.
