The 10 most popular films on Netflix this week: February 2024

The week leading up to Valentine’s Day has been taken over by the minions, at least on Netflix. Four out of the top ten films on Netflix globally happen to involve the little yellow guys going on one adventure or another.

Kicking off the list is the delightful Despicable Me 3, the third instalment in the beloved animated franchise. As Gru and his lovable minions go on another hilarious journey filled with mischief and heartwarming moments. 

Meanwhile, Despicable Me is nestled at the sixth spot, preceded by Despicable Me 2 at the fifth position. Despicable Me 2 has spent an astounding 12 weeks (not all consecutively) in the global top ten at this point.

In the second spot is Orion and the Dark, directed by Sean Charmatz and written by Charlie Kaufman, a charming animated tale that follows a young boy’s journey to conquer his fear of the dark. With its endearing characters and beautiful animation, it’s no wonder this film has captured the hearts of viewers.

For those craving a dose of suspense, the true crime film Lover, Stalker, Killer delivers thrills aplenty. Meanwhile, Minions, the Despicable Me spin-off showcasing everyone’s favourite yellow sidekicks once more, continues to entertain audiences as it sits pretty on the fourth spot.

Switching gears, American Assassin offers a pulse-pounding action experience, while Lift entertains folks in snooze town with its lazy heist thrills. 

For music enthusiasts, The Greatest Night in Pop provides an electrifying look into one of music’s most iconic events. Featuring unforgettable performances and behind-the-scenes insights, it’s a must-watch for any music lover.

Rounding out the list is the iconic Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep comedy-drama The Devil Wears Prada, a stylish and witty charmer perfect for any season.
