As we dive into the third week of January 2024, let’s explore the ten most popular films that kept viewers hooked on Netflix last week.
Topping the charts at number one is F. Gary Gray’s Lift, the insipid heist film starring Kevin Hart and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. This film has hit the sweet spot for being just massy and mindless enough and amassed a jaw-dropping 32.8million views in a week. Following behind closely is Transporter 2, securing the second spot with 8.5million hours viewed. This action-packed film, starring Jason Statham at his peak, has captivated 5.8million viewers.
It seems that adrenaline-fueled car chases and high-stakes missions continue to be a winning formula for Netflix audiences because, at number three, we have yet another action extravaganza, Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer 3, starring Denzel Washington. It proves that the allure of justice and vigilante action remains strong.
Shifting gears, Anne Fletcher’s romcom, starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, The Proposal claims the fourth spot, racking up 8.8million hours viewed in its first week. Next, we have Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club, which takes the fifth spot.
Venturing into animated realms, The Super Mario Bros. Movie secures the sixth position, holding strong after seven weeks. The seventh spot goes to Leo, featuring Adam Sandler and Bill Burr’s voices. These aren’t the only animated flicks on the top ten this week. The Croods have come in hot in the ninth spot.
Netflix’s original production, Rebel Moon — Part One: A Child of Fire, is still going strong in the top four weeks in. The Zack Snyder space opera has claimed the eighth position.
Rounding out the top ten is A Day to Die, another heist film by Wes Miller. It is one of the several direct-to-video films Bruce Willis starred in 2022 before his family publicly shared his dementia diagnosis.
