Netflix has released the updated ratings for its movies and series. The streaming giant’s numbers, shared by several publications, contain several surprises. Keep in mind that the actual numbers could be much lower, as the company counts as “display” for just over two minutes.
The list of movies usually includes crowd pleasers, projects that would have taken full advantage of the big screen. Chris Hemsworth’s action thriller Extraction leads with 99 million views. It is followed by Sandra Bullock-starrer horror film Bird Box, Mark Wahlberg’s crime-action drama Spenser Confidential, and Ryan Reynolds’ 6 Underground with 89 mn, 85 mn and 83 mn views.
