Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson now has the most watched film on Netflix.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson quickly turned into one of the highest-grossing movie stars when he burst onto the scene. The former WWE superstar made an immediate impact when he began making movies and that is continuing over the years. Now, The Rock has transitioned to Netflix as well.
It was recently announced that The Rock’s most recent movie ‘Red Notice’ is now the most viewed film on Netflix. This movie has brought in 328.8 million viewing hours. This easily tops the previous record, which was held by Sandra Bullock’s ‘Bird Box’ at 282 million viewing hours. It took this movie just 18 days to break the previous record compared to the four weeks it took ‘Bird Box’ to reach the number.
At the moment, 50% of Netflix’s subscribers around the world have viewed the film. ‘Red Notice’ stars The Rock, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot. It was produced by Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions and debuted on Netflix at the beginning of November. It is one of the top-10 films on Netflix in 94 countries.
This film was directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber. This is the third movie that Johnson and Thurber have worked on together, joining ‘Central Intelligence’ and ‘Skyscraper.’ Johnson plays an FBI agent who teams up with an art thief in order to catch a bigger criminal. Reynolds plays the part of the art thief and they are attempting to catch Gadot, who is the bigger criminal.
The action comedy was extremely successful out of the gate. It remained consistent throughout the month of November and will likely continue to put up some big numbers on the platform.
The Rock took to Instagram to celebrate the accomplish and thank all who have viewed the film.
