No matter how you slice it, by the old metric or the new, Bird Box was the most-viewed Netflix original until Chris Hemsworth’s Extraction, or even until Red Notice premiere, if you use the updated metric of total hours consumed in the first 28 days. Bird Box had unbelievable 282 million hours, Red Notice just recently beat the score with 353 million. No wonder that Sandra Bullock set up her next movie with Netflix as well. The Unforgivable is definitely not a crowd-pleaser, it is a story about a woman released from prison into a society that won't forgive her past. Yet she seeks redemption by searching for the sister she left behind. Even with this heavy plot, The Unforgivable was able to score 83 number one spots over the weekend. Huge win, even if Rotten Tomatoes’ critic score isn’t looking all that great (40 %).
TV show chart is ruled by Money Heist. The somewhat controversial finale of the Spanish show is generating huge numbers, being number one in 57 markets (down from 86 last Monday). Not even the return of Titans could make a dent in La Casa de Papel. Don’t be fooled by the name, this house is rock solid and it will rule the chart until the return of The Witcher. Netflix has a great line-up towards the end of the year, with Geralt, Emily (in Paris), and Cobra Kai all returning.
