Social media buzz surrounding the next “Spider-Man” movie contributed to the franchise generating myriad views across connected televisions. New data from JustWatch found that Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spider-Man: Homec0ming, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse dominated the Top 10 household movie streams through Aug. 29 in the United States.
JustWatch, an international streaming guide, tracks SVOD streaming habits of 20 million monthly users across 47 countries, including the United States.
Last week, the trailer for pending Sony Pictures webslinger movie Spider-Man: No Way Home “mysteriously” found its way onto social media platforms, generating millions of views and buzz. The attention apparently generated a crush of catalog title streaming.
Among the most-streamed TV shows in the United States was “Cowboy Bepop,” about a ragtag crew of bounty hunters chasing down the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals. It ranked No. 1 among serialized shows, streaming on Amazon Prime Video and Hulu. The 2021 series bested AMC+ flagbearer “The Walking Dead” and Apple TV+ breakout hit “Ted Lasso.”
