Universal Pictures’ low-budget thriller Nobody, starring Bob Odenkirk as a family man who engages in a war with a crime boss after his house is separately burgled by two petty thieves, apparently resonated with streamers.
The movie, which proved to be a pandemic hit at half-open theaters, was also ranked as the most-streamed movie in 2021, according to new data from JustWatch, the content recommendation website tracks more than 20 million users’ monthly streaming decisions across 54 countries.
Nobody bested Warner Bros. Pictures’ Zack Snyder’s Justice League and Wrath of Man (starring Jason Statham) — a notable feat considering both movies streamed concurrently on HBO Max.
Meanwhile, Paramount Networks’ Montana-based modern day western “Yellowstone” topped Hulu’s “Rick and Morty” and Apple TV+ original series “Ted Lasso” as the most-streamed episodic program in 2021.
