Remaining at No. 2 on the streaming movies chart was The Adam Project, released on Netflix March 11. It’s a science-fiction action film, starring Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner, that follows a man who travels through time and meets his younger self.
Remaining at No. 3 on the streaming movies chart was Turning Red, the latest Pixar animated feature. It started streaming on Disney+ March 11 and follows Mei Lee, a 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence.
