Nielsen: Zack Snyder’s ‘Army of the Dead’ Zombie Movie Dominated Weekly Household Streaming Through May 23

Consumers love zombies on TV shows and in the movies. Throw in cult favorite director Zack Snyder, and Netflix had a sure bet with last month’s debut of original movie Army of the Dead.

Nielsen said the ensemble cast-driven movie, spearheaded by former pro wrestler Dave Bautista, generated 913 million minutes of streaming on domestic household TVs for the week of May 17-23.

Army of the Dead beat out Netflix’s previous movie chart topper, Woman in the Window (456 million minutes), starring Amy Adams, in addition to licensed episodes of “NCIS” (690 million minutes across 353 episodes) and Hulu’s season four of original series “The Handmaid’s Tale,” with 516 million minutes across 42 episodes.

“Tale” just edged out “Who Killed Sara?,” with 500 million minutes across 18 episodes.
