Netflix’s original action movie Red Notice and its newest South Korean series, “Hellbound,” emerged at No. 1 atop the streamer’s new global weekly data charts through Nov. 23. Netflix last week launched its first weekly chart showcasing the streamer’s most-viewed content in the U.S. and worldwide.
Red Notice, co-starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, remained No. 1 for the second week, topping The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star, starring Vanessa Hudgens, and Central Intelligence, co-starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Amy Ryan, Aaron Paul and Ed Helms, as reported by FlixPatrol.com.
While the Netflix original movies Love Hard and Army of Thieves ranked No. 9 and No. 10, the rest of the chart consisted of licensed films, including The Croods, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Jason Bourne, Five Feet Apart and The Transporter Refueled.
Among episodic programming, the new South Korean series “Hellbound” achieved the top ranking, unlike previous Korean hit “Squid Game,” which took a few weeks to achieve its global acclaim.
The series, like “Squid Game,” showcases an apocalyptic world in which smoky gray monsters deliver bloody condemnations and drag some people to hell.
Other top series included originals (in order) “Arcane,” “Cowboy Bepop,” “Squid Game,” “The Queen of Flow,” “Maid,” “Narcos: Mexico,” “You,” “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha,” and “The King’s Affection.”
In the U.S., the top three streaming series included “Cowboy Bepop,” Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” and “Hellbound.” The top three movies included Red Notice, Here Comes the Boom and Extinct.
