JustWatch: ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,’ ‘Silo’ Topped June Streaming Chart

Sony Pictures Animation’s original Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Apple TV+ original sci-fi series “Silo,” topped all movie and episodic programming in the month of June, according to new data from JustWatch, which tracks the streaming video habits, including digital retail and rental, of 20 million users across 59 markets, including the U.S.

Movie — the year’s current top box office earner through midway 2023 — and Liongate’s hit John Wick: Chapter 4 for the monthly podium spots.

“Silo,” headlined and co-executive produced by Rebecca Ferguson (“Mission: Impossible” franchise), the series topped strong newcomers “From,” the MGM+ original sci-fi series about residents of a small town struggling to find a way out when mysterious unknown forces keep them from leaving, and the second season of critically-acclaimed family diner drama, “The Bear” streaming on Hulu.

JustWatch: Sony’s ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,’ Netflix’s New Season of ‘Black Mirror’ Top Weekly Streaming Through June 18

Streaming interest in Sony Pictures Animation’s 2018 original Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse continued strong for a second consecutive week, again holding off former chart toppers The Super Mario Bros. Movie (Universal Pictures) and Lionsgate’s John Wick: Chapter 4, according to new data from JustWatch, which tracks the weekly streaming video habits, including digital retail and rental, of 20 million users across 59 markets, including the U.S.

Among top episodic programming the week ended June 18, the sixth season of Netflix’s trippy “Black Mirror” sci-fi series pushed aside the previous week’s topper: Apple TV+ original series “Silo,” headlined by “Mission: Impossible” co-star Rebecca Ferguson. Rounding out the podium was “The Crowded Room,” Apple’s new psychological thriller headlined by Tom Holland (Spider-Man: No Way Home), Emily Rossum (“Shameless”) and Amanda Seyfriend (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), among others.

JustWatch: Original Animated ‘Spider-Man’ Movie, ‘Shiny Happy People’ Top Weekly Streaming Through June 11

Sony Pictures Animation’s first Spider-Man movie, Into the Spider-Verse, along with the Prime Video docuseries “Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets,” topped weekly streaming through June 11, according to new data from JustWatch, which tracks the streaming video habits, including digital retail and rental, of 20 million users across 59 markets, including the United States.

The original animated webcrawler’s movie ranking is all the more impressive considering it hit theaters almost five years ago, and held off 2022 and current 2023 box office champ, 20th Century Studios’ Avatar: The Way of Water, and Universal Pictures’ The Super Mario Bros. Movie, respectively, among others.

The dysfunctional Duggar family reality show topped perennial Apple TV+ chart toppers: sci-fi series “Silo,” and soccer comedy “Ted Lasso.” Amazon Freevee’s original reality TV comedy “Jury Duty” continues to climb the top 10 streaming charts industrywide, moving up to the No. 4 spot.
