Netflix has just lifted the veil on the list of the 10 most watched films in its catalog. Topping the list is always the action movie “Tyler Rake” starring Chris Hemsworth, Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock and Spenser Confidential. This new ranking marks the arrival of a few newcomers, including Enola Holmes, Army of the Dead and Project Power.
The Netflix catalog allows you to watch countless original productions and content produced by other studios. Nevertheless, it is the original series and films that have established themselves as the growth engine of the streaming service in recent years.
In this context, Netflix invests colossal sums every year in producing its own entertainment. In 2021, the number of VOD will also spend 19 billion dollars to produce films and series. It’s a record.
