Twenty-two days. That’s on a regular basis that’s handed between April 30 and Could 21. And through these 22 days, loads of films thrived on the Netflix platform. From The Lady within the Window to Lifeless Man Down to Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wished, the Prime 10 charts have been been populated with a well-known solid of movies.
However none of these films went as viral as Netflix’s newest animated hit. Actually, it could possibly be argued that no film has ever been this dominant.
The movie? The Mitchells vs. The Machines, which has now spent its first 22 days on Netflix’s Prime 10 charts. And whereas that’s a feat that loads of different films have completed for the reason that Prime 10 checklist was established again in February 2020, maybe no film has been this assertive throughout its reign of energy.
Take Bigfoot Household, or occasion—one other animated movie that handily managed the Prime 10 earlier this yr. That film kicked off its Netflix run with six straight days within the #1 place on the day by day charts, and went on to file 26 whole appearances on the checklist.
Or take Thunder Power, which solely spent 23 days on the charts, however managed to rack up 187 factors throughout that span of time (you possibly can learn extra concerning the Netflix factors system here). When the movie exited the Prime 10 charts on Could 1, Thunder Power had not solely accrued the Eleventh-most factors ever within the Prime 10 period, however had garnered extra factors than another 2021 launch.
However that every one modified this previous week when The Mitchells vs. The Machines introduced its rating this yr to 209 factors. And in contrast to Thunder Power, Netflix’s newest animated movie isn’t slowing down because it nears its twenty third day on the Prime 10. To this present day, The Mitchells vs. The Machines hasn’t fallen under the third-place place on the day by day charts. And in only a matter of days, it’s probably that the film will cross Hubie Halloween to formally turn out to be one of many ten hottest films on Netflix for the reason that Prime 10 checklist was established.
Listed here are the present 20 hottest films on Netflix within the Prime 10 period, based on my formulation:
- Despicable Me – 428 factors
- We Can Be Heroes – 420 factors
- The Grinch – 349 factors
- The Secret Lifetime of Pets 2 – 318 factors
- How The Grinch Stole Christmas – 299 factors
- The Offended Birds Film 2 – 284 factors
- 365 Days – 282 factors
- The Christmas Chronicles 2 – 241 factors
- Spenser Confidential – 239 factors
- Hubie Halloween – 224 factors
- The Mitchells vs. The Machines – 201 factors
- Thunder Power – 187 factors
- The Fallacious Missy – 187 factors
- The Lorax – 186 factors
- Extraction – 182 factors
- Angel Has Fallen – 182 factors
- The Outdated Guard – 179 factors
- Undertaking Energy – 179 factors
- Sure Day – 176 factors
- Bigfoot Household – 171 factors
On these rankings, there are three different 2021 releases: Thunder Power, Sure Day and Bigfoot Household. And whereas all of these films had spectacular showings on the Prime 10 charts (as an illustration, Sure Day spent 9 consecutive days in first place, which is a milestone solely 5 different movies had achieved on the time), none of them have been in a position to match what The Mitchells vs. The Machines has finished over the previous 22 days.
The movie kicked off its Netflix run with 14 straight days within the #1 place—a feat solely two different films, Spenser Confidential and Hubie Halloween, has completed. And since, The Mitchells vs. The Machines has spent 5 extra days within the second-place place—and to this present day hasn’t fallen under the #3 spot.
Not solely is The Mitchells vs. The Machines the highest new launch for Netflix in 2021, but it surely would possibly very nicely be within the midst of probably the most spectacular Prime 10 run ever. Whereas Spenser Confidential had an extended #1 streak final yr with 18 consecutive days, that film additionally exited the Prime 10 after 26 days. So if The Mitchells vs. The Machines can maintain on longer than that, then we could witness a fully legendary displaying that’s by no means been matched by another film on Netflix.
