Ryan Reynolds Sets New Netflix Movie Record
Say hello to Ryan Reynolds, the new king of Netflix. Yes, the rough-action movie star set a stunning new record by being the only actor to have three movies featured on Netflix’s Top 10 English Language Movies list at the same time. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this incredible achievement has never been done before, so enjoy a glass of Ryan Aviation gin; You deserved it.
What are the movies? As of this writing, these include Red Notice, 6 Underground and The Adam Project. The question, however, is how many people actually watched these films. We know Netflix likes to keep viewing numbers close to its chest, and the metrics of what counts as “watching” are as opaque as school cream.
At the time of this writing, Red Notice fans are reported to have clocked 364 million hours, people have spent 209 million hours of The Adam Project, while 6 Underground brings up the rear, being viewed for 205 million hours. It’s a whole lot of bad Reynolds puns, over-the-top stunts and car chases.
After all this incredible success, it’s no surprise that Reynolds is ready for a break. The actor recently said he plans to take a sabbatical after shooting three movies in a row.
“It’s a wrap for me on Spirited,” he wrote on instagram. “I’m not sure I would have been ready to say yes to such a difficult movie three years ago,” he posted. “Singing, dancing and playing in the sandbox with Will Ferrell has made many dreams come true. And this is my second film with the great Octavia Spencer.
“A perfect time for a little sabbatical from filmmaking,” he continued. “I’m going to miss every second of working with this obscenely gifted group of creators and artists. These days, kindness counts as much as talent. I’ve been lucky enough to work with people who know both.
What does this mean for Deadpool 3? We do not know? Let the man rest! While Reynolds has his break, why not check out our list of every MCU movie, ranked.
