Red Notice has already proven to be a massive hit for Netflix, with the largest opening day of any film on the platform. After a limited theatrical release the week before, Rawson Marshall Thurber’s Red Notice premiered this weekend on Netflix. A star-studded cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot. John Hartley (Johnson) joins forces with wily art thief Nolan Booth (Reynolds) to track down an even more notorious thief (Gadot) in Red Notice.
Despite earning average to negative reviews from critics, Red Notice got a 92 percent Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score from fans. Red Notice was hailed by its creators and actors as one of the biggest original movies Netflix has ever produced leading up to its release. As a result, there were great hopes for its success. While Red Notice’s limited theatrical run didn’t exactly break the bank, its streaming figures appear to be much better.

Netflix will be relieved, especially since Red Notice had a significant budget. Only time will tell where the film stands among the streaming service’s top 10 most-watched films, but it appears to have carved out its own niche.
Extraction Currently Rules The Spot The Most Popular Netflix Film Of All Time
Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth, is currently the most popular Netflix film of all time, but Red Notice may overtake it. Although Red Notice’s record is only for one day, As more subscribers seek it out in the coming weeks, it could become a massive hit.
It’s possible that it’s still too early to tell if Red Notice is a complete success, but it’s possible that a sequel will be made. The ending of Red Notice leaves the door open for a sequel, and if the film continues to draw a crowd, it’s safe to assume Netflix will want to capitalise on it.
