‘The Gray Man’ Has Massive Debut on Netflix – ScreenCrush

Given that Netflix just announced a sequeland a spinoff a few hours ago, this news is not very surprising. But now its official:The Gray Man is the top film on the streaming service.

Globally, Netflix users watched 88.5 million hours of the film last week. The movie was among the top ten films on Netflix in 93 different countries including Austria, Panama, Luxembourg, Egypt, Kenya, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Morocco, and of course the United States. Of those 93 countries, it was the #1 film in 84 different nations.

Given its solid debut and the fact that the film was only available starting on Friday and not even the entire week it looks as thoughThe Gray Man stands a very good shot to wind up on NetflixsMost Popular Films list, which is comprised of the movies which had the most hours viewed in their first 28 days on the service. #10 on the list currently is the Mark Wahlberg thriller Spenser Confidentialwith 197.3 million hours.

As impressive as 88 million hours is, and as much as Netflix is confident enough in the movie to launch a whole franchise ofGray Man projects, it is not the biggest debut for a film ever on the service. Last year, the caper movieRed Noticewith Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot debuted with 148 million hours in its firstweekend on the service, and wound upat the top of that Most Popular Films list with 364 million hours viewed by Netflix subscribers in its first month of release.The Gray Manwould have to have incredible word-of-mouth to reach those kinds of numbers.

Here is Netflixs current Most Popular Films list:

Earlier today, Netflix confirmed a sequel is coming starring Ryan Gosling and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. They are also working on an undisclosed spinoff film set inThe Gray Manuniverse.
