Top 10 Week of June 12: Chris Hemsworth's 'Extraction 2' Tops All Views
NETFLIX TOP 10 UPDATE:
We heard feedback that only providing hours viewed on our Top 10 lists was hard to contextualize, so over the last few months we started to share the views for a good number of our titles (i.e. the number of hours viewed divided by the total run time).
This proved to be a more relatable metric for many people, so starting today, while we will continue to show hours viewed per title, our Top10 lists will now be ranked by views. We will also extend the qualifying time for our most popular lists from around one month (28 days) to three months (91 days) given that many of our shows and films grow significantly over time.
As we have always said there is no one perfect streaming metric. But we believe that views combined with total hours viewed is a good evolution because it's:
Anchored in engagement - our best measure of member satisfaction and a key driver of retention (which in turn drives our business);
Ensures longer titles don't get an advantage; and
Enables third parties to compare the relative impact of movies and series - despite their different run times.
Our hope is that by being consistent and transparent about what people are watching, Netflix can give everyone - consumers, creators, analysts and press - better insights into what success in streaming looks like more generally. We will continue to share more granular, title-specific data with creators, and as always, we'll continue to listen to feedback.
TOP 10 LISTS: June 12 - June 18
Fans enjoyed a double dose of Chris Hemsworth as the Extraction franchise took the top two spots on the English Films List. Debuting this week with nearly 43M views (88.38M hours viewed divided by 2.07 runtime hours), Extraction 2 kept viewers on the edge of their seats with a 21-minute action oner, making the hard-hitting sequel the most viewed title this week. Based on the graphic novel Ciudad, the first installment of Extraction re-entered the Top 10 list with over 9M views this week. Hemsworth announced this weekend at Tudum: A Global Fan Event that a third film is in the works. And six weeks after its premiere, action-thriller The Mother continued to show staying power with over 123M total views.
Season 4 of Never Have I Ever starring Maitreyi Ramakrishnan (who was also one of our Tudum emcees) jumped into the #1 spot on the English TV List with 11.5M views.
