As soon as Netflix announced that Army of the Dead is going to enter the top 10 most-watched movies, we thought that it would take a dive into how well the movie is performing on Netflix. Here is all that you should know.
Before we get into the top 10 list, here is a quick recap. Army of the Dead is the movie that premiered on Netflix on May 21st, 2021. This is the movie that kicks off the big summer 2021 movie schedule. Army of the Dead is a spiritual successor to Dawn of the Dead from 2004. However, it is different from Dawn of the Dead but yes, it is a successor.
It was not a perfect movie and review scores suggest that the split is in opinions too. The movie came out in the same year when the Justice League of Zack Synder was out. Justice League is a remake of the 2017 film that left audiences and critics very disappointed that Zynder was there to leave the project. Warner Bros is yet to release any stats for Justice League apart from vague statements about doing well.
Now, before we jump into the top 10 data, we should point out that top 10 data is only one part of the puzzle when it comes to finding the most-viewed Netflix movies. It does not provide figures of how many people are watching but the ranking is given in the order the movie is being watched by the people. With this, there are inherent flaws but still it is fun to dig in.
On 28th May 2021, it was announced that the movie Army of the Dead is on course to hit 72 million hits and was placed on the 9th number in the list of top 10. This can still be adjusted up and down after the first 28 days are up.
