The Netflix action movie “Extraction” is pacing to be the streaming giant’s biggest movie premiere ever, but it was dethroned this week as the service’s most popular movie. Another Netflix original, “Dangerous Lies,” stole the crown.
Netflix introduced daily top 10 lists of its most viewed movies and TV shows in February (it counts a view if an account watches at least two minutes of a title).
Every week, the streaming search engine Reelgood compiles for Business Insider a list of which movies have been most prominent on Netflix’s daily lists that week. On Reelgood, users can browse Netflix’s entire movie library and sort by IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes ratings.
This week’s list also includes “Den of Thieves,” another movie starring Gerard Butler after his “Angel Has Fallen” enjoyed a few weeks on the list.
But the real winner this week is Netflix itself, as five of the seven movies on the list are Netflix originals.
