From March 21 to 27, The Adam Project added additional 31.7 million hours of watching, according to Netflix’s weekly report on its own platform activities. That was enough to propel it to the top spot for the third consecutive week among all English-language films on the service.
Since its March 11 premiere, the comedic time-travel adventure has accumulated 209.5 million hours of streaming, placing it sixth in the Top 10 English-language films of all time. For Reynolds, this is the third film in which he has starred which has earned him the honor. Red Notice, which was released last autumn, has surpassed 364 million hours to reach the top spot, while 6 Underground has surpassed 205.5 million hours to reach No. 9.
Rescued by Ruby, a Netflix original, placed second on the English-language list for the week, ahead of Will Smith actioner Gemini Man, seemingly an appetizer for Oscar Sunday.
Netflix started disclosing streaming figures for roughly 100 countries last year, using the same criteria used by Nielsen in the United States.
The Adam Project marks the next collaboration between Reynolds and director-producer Shawn Levy, who previously worked together on Free Guy. It was revealed earlier this month that Levy would be helming Deadpool 3, assuming control of a property Reynolds starred in and cultivated for years before it erupted into the world in 2016. Despite an R rating, the first two films grossed more than $1.5 billion globally.
Marvel Studios is likely to collaborate directly with Levy and Reynolds on the third installment, a first for the series, which established itself at Fox prior to Disney’s takeover of the company in 2018.
