So much for Netflix’s cold streak.
The streaming heavyweight just topped Whip Media’s latest movie ranker, with “Extraction 2” being the most-streamed movie in the U.S. last weekend. And for good measure, Netflix grabbed the second spot as well, thanks to “Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King.”
Netflix has more subscribers than any other streaming service, which gives it a leg up whenever it releases a movie. But the streamer was in a slight funk recently, with the company going five weeks in a row without having one of its movies top Whip Media’s ranker, its longest drought of 2023. Whip Media’s ranker is based on data from TV Time, its TV and movie tracking app with 26 million global registered users.
