Netflix’s Red Notice is now the streamer’s most-watched movie of all time, according to star Dwayne Johnson, who posted about the film’s success on Instagram Thursday, celebrating by toasting with a glass of his own Teremana tequila.
The 49-year-old former WWE wrestler thanked his fans for their support. “Guys, you have turned Red Notice into a truly iconic, global, and cultural phenomenon,” he said during his speech. “In just 11 days, you have made Red Notice the biggest movie in the history of Netflix. Like an unstoppable force, you are also making Red Notice the most-watched property in the history of Netflix in film or in television.”
The Rock then raised the toast to his followers before taking a sip and saying, “That is good sh*t.” Meanwhile, as of this past Wednesday, People reported that Red Notice had been watched for nearly 278 million hours while Bird Box, which starred Sandra Bullock has been watched for an approximated 282 million hours.
Red Notice centers around an Interpol agent that chases after a wanted art thief in search of a golden egg once belonging to Cleopatra. Alongside Johnson, Red Notice also stars Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot. We’re the Millers’ director Rawson Marshall Thurber wrote and directed the movie. The movie was released on November 5 in theatres and hit the streaming giant on November 12.
However, last week, Netflix announced the action movie had the ‘biggest opening day’ of any of its movies. Ryan Reynolds responded to the news in a tweet writing, “WOW #RedNotice is @Netflix biggest ever opening day for a film. Congrats to this whole team! Can’t wait for Red Notice (Taylor’s Version).” However, Red Notice is also the most expensive movie Netflix has ever made. It cost the studio $200 million.
