Red Notice Just Shattered A Stunning Netflix Record

With prestige movies like Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman," and stylish genre movies like Jeymes Samuel's star-studded Western "The Harder They Fall," Netflix is constantly upping its movie game. The streaming platform's feature-length output is a genuine force to be reckoned with, and it looks like the company has no intention of pumping the brakes any time soon. 

One of the most impressive recent flexes on the Netflix movie front is without doubt "Red Notice." The hard-hitting action comedy stars Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot, and tells the story of FBI profiler John Hartley (Johnson) and slick art thief Nolan Booth (Reynolds), who have to join forces in order to deal with the mysterious Bishop (Gadot). With a trio of bona fide A-listers at its disposal, the movie is an intensely entertaining watch from start to finish. Netflix viewers have certainly taken note, and it looks like "Red Notice" just managed to shatter a pretty stunning Netflix record. 

The biggest opening day in Netflix movie history

Putting three of the most famous movie stars around in the same movie turned out to be a pretty good move, seeing as "Red Notice" just broke the record for biggest opening day in Netflix history, at least when it comes to movies. Star Ryan Reynolds was over the moon about the record on his official Twitter account. "WOW," Reynolds tweeted. "#RedNotice is @Netflix biggest ever opening day for a film. Congrats to this whole team!" He also threw in a fun bonus reference to Taylor Swift's recent re-release of the "Red" album. "Can't wait for Red Notice (Taylor's Version)," the tweet concluded. 

Dwayne Johnson was equally excited, and remembered to pay extra attention to the fact that the audiences genuinely seem to love it. "RED NOTICE shatters opening day records for NETFLIX around the world." Johnson enthused in a tweeted. "With outstanding 92% AUDIENCE SCORE!! This was @sevenbucksprod's first deliverable for a streaming platform. Critical we delivered for your families worldwide. THANK YOU!!! dj."

Though critics haven't been particularly kind to "Red Notice," the movie's audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is indeed sky high, just like Johnson mentioned. As the movie's record-breaking debut proves, plenty of people have watched it, too, so the public has certainly spoken in this case.
