Dwayne Johnson Says Red Notice Has Become 'The Biggest Movie In The History Of Netflix'

Dwayne Johnson has made a pretty huge claim about his film with Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot.

People have been absolutely loving their Netflix film Red Notice and The Rock said it's notched an impressive record on the streaming platform.

He posted a hilarious clip of him and Reynolds in the movie and added in the caption: "Here's my slick talkin' frenemy @vancityreynolds and I, giving you a taste of why RED NOTICE has officially become THE BIGGEST MOVIE IN THE HISTORY OF NETFLIX!!!

"In under two weeks, we've shattered all records and we have many weeks to go. THANK YOU GUYS and enjoy RED NOTICE this weekend around the world."

The action-comedy film sees the three Hollywood A-listers involved in an art heist, although - as is so often the case - there's a bit more to it than that, and not everything is as it seems.

There's no denying Red Notice is popular as it's currently number one in 93 countries.

When you combine its limited theatrical run as well as all the streams on Netflix, viewers have racked up an impressive 277.9 million hours of watching the film. If you were wondering, that equates to more than 31,702 years.

The current view rate means that it ranks second on the leaderboard for highest hourly 28-day debut in Netflix history behind Bird Box.

The Sandra Bullock film pulled in 282 million hours of views, or 32,172 years, which means Red Notice isn't too far off and still has a bit to go before their 28 days are up.

Interestingly, Polygon said Red Notice has been watched by more people than Avengers: Endgame when you compare the films on the first two weeks. That's a fairly decent claim considering just how massive that Marvel blockbuster was.

It hasn't taken long for people to beg Netflix for a Red Notice sequel and, judging by how well the original has done, that wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility.

It's perfectly set up for it too, because - without giving too much away - there's plenty of room to work with for a second film as there's a twist at the very end of the tale.

Writer, director and creator of Red Notice, Rawson Marshall Thurber, recently revealed the wheels are in motion to get another instalment in the franchise.

"I'm not working on the script for a sequel...I've certainly been noodling with what I would do for a follow-up and not to telltale out of school but yeah Netflix...we've been having those conversations," the director told Collider.
