The heist comedy movie “Red Notice”, starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot, has become its most-watched movie of all time on Netflix.
The streaming giant revealed Tuesday that the star-studded movie brought in 328.8 million viewing hours, topping the previous record held by Sandra Bullock’s “Bird Box” in 2018 with 282 million viewing hours.
The movie surpassed the previously held record in just 18 days, as opposed to “Bird Box” which took 4 weeks.
“Red Notice” debuted on the streaming giant earlier this month. It is arguably the biggest feature commitment by the streaming giant at $130M.
Universal and Legendary originally landed the project in a multi-studio auction, with Johnson paid $20M. However, the movie got snatched by the giant streamer, becoming its most expensive movie ever.
The movie revolves around FBI’s top profiler John Hartley (Johnston) who attempts to hunt down and capture the world’s most wanted art thief, ‘The Bishop’ (Gal Gadot) after an Interpol-issued Red Notice — the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted.
He finds himself involved in the middle of a daring heist and forced to partner with the infamous con man and fellow art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds).
“Red Notice” is written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, and also features Ritu Arya and Chris Diamantopolous.
Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Hiram Garcia are producing the project for Seven Bucks Productions, while Beau Flynn for FlynnPictureCo. Thurber is also producing the movie.
The movie marks the third collaboration between Thurber and Johnson after “Central Intelligence” and “Skyscraper”.
