Texas Chainsaw Massacre was Netflix’s No. 2 movie in the first weekend


It is in the summer of 2021 that netflix acquired Chainsaw Massacre from Legendary Pictures, a sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original classic that was originally going to make its way to theaters. Instead, of course, the movie ended up arriving exclusively on Netflix on Friday, February 18, and Netflix’s first streaming numbers arrived today.

Please note that these figures only reflect the period between February 14 and February 20, so what we are looking at here is only an overview of the new Chainsaw Massacre performance of the film in the first three days of its release. But the math is right here, with Chainsaw Massacre ranks second in Netflix‘s global rankings for the entire week.

According to Netflix, Chainsaw Massacre was viewed by subscribers for 29,180,000 hours last week, just behind The Tinder scammer and its 34,450,000 hours seen.

Last week, Chainsaw Massacre broke into Netflix’s “Top 10 in Movies” rankings in 94 different countries, in the United States, Europe, Africa and Asia.

The streaming service explains how it all works: “Every Tuesday, we release four Global Top 10 lists for Films and TV: Film (English), TV (English), Film (Non-English) and TV (Non-English) . These lists rank titles by weekly hours watched: the total number of hours our members around the world watched each title Monday through Sunday of the previous week. »

Again, we are only dealing with the first three days of Chainsaw Massacre‘s here, so next week’s numbers will give us a clearer picture of how the new movie is doing on Netflix. But the news is certainly good so far, and Netflix is ​​probably feeling pretty good about its decision to acquire Chainsaw Massacre from Legendary last year.

Will they order a sequel? We wouldn’t be surprised to see it.
