“Last Seen Alive” is currently the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.
Formerly known as ‘Chase’, the action thriller stars Gerard Butler, who also produced the film. Butler plays a man who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his wife at a gas station. Although the film was critically acclaimed upon its release in June, “Last Seen Alive” appears to be finding a more favorable audience after joining Netflix on October 1st.
In second place is ‘Blonde’, the fictional biopic based on Joyce Carol Oates’ 2000 novel. Ana de Armas stars as Marilyn Monroe, alongside a cast that includes Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale and Xavier Samuel . Despite praise for de Armas’ performance, critics have taken issue with the film’s depiction of the icon’s life.
Other trendy movies of the moment include “Inheritance,” a 2020 thriller about a lawyer (played by Lily Collins) who uncovers a web of family secrets after her wealthy father dies. Simon Pegg, Connie Nielsen, Chace Crawford and Patrick Warburton also appear in the film, which received generally unfavorable reviews from critics.
There’s also “Lou,” a Netflix original movie. Starring Allison Janney and Jurnee Smollett, this action thriller follows a mother who teams up with her mysterious owner to rescue her kidnapped daughter. And “Father Stu” is a biographical drama about boxer-turned-Catholic priest Stuart Long. The film premiered in theaters in April before joining Netflix in September.
