Red Notice made a record on its opening day of becoming the most-watched film ever on the streaming service as a Netflix film. It has already been addressed as one of the most expensive movies in Netflix’s history.
The three main casts, the starry film Red Notice has spread a splash by scoring the streamer’s biggest on its releasing day. Red Notice stars Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwayne’ The Rock’ Johnson, released on 12th November.
Sharing his joy over Instagram, Reynolds wrote, ‘WOW #RedNotice is Netflix’s biggest ever opening day for a film,’ and made a toast for the record-breaking achievement. The film is proving to be a massive success for the team.
Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as ‘The Rock,’ had also joined in the celebrations and contributed by sharing a video message to Instagram, wrote ‘It’s OFFICIAL as the numbers are coming in from 190 territories around the world.’
Gadot added, ‘This is amazing!!!! What can I say, you guys are the best and the reason why we make these films. So grateful and excited!!! Congratulations, Netflix and to the entire @rednotice.movie team.’
Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, Red Notice debuted on Netflix this weekend after rolling out in select theaters the week before. It is a globe-trotting adventure made during COVID; Red Notice follows FBI profiler John Hartley (Johnson) as he teams up with wily art thief Nolan Booth (Reynolds) to track down an even more notorious thief (Gadot).
The film earned mixed-to-negative reviews from critics, but fans embrace it with a 92% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Though Red Notice didn’t exactly break the box office in its limited theatrical run, the streaming numbers seem much healthier. So that is somehow a massive relief for Netflix.
In the coming days, possibly red Notice will break the record of Extraction as the biggest Netflix movie of all time. Let’s see if the film ranks among the streamer’s top 10 most-watched films or not! With each passing day, it could become a significant hit.

The ending of Red Notice leaves the door wide open for a follow-up which probably will result in a sequel if it gets the target audience reach. Thus, Netflix will have another solid addition to its growing own film franchises.
