netflix's most popular titles

Netflix has long been averse to releasing viewership statistics for its original titles, but the streaming giant is never reluctant to toot its own horn when it comes to “popularity.” And with the streaming field set to become more splintered than ever before in 2020 — with newcomers like Disney+, Apple TV+, HBO Max, Peacock, and Quibi poised to threaten the current dominion held by Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu — it’s fitting for Netflix to make a show of strength with its annual “most popular” list. And the list of Netflix’s most popular titles of 2019 is a great indicator of what’s in store for us in the future: more Netflix originals, more Stranger Things, and lots of Adam Sandler taking expensive vacations with his friends.

6 Underground Trailer

Michael Bay has been very busy since giving us one of the worst installments in the Transformers franchise. The director went from Los Angeles to Italy to the United Arab Emirates to shoot the action movie starring Ryan Reynolds, and now he’s delivered the first trailer for 6 Underground, a movie about six people who form a vigilante squad after faking their deaths, all so they can take down some of the most notorious criminals at large. If they simply called this movie 6 Batmans, they’d probably make $6 billion.

Anyway, watch the first 6 Underground trailer below. Read More »
