Move over, Reptile! Netflix has a shock new number-one movie
Netflix's latest movie hit is beating its A-list thriller right now...
Well, this is a surprise. It's hard enough getting a new movie seen on Netflix but almost impossible when there's a big Netflix Original released.
Recently we saw the launch of Reptile on Netflix, a crime thriller with an A-List cast. Starring the fantastic Benicio del Toro, the story of follows the brutal murder of a real estate agent and the detective trying to uncover the truth in the knotty case.
It made its way to the top of the charts, residing at number one for a week.
Now, according to Flix Patrol, the movie is no longer at the top of the charts, replaced with another thriller that doesn't have anywhere near the star power, but has relied on jaw-dropping storytelling to get itself to the top spot.
Nowhere is a Spanish-language thriller which has a fantastic high-concept plot: "Pregnant, alone and drifting in the sea, a woman trapped in a shipping container tries to survive after fleeing a devastated totalitarian country."
The movie is directed by Albert Pintó who is no stranger to Netflix success, as he was one of the directors on the crime show Money Heist.
Critics have been mixed about the movie - it's currently got 60% on Rotten Tomatoes - with Ready Steady Cut liking it, noting: "If you are a fan of thrillers and can only take so many horror elements, then Nowhere is the film for you."
The New York Times is less receptive, writing: "It’s hard to care about Mía’s efforts to survive when coincidence drives the plot, and the production looks and feels cheap."
Folks have taken to Twitter, though, remarking how anxiety inducing the whole thing is!
