"Eight of the top 10 most streamed movies on the platform came to us during lockdown, and the most successful of them all was 2021's Red Notice," the review aggregation website wrote.

"Thanks to its shiny A-list trio of Ryan Reynolds, Dwayne Johnson, and Gal Gadot, the spy action-comedy netted a whopping 364,020,000 hours of watch time in its first 28 days of release, beating its runner-up, the even more star-studded Don’t Look Up (which debuted just over a month later), by more than 4,000,000 hours."

Also in the top five were the Sandra Bullock horror Bird Box, the Knives Out sequel Glass Onion and the action thriller The Gray Man, starring Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling.

Meanwhile, rounding out the top 10 was The Adam Project, Extraction, Purple Hearts, The Unforgivable and The Irishman.
