Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

As part of its quarterly earnings report, Netflix revealed that both Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead” and the comic book adaptation “Sweet Tooth” pulled in big numbers for the service.

‘Army’ reportedly had 75 million members worldwide checking out the film in its first four weeks of release.

The streamer reported 209.18 million global subscribers (and $7.34 billion in revenue) at the end of the quarter, meaning 36% of the user base checked out the film for at least two minutes of viewing time (long enough to demonstrate intentional choice).

Kevin Hart’s drama “Fatherhood” was close behind with 74 million, while “The Mitchells vs. the Machines” with 53 million views was the streamer’s biggest animated feature film to date.

On the series front, “Sweet Tooth” saw 60 million accounts tuning in followed by “Shadow and Bone” at 55 million views and “Lupin: Part Two” at 54 million views.

Netflix plans to release the ‘Dead’ prequel film “Army of Thieves” in the fourth quarter of this year and a spinoff anime series later in 2022. Check out the just-released first poster for ‘Thieves’ below.
