A few weeks back we brought you a news story in which Netflix shelled out a whopping $50 million for the streaming rights to The Cloverfield Paradox.
If you are like me, then you’ve been wondering how that investment is paying out for the streaming giant in the wake of the resounding “thud” the film made after it hit late on Super Bowl Sunday.
Well, it seems the movie did pretty good… but nothing special (which is the general consensus to the film itself) and scored 2.8 million viewers in the first 3 days of release.
These numbers come to us from Variety, who reports that, while 2.8 million is no small number, when compared to the 11 million viewers that David Ayers’ Bright starring Will Smith pulled in late last year, The Cloverfield Paradox pales in comparison. But is it fair to compare The Cloverfield Paradox to Bright? Shrugs.
What do you think? Let us know below!
The film is directed by Julius Onah from a screenplay by Oren Uziel and Doug Jung and stars David Oyelowo, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl, and Chris O’Dowd.
The film is now streaming on Netflix.
