Ryan Reynolds has now been announced as the only actor to have three movies in the top 10 of most popular English-language films in their first 28 days with the addition of his new movie ’The Adam Project’. The Shawn Levy-directed movie joins '6 Underground' at number nine and 'Red Notice,' at number one which gives Ryan Reynolds his three top 10.
Ryan Reynolds was previously tied with Sandra Bullock, who has two original Netflix movies on the list: ‘Bird Box’ and the more recent ‘The Unforgivable’, but the news that arrived on Tuesday sees Ryan Reynolds in top spot.
Not only does Ryan Reynolds break a Netflix record but so does ‘The Adam Project’ director Shawn Levy who is the only producer-director with a show on the most popular English TV list (Stranger Things) and a film on the most popular film list. Shawn Levy has an exclusive TV deal with Netflix and a first-look film pact.
‘The Adam Project’ which is a time-traveling adventure, was a passion project for both Shawn Levy and Ryan Reynolds, who are named among the movie’s credited producers. The duo have become filmmaking friends, who also teamed on ‘Free Guy’, a breakout hit at the box office during the pandemic that is now racking up big viewership numbers on Disney+.
