The year of 2019 was a a big one for Netflix's movies. A-list actors and filmmakers assembled for titles released on the streaming service, allowing viewers to watch their opening weekends from the comfort of their own living rooms rather than paying to watch them in a movie theater. The brand invested heavily in original titles to combat the launching of other streaming services, building well-known titles of its own not only in series form but also in single-outing movie form. Stars such as Adam Sandler signed multi-picture deals while filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese and Michael Bay launched their work on the service.
Now, Netflix has released a list of the 10 most-watched movie titles released on their platform in 2019, consisting of both original films and licensed movies from other studios.
The list can be seen, starting at number 10 and continuing through the most watched title, below!
