Sometimes it takes a movie a few days to climb through the Netflix Top 10. A two-hour feature film can have a hard time stacking up against TV shows with multiple seasons. That wasn't the cast for Netflix's latest original film, The Harder They Fall. The Jeymes Samuel-directed western, starring Jonathan Majors and Idris Elba, was released on Netflix on November 3rd. It only took one day for the film to become a hit, taking over as the new Netflix Top 10 leader.
Thursday's edition of the Netflix Top 10 features The Harder They Fall at Number One, beating out the likes of longtime chart-toppers You and Squid Game. People love action, but it's likely the all-star cast that helped give The Harder They Fall the Netflix crown.
Majors leads the cast as Nat Love, a man on a mission to find the outlaw responsible for killing his family. That outlaw is Rufus Buck, played by Elba. The rest of the absolutely stacked cast includes Regina King, Zazie Beetz, Lekeith Stanfield, RJ Cyler, Edu Gathegi, and Delroy Lindo.
The Harder They Fall seems to be an immediate hit for Netflix, and it will be interesting to see how long it can hang around the Top 10, especially with quite a few new titles arriving in November.
