Netflix has always been home to a vast category of films catering our needs according to our whims and fancies. Starting from whopping million dollar films like The Gray Man and to low budget movies like Purple Hearts, it airs all. Movies in spite of their huge differences serve their purpose of balancing out each other. This fact holds true as we check the top 10 most watched movies or series this month.

Every year some movies unexpectedly work wonders and bag the firsts instead of the big established names of the Industry. Speaking of which, you’ll be thrilled to know that the humble romantic story Purple Hearts gave a severe blow to one of the top-tier actors in the industry.

Purple Hearts beats Netflix giant The Gray Man to dust

As surprising as it sounds, the Purple Hearts movie surpassed this year’s most expensive film on the list making their way to the top 10.

The debuting stars who had no huge fanbase like most actors of Hollywood, took over the highly paid Marvel heroes, Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling. As per records, the total weekly viewing hours was 23.41 million. This fetches the movie a grand total of 220.61 million views. According to Netflix, this such records makes it the seventh hottest start a movie has ever had on a streaming platform.

In fact, that’s not all. Netflix lists highest totals for movies that have been on Netflix for the whole of 28 days. The above-mentioned results came when Purple Hearts was just 23 days on the streaming platform, which explicitly indicates that the numbers will grow.

In a span of next five days, this underdog can potentially beat down Netflix current giants like Day shift which now sits in the first place while The Next 365 Days is just one place away from Purple Hearts.
