Red Notice starring Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson

The film Red Notice has been entertaining audiences across the globe, so much so that it became the most viewed film on Netflix. The streaming giant released the metrics and number of hours spent watching the film recently. The new action-adventure film starring Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson has been watched for 148.7 million hours globally, until now, since it was released on the platform on November 12. 

The film has broken the record for the biggest opening day for any film on Netflix. Actor Ryan Reynolds shared the news on social media along with some BTS moments and stills from the film. He congratulated and thanked the entire team for their dedication and filming the movie, spending almost half the time in quarantine in hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. He wrote: "Curiously, it took exactly 148,720,000 hours to film.

Biggest opening weekend ever for @netflixfilm. Congratulations to this whole team — particularly the #RedNotice crew who spent over half the shoot sequestered in hotels. None of this is possible without those folks and their dedication to getting us all back to work during a very fucked up year. Huge thanks to each and every one of you…🚨"

The action comedy film is directed and written by Rawson Marshall Thurber. It is backed by Thurber along with Beau Flynn, Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia. The drama follows the FBI agent (Dwayne) who joins hands along with an art thief (Ryan) to hunt and capture the mastermind and most wanted criminal (Gal) after a 'red notice' is issued by Interpol. 

However, the film is yet to break the record of both Squid Game and Bird Box. The first season of Squid Game has been viewed for 1.6 billion hours and is ranked as the OTT player's most-watched series or film. Currently, the most-watched film on Netflix is Bird Box that features Sandra Bullock. It has clocked a total of 282 million viewing hours, making it the most popular film on the platform.
