Will Smith‘s new Sci-Fi action flick ‘Bright’ has been receiving rather dark reviews. However, new figures show that it’s proving a hit with viewers.
Full story below…
Perhaps in a bid to buffer the almost unanimously terrible commentary from critics, Netflix have broken long-held protocol to reveal viewership numbers for the police thriller.
According to the service, the big budget movie (which sees the platform push ahead with its bid to rival cinema releases) drew an average minute U.S. audience of 11 million TV viewers during its first three days on the service.
The film, which was heavily promoted and launched on December 22nd, no doubt benefitted in earnest from the holiday window.
It’s audience is leaning on the younger side, with 18-34 year olds accounting for 7 million of said views.
Polarizing response aside, the numbers don’t lie. So…congrats?
