Welcome to another weekly edition of what’s hot on Netflix. A weekly column where we run through several data points to hopefully give you a new show or movie to watch based on what others are watching. Of course, the data is completely unofficial (with one exception) but should give a good idea on what’s popular right now.
Among the big titles this week include the Sony Pictures Animated release Spider-man in the US, Netflix’s pick up of Shaft for international audiences and the regular TV shows including Black Mirror, Designated Survivor and Lucifer.
Netflix UK Top List for July 3rd
Every week (with the exception of last week for some reason) Netflix UK’s social media accounts releases a list of what’s hot on the service right now. Last Friday, Netflix internationally picked up the streaming rights to Shaft which is currently airing in cinemas in the US.
As a reminder, only the United Kingdom Netflix account announces its weekly top 10 list with the promise that if it does well, it’ll be rolled out to other regions in the future.
Things you need to know about Shaft:
– it’s streaming on @NetflixUK already
– it was the most-watched title on Netflix in the UK last week
– it features three generations of Shafts
– its *actual tagline* is “more shaft than you can handle”
– southerners pronounce it incorrectly
