Netflix invested $90 Million on the production of Bright, a not likely hybrid of pal police film and high dream. Will that financial investment settle? Gut, Nielsen has actually launched some preliminary viewership numbers, reporting that the movie reached 11 million U.S. audiences in its very first 3 Tage.
The company revealed its strategies to determine Netflix’ s audience back in October. Ever since, es’ s stated that the very first episode of Stranger Things 2 reached 15.8 million individuals in its very first 3 Tage, while the 2nd season best of The Crown reached almost 3 million audiences in the exact same timespan.
Netflix has actually contested these numbers, stating that Nielsen is just recording a portion of the overall, however the streaming service doesn’ t release any viewership information of its own.
As for Bright, Nielsen states 7 million audiences were in between 18 und 49 years of ages, während 56 percent were male and 44 percent woman.
The movie stars Will Smith as a Los Angeles police officer, with Joel Edgerton (under heavy makeup) as his orc-ish partner, and Noomi Rapace as an atrocious fairy. It reunites Smith with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer, and much like Suicide Squad, es’ s gotten scathing evaluations — IndieWire’ s David Ehrlich explained it as “ exceptionally terrible. ” (Wir ’ re preparing to evaluate it on a future episode of the Original Content podcast , however in the meantime, I will state this: Bright is bad, however not as bad as Suicide Squad.)
Looks like those evaluations didn’ t discourage audiences from having a look at the motion picture, however it stays to be seen whether Bright will continue to draw an audience — and whether that audience will have any interest in seeing the currently greenlit follow up .
