At this point, I have lost track of just how long Sing 2 has, somehow, endured its fascinatingly lengthy tenure on the Netflix Top 10. The story continues today — Thursday, August 11, 2022 — as Illumination’s hit 2021 musical sequel has only increased in popularity on the Top 10 Movies in the U.S. There is even more to report regarding the platform’s Top 10 TV Shows in the U.S., so let’s get into what is trending on Netflix in our following breakdown.

Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - August 11, 2022

While 2022’s hit cinematic Uncharted adaptation, the romantic new Netflix original movie Purple Hearts, and 2019’s action-packed The Informer are still dominating the the Top Three of Netflix Top 10 Movies, the biggest win on the list today goes to Sing 2 — which continues its surprisingly long reign by succeeding Denzel Washington’s Flight in fourth place. Also experiencing an uptick in popularity are Ryan Gosling movies The Gray Man (which jumped from eighth place to sixth place) and The Nice Guys (which jumped from ninth to eighth) as new romantic comedy Wedding Season sits in between them. Meanwhile, thrilling South Korean movie Carter is down three spots at Number Nine and above The Age of Adaline, which is still living at the bottom.
