A day after its premiere, one of the most intriguing new true crime documentaries on Netflix, Running with the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee, debuted on Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S. in second place between Lili Reinhart’s multiversal rom-com Look Both Ways and another revealing original doc called Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist. Another edition of Netflix’s ongoing series of feature-length sports documentaries called Untold: The Rise and Fall of And1 has fallen three spots from yesterday and is now preceded by horror-comedy Day Shift, Illumination’s enduringly popular animated sequel Sing 2, and hit video game adaptation, Uncharted. Meanwhile, the thought-provoking romance The Next 365 Days is down two spots and now sits above action thriller The Gray Man and romantic drama Purple Hearts, which have swapped place in the bottom two from yesterday.
