Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - August 31, 2022

Audiences continue to not be deterred by most critics’ opinions of returning Top 10 Movies champion Me Time and have their hearts captured by the romantic That’s Amor. Both of these hit new Netflix movies are now followed by the recently premiered Untold: Operation Flagrant Foul, whose predecessor, Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist, remains on the list, in seventh place. Meanwhile, Sing 2 continues to rise in the ranks, having swapped places with multiversal rom-com Look Both Ways. Taking the biggest dip in popularity on the list is the chaotic new doc, Running with the Devil: The Wild World of John McAfee, which has now slowed down to ninth place between the vampiric comedy Day Shift and the hit video game adaptation, Uncharted.

Top 10 TV Shows On Netflix In The U.S. - August 31, 2022

True crime is still a hot commodity, however, as the debut of I Am a Killer Season 3 at Number Two on Netflix’s Top 10 TV Shows below Echoes will prove. The docuseries caused legal dramedy Partner Track and Neil Gaiman’s new DC TV show The Sandman to each sink slightly, while Spanish-language drama High Heat remains in fifth, but is now followed by the new Selling Sunset spin-off, Selling the OC. Stranger Things is also down a peg, taking the place of fact-based, A24-produced dramedy Mo as it moves to the bottom spot, while Never Have I Ever and Virgin River remain in eight and ninth, respectively.
