It is always a delight to see a movie that went under the radar when it first came out earn a new lease on life on the Netflix Top 10, and many, many recent examples of this come to mind. However, curiously, most of these sorts of films that make a surprise appearance on Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S. tend to be action thrillers or crime dramas - such as 2013’s The Call with Halle Berry - but that is not the case for Wednesday, July 13, 2022. See what genre this new trending title on Netflix is, as well as what the Top 10 TV Shows on Netflix look like today, in our following breakdown below.

Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - July 13, 2022

Making its debut on Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S. today in the bottom spot is Barefoot - a 2014 romantic comedy starring Westworld’s Evan Rachel Wood as a psych patient asked by her hospital’s janitor (Underworld cast member Scott Speedman) to pose as his girlfriend. Other than the 2012 live-action Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises swapping places with Valley of the Dead - a Spanish-language period war film… with zombies - the list looks relatively identical to yesterday with animated returning champion The Sea Beast still reigning above the true crime documentary it recently usurped, Girl in the Picture, and followed by Chris Hemsworth’s 12 Strong and animated hit sequel Sing 2. Enduringly popular teen comedy Mean Girls is, once again, in fifth place above Netflix’s new action-comedy The Man from Toronto and the often comedic 2008 action thriller Wanted.
