Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - July 22, 2022

The infectious musical comedy Sing 2 with its zany cast of characters sits atop the list of trending Netflix movies in the U.S again. This couldn’t have something to do with kids watching the movie multiple times in a row with their parents’ Netflix subscription, right? Right? Coming in at Number Two is the animated movie The Sea Beast. The Jane Austen adaptation Persuasion holds on to the Number Three spot despite backlash over its dialogue. CHIPS and 12 Strong round out the Top Five which remains unchanged from yesterday.

The second half of the top movies list has gone through some major reshuffling the past 24 hours, with the Netflix true crime documentary Girl in the Picture returning to the Number Six spot. The Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson action comedy The Man From Toronto is also on the rise, coming in at Number Seven. Pan has been knocked down a peg to the Number Eight spot, while Mean Girls did move from its place on the Netflix ladder. And new arrival Trading Paint rounds out the Top 10.

Top 10 TV Shows On Netflix In The U.S. - July 22, 2022

The list of TV shows popular on Netflix is once again highlighted by three of platform’s most popular original series, though there is a fair amount of shuffling to the order further down. Virgin River, Stranger Things, and Resident Evil remain in first, second, and third place respectively, with All American: Homecoming in the Number Four spot once again. The debut of the fifth and final season of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous brings the animated series to the list in fifth place.

The competitive reality show Alone continues to be a hit with fans though it did move to Number Six, much like Alba which sits in seventh place. The Korean courtroom drama Extraordinary Attorney Woo makes its debut at Number 8, while The Umbrella Academy and Married at First Sight each move down to ninth and tenth place on the list.

Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop barking at the mailman, or chatting about professional wrestling to his wife. Writing gigs with school newspapers, multiple daily newspapers, and other varied job experiences led him to this point where he actually gets to write about movies, shows, wrestling, and documentaries (which is a huge win in his eyes). If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
