Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - July 5, 2022

It appears that there were a good number of families who stayed in on Independence Day to watch our returning champion on Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S.: Sing 2, which is still followed by the action-comedy The Man from Toronto while Jason Statham’s Wild Card has been usurped by the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s live-action Batman movies, The Dark Knight Rises. Dave Bautista’s Final Score also switched places with the classic Will Ferrell movie Old School and now sits above the Mark Wahlberg-led Contraband and the list’s iconic newcomer Mean Girls. Meanwhile, Adam Sandler’s Hustle has travelled to the bottom below Zero Dark Thirty, which has not budged since yesterday.

Top 10 TV Shows On Netflix In The U.S. - July 5, 2022

It appears that those who preferred to stay in on the Fourth of July used that time to watch the conclusion of Stranger Things 4, while many also got caught up on the new season of The Umbrella Academy, others listened to William Shatner talk about weird stuff on The UnXplained, and a few more watched a hunt for buried treasure on the new docuseries Pirate Gold of Adak Island. Still in fifth place on Netflix’s Top 10 TV Shows in the U.S. since yesterday is the hit sitcom The Upshaws along with teen sports drama All American still at Number Eight, while reality competition Snowflake Mountain and legal thriller The Lincoln Lawyer are each a down a peg and recently ended CW fantasy Legacies is down two. They all sit below the list’s newest addition this week in sixth place: Alone - a History Channel original reality series that challenges people to survive the wilderness while in complete solitude.

  • 1. Stranger Things
  • 2. The Umbrella Academy
