There is also some new and intriguing activity going on among the most popular and best TV shows on Netflix, so let’s take a deeper look at what people are watching most on Netflix for Thursday, October 20, 2022 in today’s breakdown.

Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - October 20, 2022

Leading the pack on Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S. is a trio of the platform’s own new original filmsThe School for Good and Evil, The Curse of Bridge Hollow, and Luckiest Girl Alive — as Josh Duhamel’s Blackout descends to fourth place above Dracula Untold. The hit animated musical from 2021, Sing 2, also descended just one peg down, bringing it closer to a fellow Illumination Entertainment sequel — the second of the the Despicable Me movies — while another animated favorite — non-comic-book-inspired superhero movie, Megamind — sits between them. Last seen in ninth place was Last Seen Alive, which now rounds out the bottom under Zac Efron-led 17 Again.
