Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - October 7, 2022

Last seen at Number One on Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S. was the latest Gerard Butler movie Last Seen Alive until it was overtaken this morning by the latest Stephen King adaptation, Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, while Inheritance remains in third place, but is now followed by the Adam Devine-led comedy Jexi (making a big leap from Number Eight). The first two Rush Hour movies remain in fifth and ninth place, respectively, but fellow action-comedy Mr. & Mrs. Smith is down a couple pegs and Robin Hood and Blonde have each moved down a spot. However, the most bewildering new development to the list today is the sudden return, after six days of absence, of the hit Illumination Entertainment sequel, Sing 2, at the bottom… for now.
