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

We still have yet to see anyone take down the triple threat of Father Stu, Do Revenge, and This is the End from the leading spots of Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S., but short film collection Minions & More 1 has certainly gotten close, having surpassed its feature-length Illumination counterpart Despicable Me 2, which is now followed by 2013’s YA fantasy novel adaptation The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones at Number Six. Meanwhile, Sing 2 is, surprisingly, down a peg and followed by the first of the Despicable Me movies, which is actually up a peg today. Jared Leto’s Morbius, however, is down two spots from yesterday and is followed by I Used to Be Famous, which continues to round out the bottom… for now.
