Yesterday, I questioned whether or not the Ana de Armas-led Marilyn Monroe biopic, Blonde, might have a stronger debut on the Netflix Top 10 than The Munsters did and if Rob Zombie’s new take on the spooky sitcom would eventually move up in the ranks. Well, lo and behold, when we looked at the trending page this morning — Thursday, September 29, 2022 — we saw that exact scenario had occurred, and also found the great TV shows on Netflix that are trending were now bookended by original true crime series. See what other changes we found on that list and to the popular, great movies on Netflix in our breakdown below.

Top 10 Movies On Netflix In The U.S. - September 29, 2022

The day after it was made available to stream, director Andrew Dominik’s Blonde has entered the ranks of the Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the U.S. at Number One — knocking previous chart-topper Lou, Tyler Perry’s new period drama A Jazzman’s Blues, and the Matt Damon-led sci-fi action thriller Elysium each down a peg. Meanwhile, The Munsters moved up to crack the Top 5, while Mark Wahlberg’s Father Stu and stars Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes’ dark teen comedy Do Revenge each fell down two slots. However, still standing strong together in the bottom three spots are Illumination Entertainment’s own hits Despicable Me 2, Sing 2, and Minions & More 1.
