Netflix announced in November 2021 (in no small part thanks to the success of Squid Game) that it would be publishing a weekly list detailing its most popular movies over a seven-day period. 

Ranking titles based on weekly hours viewed – i.e. the total number of hours subscribers around the world watched each title between Monday and Sunday of the previous week – Netflix regularly shares four separate lists; two for movies (English and Non-English) and two for TV shows (English and Non-English).

Whether or not the best Netflix movies make it to the top of these charts is up to the streamer’s viewing public – and feature-length documentaries have been known to sneak into the rankings, too – but below, we’ve rounded up the 10 most popular English-speaking movies on the streamer this past week.
