It’s not surprising when a Netflix original seems to fly under the radar after its release, as the streaming platform doesn’t always provide a lot of marketing to an original ahead of its premiere. Even with little promotions, however, some movies find their way to success among the masses and end up getting a substantial audience. Such is the case for the new Netflix thriller Intrusion, which has now spent some time dominating the streaming charts on Netflix.
Intrusion Is Streaming On NOW!
Starring Freida Pinto and Logan Marshall-Green, Intrusion was released on Netflix on September 22, immediately finding its success on the streaming service. As per the new numbers from Nielsen, the film is estimated to have streamed for a massive total of 331 million minutes between the time of its release and September 26. The entire week was measured by Nielsen, which began on September 20, and Intrusion managed to top all films on the streaming service despite the fact that it wasn’t available for the initial two days.
Intrusion Topped The Viewing Charts With 331 Million Minutes
Netflix had a total of five most-watched films on the platform for the week of September, with Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups ranking second with a difference of merely 40 million minutes from Intrusion. Safe House, The Starling, and My Little Pony also did well on Netflix while Luca, Cruella, and Moana also got strong ratings for Disney+.
The past years have seen thrillers performing well for Netflix, and Intrusion looks like no exception. The plot sees Pinto playing a woman named Meera Parsons, a victim of home invasion after she moved to a small town. She begins suspecting that there’s something more sinister happening beneath the surface of the town than people may realize. Marshall-Green plays the role of Henry Parsons, Pinto’s husband.
Directed by Adam Salky, who also helmed Blindspot and I Smile Back, the script for Intrusion was penned by Chris Sparling.
Here’s the official logline for the film:
“When a husband and wife move to a small town, a home invasion leaves the wife traumatized and suspicious that those around her might not be who they seem.”
