Netflix's BRIGHT Has Strong Opening Weekend With 11 Million Views In The U.S.

The streaming giant has been releasing tons of original content in 2017, and the numbers for one of its biggest movies so far have been released. Read more about Bright's opening weekend past the jump…

David Ayer's Bright has been getting a lot of attention over the past week, mainly for the overwhelmingly negative reviews the film has received. However, the movie has been pretty popular with Netflix subscribers, with 11 million viewers watching the Will Smith movie over the course of its three-day opening weekend.
 

The movie’s audience has been fairly young, with 3.9 million viewers in the age range of 18-34 and 7 million in the 18-49 range. 56% of Bright’s viewership has been male.


The film was a pretty big gamble for Netflix, with the streaming service spending $90 million dollars on the Max Landis-penned movie.


Bright’s viewership was pretty strong over the Christmas weekend, as the movie generated more views than season 2 of historical drama The Crown, but less than sci-fi horror hit Stranger Things. Did you check out Bright this week? Comment below.
