Netflix publishes the top 10 list of global and international movies and series on its official website “Top 10 on Netflix”. Here, I would like to introduce the popularity ranking in Japan this week (August 15-August 21).
First of all, in the top 10 popular movies, the horror comedy “Day Shift” starring Jamie Foxx climbs to the top! Next, “Shinobi no Kuni” starring Satoshi Ohno and Satomi Ishihara ranked second, and the thriller “The Hunt” produced by Jason Blum tied for third place. In addition, the horrifying splatter horror “Marignant: A Violent Nightmare” directed by James Wan, and “Kimi ga Otoshita Aozora” where Travis Japan’s Genta Matsuda plays the role of the heroine’s lover are also available for the first time.
This week’s number one, The Day Shift, is an action-packed horror comedy from Jamie Foxx. A Los Angeles-based vampire hunter finds himself forced to pay for his child’s tuition and braces within a week. Co-stars include Dave Franco, Megan Goode, and Snoop Dogg.
Next, in the top 10 popular series, popular Korean series such as “Lawyer Woo Yong Woo has genius skin”, “Return of the Soul”, and “Itaewon Class” ranked high, continuing from last week. In addition, the popular anime “One Piece” series, which has released the latest theatrical version and has finally entered the final chapter, is also very popular. The new drama series ‘Model Family’ starring Jung Woo from ‘Reply 1994’ is ranked 4th for the first time.
