We might have said Red Notice delivers “mediocre pleasures that feel wholly algorithm-driven” in our ★★★ review, but Netflix’s most expensive blockbuster delivered where it mattered for the streaming giants by registering the biggest opening day ever for a movie.
The three headline stars took to their respective social media accounts to announce the news, which doesn’t provide much in terms of hard viewing statistics, but does include Reynolds trademark wit in comparing the films achievements to that of Taylor Swift’s recent streaming success.

Let us know if you’ve watched Red Notice during its opening weekend, and what you thought of the big-budget blockbuster by heading to our social channels @FlickeringMyth…
When an Interpol-issued Red Notice — the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted— goes out, the FBI’s top profiler John Hartley (Dwayne Johnson) is on the case. His global pursuit finds him smack dab in the middle of a daring heist where he’s forced to partner with the world’s greatest art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) in order to catch the world’s most wanted art thief, “The Bishop” (Gal Gadot). The high-flying adventure that ensues takes the trio around the world, across the dance floor, trapped in a secluded prison, into the jungle and, worst of all for them, constantly into each other’s company.
Red Notice is available to stream on Netflix now.
