Netflix’s recently released stats reveal that “The Adam Project” has swiftly become one of their most-watched originals, securing the fourth-largest debut in the streaming giant’s history with 233.15 million views in its first 28 days. This achievement cements Ryan Reynolds’ dominance on the platform, with the actor now holding three spots in the top 10 most-watched Netflix Originals.

Only surpassed by Reynolds-starrer “Red Notice,” which garnered 364 million views in its debut month, “The Adam Project” marks Reynolds’ third entry in the top 10, along with “6 Underground” and the chart-topper “Red Notice.”

The futuristic sci-fi blockbuster features Reynolds as the titular character, Adam the pilot, who travels back in time to meet his younger self, portrayed by Walker Scobell. The star-studded cast includes Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Garner, Zoe Saldana, and Catherine Kenner.

Praised for its emotional impact, the movie has garnered a substantial fanbase, with viewers expressing their sentiments on social media. The film’s theme draws inspiration from 1980s classics like “E.T” and “The Goonies,” offering a nostalgic yet universally appealing experience.

In an interview with the Hollywood News Reporter, Reynolds expressed gratitude for Netflix’s commitment to original storytelling, highlighting the movie’s old-fashioned charm and ’80s wish-fulfillment vibe.

“The Adam Project” originated in 2012 with plans to cast Tom Cruise as the lead. In 2020, Netflix acquired the rights, bringing on director Shawn Levy, known for “Free Guy” and the “Night at the Museum” series. The success of their collaboration has further solidified with their upcoming project, “Deadpool 3.”

As “The Adam Project” continues its ascent in Netflix rankings, speculation arises about a potential sequel. By March 29, it had already claimed the seventh spot among the most-popular English-language movies on the platform.

With commercial success and sustained viewership, the possibility of “The Adam Project 2” remains on the horizon, showcasing Netflix’s continued collaboration with Ryan Reynolds and his team in the streaming world.
