Netflix’s “The Cloverfield Paradox” has reportedly drawn in five million viewers in its first week following the surprise drop of the movie after the Superbowl.
According to Nielsen data, the film garnered 2.8 million U.S. viewers in the first three days, a far cry from the 11 million who tuned in for the Will Smith-led “Bright” in its first three days of release.
The new ‘Cloverfield’ follows the crew aboard a space station which finds itself alone after a scientific experiment causes the Earth to disappear. Paramount sold “The Cloverfield Paradox” to Netflix in a reported $50 million deal.
‘Cloverfield’ was also behind the 5.9 million viewers who turned in to watch the premiere of the sci-fi drama series “Altered Carbon” during its first week on the service. At present over one million of those who’ve tuned in have completed the ten-episode freshman season.
