The Adam Project makes history on Netflix


By Ray Ampoloquio March 16, 2022

Ryan Reynolds just can't seem to miss.

After working with Shawn Levy with last year's Free Guy, the two teamed up again for a Netflix-exclusive sci-fi adventure film, The Adam Project.

Although the expectations were almost always high with Reynolds, as well as the 13 going 30 on-screen couple, Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo, in tow, The Adam Project is blowing past all expectations.

The Adam Project just scored itself the 3rd-highest debut for a Netflix original movie. 

Using hours watched within the first week as a metric, the film pulled in 92.4 million hours a week after debuting last March 11.

The success of The Adam Project also bodes well for Reynolds' future projects, specifically, with Disney.

The Adam project proved that Reynolds can pull off family-oriented entertainment just as well as his more "popular" R-rated films like Deadpool, among others.

It also doesn't hurt that he's bringing Levy along with him, who was recently confirmed as Deadpool 3's director.

As for Reynolds' future with Netflix, we can be sure that the streaming platform will come knocking again.
