‘Freaky’ Debuts Well in Holiday Home Viewing, but ‘Mank’ Falls Short on Netflix

Ti’s almost the holiday season. It has only been one week, but we saw a lot of people watching holiday films this month. So what if it is a dreadful year, we can still find entertainment at home. And when it comes to holiday films, there is always competition to become the most viewed flick, right? However, one film to debut has failed to gain traction.

Recently, David Fincher’s Mank dropped on Netflix. It is the biopic of screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz. Critics are praising it and look like it is an Oscar contender. However, the film did not gain much response from the viewers. It dropped on Friday and showed on the top 10 list on Saturday. However, it completely vanished from the charts. And since then, it has not reappeared on the list.

Shockingly, the 2000 Adam Sandler comedy “Little Nicky” bumped Mank from 10th place. Many more films did not gain attention from the viewers. High profile originals like “Hillbilly Elegy,” “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” and “Da 5 Bloods,” debuted at first or second never made it to the list. 

Recently, we tracked four films which took the number one spot on the VOD charts like AppleTV GooglePlay, FandangoNow, and Spectrum. Among this list, two films were Premium VOD. So let’s check out these flicks.

1. Freaky

The animated retelling of Dr. Suess’s plot took the first spot at AppleTV. The film ranked high for the past few weeks on Netflix, before leaving the streaming platform. Starring Mel Gibson, Fatman is a Santa themed action comedy, which was spotted at high ranks on all four charts.
