You don’t always need extensive promotion for a Netflix original to make an impression with viewers. A couple of big stars are often all it takes, as was the case with Me Time, starring Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg. The film was released on Friday with minimal hype, yet still managed to be successful.
On Monday, the Netflix Top 10 Movies List featured Me Time as the most popular film on the entire service. Even before its premiere, Me Time surpassed films like Look Both Ways and Day Shift to claim the top ten places.
With Wahlberg and Hart as its leads, it’s likely that Me Time will benefit from each actor’s existing fan base. It’ll be interesting to see how long Me Time remains in the Top 10 over the following weeks.
