Ahead of 'Venom 2' release, Indians watched 'Venom' the most
As per data compiled by streaming service guide app JustWatch in between the period of September 27 to October 3, Tom Hardy's Venom ruled on top. Given the sequel to the Marvel movie, titled, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is coming to the big screens on October 14 (in India), people seem to be wanting to revise or catch up with the first part.
Jake Gyllenhaal's Netflix movie 'The Guilty' rocked the second spot
In the second spot was Jake Gyllenhaal's Netflix movie The Guilty. A fresh release, the concept of a one-room thriller definitely interested many. Also, the fact that the original 2018 Danish movie based on which this movie was created was a global sensation helped this flick's numbers. It had even received a nod at the Oscars in the Best Foreign Film category.
'Thalaivii' is the only Hindi film in top five
James Gunn's The Suicide Squad trended at the third position. After releasing in select theaters here in August, the movie is now available on YouTube Movies. Following the DCEU actioner was Kangana Ranaut's Thalaivii. This biographical drama also spent some time in the cinema halls before dropping on OTT platforms, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. It's the only Hindi film in top five.
People are binging 'Knives Out' and 'Spider-Man: Far From Home'
As seen in the case of Venom, people seem to be catching up with the prequels before the follow-throughs drop in. Examples are Knives Out and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Standing at the fifth and sixth spots, both of these have sequels coming up soon. While the Daniel Craig-led detective flick is currently in production stage, Spider-Man: No Way Home is coming this December.
Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi's 'Chehre' also made to the list
