Killers of the Flower Moon Has to Settle for Second Place Debut

Welcome to another weekly installment of Couch Potato, where I go over what went down on the big and small screens so you can be a better-informed viewer.

Despite his best efforts to promote this picture, Scorsese had to settle for second place as Killers of the Flower Moon could not unseat Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour retained its spot at the top of the box office, earning $31 million in its second weekend in a fairly decent hold. Meanwhile, Killers of the Flower Moon brought in $23 million in its opening weekend, despite the backing of cinephiles everywhere. Finally, The Exorcist: Believer rounded out the “Top of the Top 10”, reminding everyone that horror does still exist to those who are even interested with a measly $5.6 million, with only one weekend left before Halloween. 

Moving over to streaming, let’s take a look at Netflix’s movies chart. Reptile remained at number-one this week with an additional 14.2 million views in its third-straight week in the Top 10. Fair Play was able to close the gap a little bit this week, though, with 14 million views earning it second place. Finally, Gemini Man climbed up the list as its been in there for four straight weeks, but this week it was able to snag a spot in the “Top of the Top 10” with 5.3 million views.

Alternatively, the series chart also had some moderate numbers this week as well. Beckham enjoyed its second-straight week at the top of the charts with another 54 million hours viewed. This left newcomer, The Fall of the House of Usher in second place with 51 million hours viewed in its debut. Rounding out the “Top of the Top 10,” we have Sex Education, which continues its impressive run in its fourth consecutive week in this list, with another 32 million hours viewed on its final season.

Next week, all eyes are on Five Nights at Freddy’s, which might be able to actually ride the perfect storm of its cult following mixed with coming out on Halloween weekend to a number one debut against such strong competition. I’ll be sure to report on its performance to keep you all posted. 

Stay tuned for that, and until next time, happy viewing!
