Summary List Placement

A new James Bond movie, “No Time to Die,” is set to hit theaters in November, but Netflix users aren’t wasting any time getting their 007 fix.

2008’s “Quantum of Solace,” Daniel Craig’s second outing as the character, is a hit on the streaming giant. But it’s not as popular as the 2013 Nicolas Cage-starring thriller, “The Frozen Ground,” or the Netflix original superhero movie, “Project Power.”

Netflix introduced daily top 10 lists of its most viewed movies and TV shows in February (it counts a view if an account watches at least two minutes of a title).

Every week, the streaming search engine Reelgood compiles for Business Insider a list of which movies have been most prominent on Netflix’s daily lists that week. On Reelgood, users can browse Netflix’s entire movie library and sort by IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes ratings.

Below are Netflix’s 9 most popular movies of the week in the US:
