“Coming 2 America” Got More Viewers Than Any Other Streaming Movie Premiere

It’s unclear how big of a role STREAMING movie premieres will have going forward . . . now that more theaters are opening across the country.  But there have been some successes.

According to an analytics firm, the sequel “Coming 2 America” attracted more viewers than any other movie that premiered on a streaming service over the past year.  It debuted on Amazon Prime last weekend.

That means it did better than “Wonder Woman 1984”“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”, and “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run”, which also debuted last weekend, but on Paramount+.  No official numbers were released.

Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” was also released last weekend . . . but it wasn’t included in the report.  That’s probably because it was both in theaters AND on Disney+.  And you had to pay an extra $30 to stream it.

Of course, Amazon could SAY how many people watched it . . . but instead, they just pointed to the report claiming it was #1.  That’s not surprising though, the streaming services are notorious for not releasing specific numbers.

Amazon previously paid $125 million for the exclusive rights to the movie.
