Minions Keeps Strong Netflix Top 10 Streak Post Despicable Me 4 Release

Despicable Me 4 is currently dominating the box office as the sixth film in Illumination’s highly successful Minions franchise. This widespread success is also mirrored in home viewing habits, as another popular movie from the series maintains a strong presence on Netflix’s movie charts.

Since its release in 2015, Minions has consistently appeared on the Netflix Top 10 Movies list, a trend seen with various Despicable Me films when they join Netflix’s catalog. The recent release of Despicable Me 4 in theaters has given Minions a boost in its rankings.

In Wednesday’s edition of the Netflix Top 10 Movies list, Minions ascended to the third spot, trailing only behind the new releases Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F and A Family Affair.
