As The Adam Project continues to roar on the streaming platform Netflix, the film has recently got Ryan Reynolds, its lead star, another achievement. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Adam Project, Ryan Reynolds has become the first actor to have three films on Netflix’s All-Time Top 10 List. The Adam Project marks Ryan’s third film to achieve this feat, with two more of his films standing tall on the list of top ten movies that people are streaming on Netflix, making him one of the most entertaining actors of the time.
Within only three weeks of its release on Netflix, The Adam Project has reached the Number 7 spot on the platform. On the other hand, his crime-comedy film Red Notice (co-starring Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot) remains at Number 1 spot, ruling the platform for now about four months after its release. The third Reynolds film to remain on the list is his action-thriller 6 Underground, which has maintained its position in the top listing even after more than two years of release. Given that these other two Ryan Reynolds films have stayed among the top for a long while now, there are chances that The Adam Project could rise to the top five entries in the coming weeks.
With three films on the top ten list at Netflix, Reynolds broke Sandra Bullock’s record, who had two films on the list, Bird Box and The Unforgivable.
The Adam Project is a Win-Win for Ryan Reynolds and Shawn Levy
The feat also brings happy news to producer-director Shawn Levy. As a producer, Shawn Levy has become the first and only person to have a project on Netflix’s All-Time Top 10 list for both films and television. While The Adam Project has just joined the league of Netflix’s elites, his show Stranger Things has maintained a cult status and a massive fan following ever since the first season. The show is likely to amass further recognition as its final two seasons will be available to stream soon on the platform.
Shawn Levy and Ryan Reynolds have become quite a successful director-actor duo. They both have given a similar hit with Disney’s Free Guy, which, after a breakout box-office success during the pandemic, also became one of the most-watched films on Disney+, amassing surplus viewership for the Netflix competitor.
Interestingly, the duo is set to reunite right away, this time on the most anticipated Marvel Studios project. Not too long after The Adam Project was released on Netflix, Ryan Reynolds took to Instagram to drop hints about his next project with Levy, which was later confirmed to be Deadpool III. The project would be a threequel to the previous two Deadpool films set in the now-defunct X-Men Franchise. Deadpool III was the first X-Men project that Marvel Studios picked up, with Reynolds attached to star from the earliest stages of production. With Deadpool III, the foul-mouthed merc will officially join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, becoming MCU’s first R-Rated film, thus somehow merging the two continuities together, probably through the concept of the multiverse. A sequel to Free Guy is also in the works at Disney, which may once again bring back Reynolds and Levy, making them the favorite director-actor duo of Hollywood.
