Netflix invested a lot of money in its new film, The Irishman – a reported $200 million, so it has bet a lot on this film and it seems to have paid off. The film is super long, at around 3 and a half hours and in the first week it was on the service, Netflix has revealed that in that amount of time, the film has had 26.4 million separate accounts watch the film and considering people watch films together and some people share accounts, it is likely that 50 million people have seen the film so far.

Also for those wondering, Netflix has said that it considers a full watch if someone watches over 70% of the film.

Also, Ted Sarandos the content chief for Netflix told Deadline that they expect to get 40 million views on the film in the first 28 days.
