After dropping on Netflix on Jan. 4 to the U.S. streaming giant’s second-biggest bow ever for a non-English language movie in hours watched, Spaniard J.A. Bayona’s “Society of the Snow,” a frontrunner to score a nomination in the Academy Awards best international feature category, is tracking to become one of Netflix’s biggest non-English movies ever, hitting its Top 10 of most popular titles on record.


After 11 days on Netflix, “Society of the Snow” has punched 51 million views, hitting Netflix’s Top 10 biggest non-English language films list at No. 10. Given its trawl compares to 91 day viewing figures for all other titles on the list, including last year’s multiple Oscar and BAFTA-winning German film “All Quiet on the Western Front,” it is sure to scale the Top 10 best ever chart in the near three months to come.  


In hours watched, “Society’s” first four day bow was only bested among Netflix non-English films by Norway’s “Troll,” and in views by Spain’s “Nowhere.”


“Society’s” performance rolls off great word-of-mouth, its Oscar buzz and great reviews. It has scored 90% on Rotten Tomatoes and hit Netflix’s Top 10 in 93 countries including France, Germany, the U.K., Brazil, Mexico and the U.S.
