The 10 Most Popular Movies On Netflix Right Now (Jan. 25)

“Homefront” is the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.

Sylvester Stallone co-wrote the screenplay for this 2013 action-thriller starring Kate Bosworth, James Franco, Winona Ryder and Jason Statham. The story follows the well-tread plot of a man who wants a quieter life from his violent day job and moves his family to a seemingly quiet town, only to get roped into more violence.

The movie earned a 43% on Rotten Tomatoes.

More notable is “The White Tiger” in second place, a drama which has earned a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes ― a rare high score for a popular Netflix film. Priyanka Chopra stars in and executive produced this movie about an Indian man trying to escape a life of debt and servitude. Chopra also starred in the recent Netflix hit “We Can Be Heroes,” which is eighth in the ranking this week.

“Outside the Wire” is the only other Netflix movie in the top 10. That action movie stars Anthony Mackie as a robot soldier.

The RZA-directed action movie “Cut Throat City” earned the third-place spot. The film features Eiza González, Ethan Hawke, Terrence Howard, Shameik Moore, Demetrius Shipp Jr., Wesley Snipes and T.I. in a plot about a heist taking place around Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. I recently recommended the movie in Streamline’s monthly roundup of films to watch on Netflix.
