The Mitchells vs. The Machines is Netflix’s most-viewed animation release to date, the streamer revealed in its quarterly earnings report on Tuesday afternoon.
The Sony Pictures Animation-produced film was viewed by 53 million households in its first 28 days of release. We had previously observed the film’s strong performance, noting that it ranked as Netflix’s top film in the U.S. for nine consecutive days.
Sony had originally intended to release the film theatrically last fall, but was unable to do so because of the pandemic. Subsequently, Netflix announced in January that it had licensed the film for streaming.
