Jennifer Lopez Dominates On Streaming For A Fourth Time Over Two Years As Netflix’s ‘Atlas’ Reaches Near 60M Global Views

Jennifer Lopez continues to steamroll on streaming as the Netflix sci-fi film Atlas has clocked close to 60 million global views (or 119.4M hours viewed), keeping No. 1 hold on the streamer’s top 10 film chart for the second week in a row. It also gives the multiplatinum-selling, two-time Emmy nominee her fourth No. 1 streaming movie over the past two years after Netflix’s The Mother and Prime Video’s This Is Me Now: A Love Story and Shotgun Wedding.

​Exclaimed Lopez’s producing partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas: “It’s time to report some true facts: A woman of color has done what few male stars have been able to do, namely having four No. 1 films in the past two years — Atlas, The Mother, This Is Me Now and Shotgun Wedding — two of them in the top 10 of all time on the two biggest streaming platforms, Netflix and Amazon.

“Yet those truths are being ignored,” she added.

“I’ve known Jennifer for thirty years. She’s a kind and deeply loving, hardworking mother, and isn’t it a shame we are at a point where we allow a small group to create a false narrative through gossip and internet bullying toward a woman in the face of her tremendous success and consistent humanity – it’s completely unfair and irresponsible.”

The news of Lopez’s streaming success with Atlas comes in the wake of an unplugged summer concert tour, which LiveNation said was due to the multihyphenate “taking time off to be with her children, family, and close friends.”

Atlas is the second-most-watched title of Lopez’s on Netflix after the massively viewed action pic The Mother, which is on the streamer’s 10 most-watched movies of all time with 136.4M global views. The Mother also was the streamer’s most-watched movie of 2023. Atlas notched 28.2M views in its first two days on Netflix, followed by another 31.6M global views in its subsequent week ending June 2. The Brad Peyton directed movie follows an AI soldier who’s determined that the only way to end war is to end humanity. The movie also hit the top 10 in 93 countries during the past two weeks. Over the past nine days, Atlas is the most-watched title on Netflix, series or film. This bests The Mother, which was No. 1 in 84 countries at launch.

In addition, we hear that the viewer completion rate for Atlas is very strong at 80% on Netflix, on par with The Mother.

Said Lopez’s Atlas co-star Simu Liu recently: “Jen is a producer on this movie and the reason why I am here and why Sterling [K. Brown] was in this beautiful movie is because Jen cares. And Jen cares about things like representation and diversity, and she’s a boss.”

Lopez’s This Is Me Now: A Love Story dropped February 16 on Prime Video and hit No. 1 on the service around the globe with a Rotten Tomatoes critics score of 75%.

Lopez’s romantic comedy Shotgun Wedding dropped on December 28 and became the No. 1 title on the Prime Video over release weekend and the week following, and one of service’s most streamed movies of 2023. Nielsen Media Research showed that Prime Video saw the largest monthly usage increase in January, recording a 9.3% uptick in viewing (+0.2 share points) that was driven by its original series Jack Ryan and Shotgun Wedding.

Lopez’s 2019 stripper crime thriller Hustlers became her highest-grossing live-action opening and domestic take at the stateside box office with $33.1M and $104.9M. Per EntTelligence, 11 million people attended Hustlers in U.S. and Canada. The movie earned her a supporting actress nomination at The Critics Choice, Golden Globes, Independent Spirit Awards and SAG Awards.
