“The Irishman” got some absurd ratings on Netflix.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the mafia film about the murder of Jimmy Hoffa got 13.16 million viewers from November 27 through December 1, which was its opening weekend.
I’m not surprised at all that “The Irishman” put up such huge numbers. The cast was loaded with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese was the man directing the production and it’s about one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in the history of America.
You add all that stuff up, and you have a 100% guaranteed hit on your hands.
