Netflix’s new romantic drama The Last Letter from Your Lover is a breakout hit in both the U.S. and around the globe
The film released on July 23 in the U.S. and will roll out to other markets over the next week. Despite the limited release, FlixPatrol ranked the film as the fifth most popular movie worldwide on Netflix the day after its release. It quickly reached the number three spot, where it has remained since Monday.
Based on Jojo Moyes’ 2012 novel of the same name, the romance film stars British actress Felicity Jones as a reporter that uncovers the epistolary remains of a love that mirrors her own life.
In the U.S., The Last Letter from Your Lover surpasses the entirety of the Twilight saga. Recently added to the streaming platform, the films rank number three to seven on FlixPatrol’s US charts. Blood Red Sky, Peter Thorwarth’s vampiric horror film, holds the global and domestic top spot of the week.
