The Most Popular Movies On Netflix Besides 'The Forgotten Battle'

A 2017 heist film and a new Norwegian dark comedy are also trending.

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

The Dutch World War II film tells the story of the 1944 Battle of the Scheldt through the eyes of a British glider pilot, a Nazi soldier and a member of the resistance. “The Forgotten Battle” first premiered in the Netherlands in December 2020 and was released on Netflix on Oct. 15.

The second most popular film on the platform right now is “Going in Style” ― the 2017 heist comedy starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin. Next in the ranking is the kid-friendly animated special “Sharkdog’s Fintastic Halloween.”
