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

On a darker note, the 2022 supernatural horror film “Umma” is also trending on the streaming service. Sandra Oh stars as an immigrant single mom who’s haunted by her own mother’s ghost.
