Jennifer Lopez’s new film The Mother has already achieved an impressive feat on Netflix.
The Mother debuted on the streaming platform during Mother’s Day weekend in the US on 12 May.
The film stars Lopez, 53, as an assassin who comes out of hiding to protect her daughter (played by Lucy Paez) who she left earlier in life.
Omari Hardwick and The Handmaid’s Tale star Joseph Fiennes also feature in the action-thriller.
As reported by Deadline, the film has been a hit for the streamer since its release.
Data obtained by Samba TV shows that The Mother was watched by 2.8 million households in the US over its debut weekend.
To put that into perspective, this means that Lopez’s new movie has performed better (initially, at least) than two of Netflix’s hugely popular sequels: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Murder Mystery 2.
Deadline quotes Samba’s data as showing that, in the same measurement window, Glass Onion captured 2.6 million households while Murder Mystery 2 was watched by 2.4 million.
