365 Days’ Dominates Netflix: How a Polish Erotic Film Became a Surprise #1 Hit

Netflix’s most-watched movie chart has seen its fair share of eye-rolling No. 1 titles in recent weeks, from the gross-out David Spade comedy “The Wrong Missy” to the awful thriller “The Last Days of American Crime” (which sports a zero percent on Rotten Tomatoes from 21 reviews), but no chart topper has been as gratuitous as “365 Days.” The erotic Polish romance drama from directors Barbara Bialowas and Tomasz Mandes has become Netflix’s most-streamed movie just two days after its June 7 streaming debut. Why the seemingly out-of-nowhere skyrocket to No. 1? It helps when your movie is nicknamed the “Polish 50 Shades of Grey.”

365 Days” is based on an erotic novel by author Blanka Lipinska and was a box office hit in Poland after opening in February and grossing nearly $9 million in its home country. Michele Morrone stars as Massimo, a member of a Sicilian mafia family who fails to protect his father from an assassination after being distracted by a beautiful woman. Massimo becomes so obsessed with the woman, a Polish sales agent named Laura, that he kidnaps and imprisons her. Massimo gives Laura 365 days to fall in love with him or else she can go back to her unhappy life in Poland.

The Fast Saga’s Future After Fast & Furious 10 Explained

Fast and Furious 10 will supposedly end the mainline Fast and Furious series, but the franchise could live on in the form of spinoffs after that.

While the mainline series will supposedly end with Fast & Furious 10, the Fast franchise may live on after that. Much like its protagonist, Dominic “Dom” Toretto, the Fast & Furious movies have come a long ways from humble beginnings. What started as a Point Break-esque action-thriller about illegal street racing (one now marvelously dated by its late 1990s/early 2000s sensibilities) has evolved into a series of globe-trotting heist movies and crime capers. In addition to being a money-making machine, the property has earned the respect of critics for its ability to combine ludicrous action sequences with unabashedly corny, yet sincere and touching messages about family and brotherhood.

Nothing lasts forever, though, and for years the plan has been to end the central Fast & Furious films with Fast & Furious 10. Star and producer Vin Diesel confirmed those plans as recently as February, just prior to Fast & Furious 9 being delayed from its original release date in April because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to teasing the possibility of Fast & Furious 10 being a two-parter, he also hinted at the larger property’s future, saying “ it would be nice for this world to continue for generations to come.”

The Fast and the Furious’ Made and Wrecked Replicas of a $5 Million Car

While the Fast & Furious movies are about cars, they’re also about family. What started out as a movie about street racing and stealing DVD players quickly became a franchise that had a lot of emotional depth as well as some insane storylines.

That said, while the plot of the movies have gotten crazy, so has the stunt work that’s gone into making those movies. Since the franchise still revolves around cars, most of those wild stunts involve cars. Here’s a look at that time the Fast & Furious franchise made replicas of a $5 million car and wrecked all of them.

‘Fast Five’ and the turning point of the franchise

Before Fast Five premiered, the franchise, while successful, wasn’t as big of a franchise as it is today. That all changed with Fast Five, which did a lot of things to change things up.

First, it introduced Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s character, Luke Hobbs, into the franchise. Secondly, it set the tone of craziness that the next movies would all have.

There’s a lot of insane action scenes in Fast Five, and there’s a lot of the emotional oomph that the franchise is known for, too. For example, in the movie before Fast Five, Michelle Rodriguez’s character, Letty Ortiz, dies.

Then, in the middle of the credits of Fast Five, there’s a teaser that shows that Letty is in fact, alive. This is not only a massive twist, but it’s also the type of insane storytelling that the movies will be doing from then on.

The virtual conference session was mediated by Varun Dhawan – he was present at the session despite having no film releasing; neither Vidyut Jammwal nor Kunal Kemmu were.

When Varun Dhawan asked Akshay Kumar, whose film Laxmmi Bomb will release online, what the fans can expect right now and if films’ online release can match up to the experience of watching first day first shows, the actor said, “For now they should accept it and the best part is that the show time will be their own, food can be of their choice. Ab kya bachche ki jaan loge.” Akshay Kumar also described the experience of wearing a saree in Laxmmi Bomb – his character is transgender – as “graceful.”

Gulabo Sitabo, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana, was the first big Bollywood film to release on an OTT platform this year. The film premiered on streaming giant Amazon Prime.
