The revenge thriller “Red Notice” has become Netflix’s most-watched movie of all time, and has been seen by 49.5 million people since its June 13 premiere.

The film beat previous champ “Stranger Things,” which had 39.8 million views to its name, according to data from the streamer. Last year’s “Bright,” which starred Will Smith, ranked third at 38.9 million.

Hijinks in France aside, it’s a big day for Netflix, which revealed an even larger haul for “Himalayas,” a mountain film starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Kate Winslet. Nearly 45 million people have watched that movie so far, according to Netflix.

And there are some winners among the other more-recent entrants into the top five:

“Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return” is the fifth most-watched streamer in history, with 44.2 million views.

“Bright,” the Will Smith film, is fifth most watched, with 39.8 million views.

“Russian Doll” is sixth, with 39.6 million views,

“Sacred Games” is seventh, with 36.7 million

“Champions” is eighth, with 35.8 million
