Adam Sandler surprised his fans with the new movie Hubie Halloween. In return, his fans surprised him back by making his comeback film number one.
A few weeks before Halloween, Adam Sandler already presented a spooky but funny day to everyone through Hubie Halloween.
On Oct. 7, Sandler unleashed his acting skills again through his newest comedy-horror film on Netflix.
Hubie Halloween became his sixth original Netflix project since he began appearing on the streaming platform in 2015.
“Hubie Halloween” immediately garnered success
One day after Netflix finally released the flick, Sandler’s film immediately became the site’s most-watched movie of the day.
According to Forbes Magazine, they expect that this flick will continue to dominate the charts at least until the weekend.
Before its debut, only three Netflix Originals made it to the top ten movies and TV shows on the site. But soon after it arrived on Wednesday, the score finally became 4/10 because of the film’s success.
Aside from that record, Hubie Halloween also successfully became the only Netflix original movie on the top 10.
The success would not be possible without the help of other members of the cast.
