The list of the most watched movies of the first week of August brought some news. While Sonic 2: The Movie, Top Gun: Indomitable Aces and Jurassic World: Dominion establish themselves, once again, as feature films with a large audience, new titles enter the ranking. It is the case of Lie influencer, Revenge and the national Eduardo and Monica.
For multiverse fans, there’s no shortage of options. Spider-Man: No Return Home continues on the list, while one of the most acclaimed films today, Everything Everywhere at the Same Timetakes the lead.
It is worth remembering that there is still no official tool that measures the audience of movies on streaming and video on demand services. For now, the best way to do this is from JustWatch, a platform that helps users find what to watch and also in which streaming content is available.
So, based on this data, we arrived at an approximate ranking of which were the most watched movies of the week in Brazil.
10. Sonic 2: The Movie
A work for children and adults, Sonic 2: The Movie is a feature that won over the public and remained in our ranking for several weeks. The story revolves around the blue hedgehog who teams up with the fox Tails to try to defeat Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey). It turns out that such a mission will not be easy, since the villain is aligned with Knuckles in order to steal the mystical emerald to dominate and destroy the world.
