“Knights of the Zodiac” hit Netflix on October 26, 2023 following a dire box office run earlier this year that netted the film just shy of $7 million globally, on a budget of $60 million. But as we’ve seen before, a lack of quality won’t keep streaming audiences away from a film or series, as was the case when “The Snowman” hit Netflix and viewers proved they’d watch anything. Now, according to FlixPatrol, a site that aggregates streaming data, “Knights of the Zodiac” is once again making that same case, charting at number five on the US Netflix Top 10 one day after arriving on the platform.
Since then, the film has hovered around that same spot, rising to number 4 on October 28, before dropping to fifth again the following day. But this manga adaptation refuses to give up, having stuck it out at number five from October 31 to November 2. That’s according to FlixPatrol, but a quick look at the Netflix homepage on November 2 indicates that “Knights of the Zodiac” has finally fallen out of the Top 10.
According to Netflix’s official charts for the week of October 23-29, the film did enough to claim the overall fifth spot for that week, so we’ll see what happens when the streamer updates its charts for this latest week. Then again, Netflix viewing metrics are dodgy at best, so we’re not entirely sure just how well “Knights of the Zodiac” has fared with those that actually hit play on it. But it’s at least a small win for the otherwise ill-fated adaptation before it fades into obscurity.
