Netflix has another record-breaking production on its hands.

After setting a record for the largest series premier with the release of Squid Game, Netflix has broken another barrier with the opening weekend of Red Notice. Red Notice, the first film produced for streaming platforms by Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions, has set the record for most views on opening day in the history of Netflix films.

“It’s OFFICIAL as the numbers are coming in from 190 territories around the world,” Johnson, who also stars in the movie, wrote on his Instagram. ““RED NOTICE has become THE BIGGEST OPENING EVER ~ for ANY MOVIE IN THE HISTORY OF NETFLIX!”

In addition to its high opening numbers, the film also maintains a 92% audience rating on film criticism aggregate Rotten Tomatoes, though that score stands in stark contrast to the 39% critic score.

The film’s other two stars, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot, both broadcasted their own excitement on their respective social media.

“WOW #RedNotice is Netflix biggest ever opening day for a film,” Reynolds wrote on his Instagram. “Congrats to this whole team!”

“This is amazing!!!! What can I say, you guys are the best and the reason why we make these films,” Gadot wrote on her Instagram. “So grateful and excited!!! Congratulations Netflix and to the entire @rednotice.movie team.”
