Only 18% Of “The Irishman” Viewers Made It All The Way To The End
If you started watching Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” on Netflix last week but didn’t finish it, you’re in good company.
According to Bloomberg, just 18% of the 13.2 million viewers who tuned in actually finished the the 3 1/2-hour gangster epic starting Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Ray Romano Harvey Keitel and Joe Pesci.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Netflix bought the rights to the film and spent $200 million to produce it after Paramount stepped aside. In its first five days, it attracted a bigger average audience than “El Camino” – the “Breaking Bad”-inspired film, however it fell short of the 16.9 million viewers that watched the Sandra Bullock thriller “Bird Box,” released at the end of 2018.
Interestingly, around the same number of people finished “Bird Box,” while just 11% made it all the way through “El Camino,” according to Bloomberg.
