Society of the Snow is Netflix’s first movie hit of 2024, but don’t sleep on this action thriller

Society of the Snow, Netflix’s terrifying survival thriller that’s based on real-life events, is the streamer’s first big movie hit of 2024.

Per Netflix’s in-house Top 10 charts for the week running January 1 to January 7, the J.A. Bayona-directed movie debuted at number one – albeit on the non-English language chart – with 22.9 million views following its January 5 release on the world’s best streaming service. That accounts for a whopping 55.8 million hours viewed, too, and positive word of mouth might keep Society of the Snow in the upper echelons of that chart in the weeks ahead.
