‘Parasite’ Breaks Streaming Records on Hulu in First Week, Becomes Second Most Watched Film Ever on Service

In the first week since “Parasite” became available for streaming exclusively on Hulu, Bong Joon Ho’s Best Picture-winning drama has broken streaming records and become one of the most-watched movies ever on the service.

Hulu revealed to TheWrap that since it made its debut on April 8, “Parasite” is now the second most-watched movie overall on Hulu and is the #1 most-watched independent or foreign language film to ever run on the service.

The film already has more lifetime views on Hulu in one week of streaming than the entire duration of even recent studio hits like “A Quiet Place,” “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World,” “Transformers: The Last Knight” and “Creed II” that in some cases have already been on the platform for months.
