Netflix viewers spent half a billion hours on Adam Sandler

Netflix viewers spent half a billion hours on Adam Sandler

At this rate, the best we can hope for is that Sandler shows a little mercy and doesn't keep increasing his movies' running time. From the deal, so far we have The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over, and Sandy Wexler.

"The Cannes Film Festival's commitment to giving an exceptional platform to distinct stories from the world's most acclaimed auteurs is second to none", Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, said in a statement. But the streaming service didjust re-up Sandler's deal to produce four more films with him, and even if moderately exaggerated, these numbers are dispiritingly huge. The contract renewal might also mean that from here on out he's doing it his way, no more trying to appeal to the masses. Some of them are interesting and some of them boring, but just one of them reflects on you and me in a way that is deeply upsetting.

It seems as though Sandler has found a happy home because there are no obligations or expectations.

However, law enforcement officers came in less than two minutes later and escorted them off the plane, he added. Meanwhile United Airlines offered a different account in a statement according to Houston TV affiliate KHOU .

If there are 100 million subscribers streaming for at least, 100 minutes per day (time spent streaming is trending up) then Adam Sandler content is responsible for roughly 0.6-1.0% of all Netflix consumption every day. As part of the deal, Sandler agreed to develop, produce and star in 4 stand-alone films.

According to Netflix, its members have spent more than half a billion hours watching Sandler films - and that's just since the launch of his Netflix original The Ridiculous Six in December 2015. Netflix may be gearing up for a whole collection of films that will premiere with them instead of in theaters. That's important to me and my friends and the people I make the movies for'.
