  The Sandra Bullock-starring thriller "Bird Box" was released in
  December, but it's still one of the biggest movie
  hits for Netflix this year.

  Analytics company Jumpshot provided Business Insider a list of
  the most popular original streaming movies of the year so far,
  and Netflix dominates. Only one movie in the top 20 is from a
  Netflix competitor: Hulu's Fyre Festival documentary, "Fyre
  Fraud."  But Netflix's own Fyre Festival documentary, "Fyre:
  The Greatest Party That Never Happened," topped the entire list.

  Netflix tends to brag about the
  performance of some of its mediocre movies, but they are also
  its most watched. "Bird Box" and the action movie "Triple
  Frontier" weren't critical favorites, but they are the two most
  popular Netflix original movies of the year so far.

  Two of the top five movies on the list received Rotten Tomatoes
  critic scores below 40%, but audiences love them.

  Jumpshot created the list
  based on number of views each movie got in the first quarter of
  2019 only on desktop devices, but the data can be used as a proxy
  of a movie's relative popularity.

  
    
      
        Below are the 20 most popular original streaming
        movies of 2019, so far:
