Johnson’s participation in “Skyscraper” contributed significantly to its success. As one of the most well-known performers in the world, he attracted viewers to the movie with his star power. Johnson is also well-known for his action movies, and “Skyscraper” showcased his skills.
The movie’s success is evidence of Johnson’s aptitude for choosing blockbuster endeavors. He is not hesitant to take on difficult parts and has a good eye for stories that will connect with people. The most recent illustration of Johnson’s success at the box office is “Skyscraper“.
Skyscraper, starring Dwayne Johnson, is a global hit on Netflix
“Skyscraper” has done well on Netflix in addition to being a hit in theaters. Over 90 million people have seen the movie since it was released to the streaming platform. As a result, it ranks among the most-watched Netflix movies ever.
Skyscraper has secured the No. 9 position on the Netflix Top 10 worldwide chart for the most recent week. It falls just short of recent releases like The Out-Laws, Extraction 2, and Run Rabbit Run on Netflix. Skyscraper, which debuted on the chart, attracted 4.4 million viewers and accrued 7.5 million viewing hours in a single week.

Skyscraper was a big miss at the time. It has a 48 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the star’s lowest-reviewed film from the late 2010s. It was rated lower than a streak of Fresh successes like Jumanji: The Next Level, Fighting with My Family, and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. His post-Skyscraper run of success wouldn’t end until 2021 when Red Notice’s Rotten Tomatoes rating fell to 36%.
Considering how poorly received Skyscraper was overall, a sequel has not yet been announced. However, franchises and sequels have been the foundation of Johnson’s career. Fast X Part 2, a live-action Moana adaptation, and even a sequel to Red Notice, which did incredibly well on Netflix despite having a low Rotten Tomatoes rating, are among his next projects.
After making its Netflix debut this week, it will be interesting to see if Skyscraper continues in the Top 10. But if it does, there’s a chance it’ll spark enough interest from viewers to prompt serious discussions for a sequel. Skyscraper 2 might very well become a possibility because Johnson and his crew have developed a practice of identifying when there is a public desire for additional installments in a series.
It is not unexpected that “Skyscraper” on Netflix has been a hit. The movie has a stellar cast and is a well-made action thriller. In addition, the Hong Kong setting of the movie offers a visually magnificent background for the action.
