“Synchronic” is the most popular offering on Netflix, regardless of format, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.

The 2019 sci-fi movie stars Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan as New Orleans paramedics who encounter a series of deaths linked to a mysterious drug that ultimately challenges their perception of reality.

The second most popular movie on the platform is “Thunder Force,” a Netflix action comedy in which Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer play childhood best friends who fight crimes after one develops a formula that can give regular people superpowers.

The third most popular movie on the service is “Why Did You Kill Me?,” a Netflix documentary about the murder of Crystal Theobold and her family’s search for those responsible.

The only other Netflix movie in the platform’s top 10 is “Arlo: The Alligator Boy,” an animated musical about a half-human, half-alligator boy who leaves his swampy home to find his long-lost father. The current most popular non-Netflix offerings include “The Little Rascals,” “The Zookeeper’s Wife” and “Rush.”
