The synopsis for the film reads:
"A New York cop and his wife go on a European vacation to reinvigorate the spark in their marriage. A chance encounter leads to them being framed for the murder of an elderly billionaire."
The film stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, and Luke Evans - three massive names in Hollywood.
It has been a pretty whopper 12 months for Netflix, the world's most popular streaming service.
Ben Affleck’s action movie Triple Frontier was watched by more than 52 million accounts in its first month on site.
The famous Fyre Festival documentary (which was ace btw) was watched by more than 20 million in the first four weeks.
The Umbrella Academy was viewed 45 million households in its first month.
So yeah, Netflix are having a great time.
