Kevin Hart’s star-studded film soars to Netflix’s top ten.


The star-studded action comedy Ride Along 2, which was released in 2016 as a sequel to 2014’s Ride Along, is currently dominating the streaming charts in multiple countries around the world, making it one of the most popular titles on the platform. The Tim Story-directed film follows rookie lawman Ben Barber, played by Hart, who aspires to be a detective like his future brother-in-law, as a follow-up to the 2014 film. As Ben prepares to walk down the aisle, he and his brother-in-law must first travel to Miami to assist local cops in apprehending a vicious drug dealer, resulting in a flurry of chaos as Ben and James must prove that charismatic executive Antonio Pope is actually a violent crime lord. Ice Cube, Ken Jeong, Benjamin Bratt, Olivia Munn, Bruce McGill, and Tika Sumpter star alongside Hart in the star-studded film.

Ride Along 2, which debuted in January 2016 to a worldwide audience of 6 million, is enjoying renewed success on Netflix. According to FlixPatrol data, the film is currently the eighth most popular movie worldwide, beating out Knight and Day and My Little Pony: A New Generation. It only trails There’s Someone Inside Your House from Netflix’s Netflix and Chills lineup, Venom, and Security, among a few others, with The Guilty taking the top spot globally. In a number of countries, including Australia, Germany, and Iceland, the film has risen to the top of the streaming charts. Unfortunately for American subscribers, Ride Along 2 is not available on the streamer’s platform in the United States, and it is unclear when or if the film will be added. However, this does not mean that fans are completely out of luck. While residents of the United States cannot simply go to the Netflix app and press play, Ride Along 2 is available on other streaming services such as Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, Vudu, and Google Play, though it will cost a few dollars to watch the film on those platforms. Subscribers to Netflix in the United States who want to catch a few laughs with Hart still have plenty of options. Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given, Kevin Hart: Irresponsible, and Kevin Hart: Don’t F**k This Up are all available on Netflix in the United States, as well as Hart’s comedy-drama Fatherhood, which debuted in June and quickly rose to the top of the streaming service.
