Parasite Is Now The Crown Jewel In Hulu’s Crown
Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite saw a 300 per cent rise in movie ticketing sales after it won the Academy Award this year and now it is proving to be a streaming monster as well.
According to a report in Indiewire, Parasite has become the most-streamed independent or foreign language film among all titles available on Hulu. What steals the cake is that it is also now the second most-watched movie overall on Hulu ever among titles currently available to stream.
This means that in just one week, Parasite has managed to out-stream popular films like How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, A Quiet Place, Transformers: The Last Knight, and Creed II.
Last week, Hulu went viral on Twitter after a few trolls attacked it for the movie having subtitles. When a person wrote, “It’s not in English, no one wants to watch a movie that they literally have to read to understand what’s going on,” Hulu commented saying, “If you don’t want to read subtitles, you can always learn Korean!”
