Wonder has made the Netflix top 10 list seven years after its theatrical release. Directed by Stephen Chbosky, Wonder chronicles the true story of Auggie Pullman, a young boy with Treacher Collins syndrome, as he tries to fit in at school. The film, which is based on the 2012 novel of the same name by R. J. Palacio, stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay, and Mandy Patinkin, and was a box office success.

Netflix now releases its global top 10 chart for the week of June 10 – 16, revealing that Wonder ranked as fifth most popular title on the service in that time frame. The family drama accumulated an impressive 9.5 million hours viewed and five million total views, beating moves like Home, Safe House, Ultraman: Rising, How to Rob A Bank, and Atlas. Wonder’s position on the global top 10 chart follows its debut on the U.S. top 10 list last week. Check out the full top 10 list below:

How Did Wonder Perform In Theaters?
Why The Julia Robert & Owen Wilson Movie Connected With Audiences

Released in 2017, Wonder was met with a mostly positive reception from critics. The film currently enjoys an impressive 86% score on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics ultimately agreeing that it tells a moving story with some strong performances, despite its heavy sentimentality. The audience score for Wonder is even higher at 88%, suggesting it really struck a chord with general moviegoers.

Further reinforcing Wonder’s positive audience reception is the movie’s box office performance. The family drama made $305.9 million worldwide, a feat made all the more impressive considering its $20 million budget. Evolution in the theatrical landscape means Wonder is probably the type of movie that would go straight to streaming if it were released today, but the film’s performance in 2017 suggests there was, at the time, an appetite for emotionally-resonant stories featuring powerful themes and recognizable stars.

Wonder
‘s success led to development of a
spiritual sequel called
White Bird: A Wonder Story

. This film, which is scheduled to hit theaters later this year, tells the story of Auggie’s bully, Julian, and the lessons he learns from his grandmother, who lived through World War II.

The movie’s newfound success on streaming speaks to the value that Wonder cast members like Roberts and Wilson can still bring to a film. Both actors’ faces on the film’s Netflix tile could be enough to encourage viewers who are unfamiliar with the movie to check it out for the first time, but continued success likely couldn’t be had if the movie weren’t also of high quality. It’s unclear whether Wonder will maintain its spot in Netflix global top 10 list for two consecutive weeks, but the movie is evidently still connecting with viewers, even seven years after its release.
