This Intense Gerard Butler Thriller Has Overtaken ‘Blonde’ as the #1 Movie on Netflix

One of the most anticipated films of 2022 was Blonde - a Netflix drama based on the novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, which tells a fictionalized version of Marilyn Monroe's life and stars Ana de Armas (Knives Out). And while the film received mixed reviews upon its release (including from PureWow), it still managed to climb to number one on Netflix's most-watched movies list from the day it premiered. That was until a new movie just overtook it.
The thriller Last Seen Alive, starring Gerard Butler, just rose to the top and took the crown from Blonde.
Last Seen Alive was directed by Brian Goodman (Black Butterfly) and follows a Gone Girl-style storyline. In the film, a man named Will Spann (Butler) is driving his wife to her parents' house when he stops at a gas station and she mysteriously disappears. However, when he informs the authorities about it, he becomes one of the prime suspects.

"You know, I have to ask you, how's your marriage going?" Detective Paterson (Russell Hornsby) tells him in the clip. Of course, it looks like the movie sets up the mystery so you're not sure who to believe.

And to make matters worse, the clip tells us that Will's wife, Lisa (played by Jaimie Alexander), filed for divorce just before their trip. "I think we need a break," she says. "I don't feel anything anymore."
In addition to Butler, Alexander and Hornsby, the film also stars Ethan Embry (Sweet Home Alabama), Michael Irby (Barry), Cindy Hogan (Boy Erased), Bruce Altman (Mr. Robot), Jordan Salloum (Oldboy) and Dani Deetté (Ozark). ).
We'll have to look at this and see if it lives up to the hype.
