Released on Netflix on March 11, The Adam Project is an action-adventure pic centered on time-traveling fighter pilot Adam Reed (Reynolds), who after accidentally crash-landing in 2022, teams up with his 12-year-old self (Walker Cobell) for a mission to save the future. Jennifer Garner, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldaña and Catherine Keener also star.
The film was scripted by Jonathan Tropper and T.S. Nowlin & Jennifer Flackett & Mark Levin. Reynolds, Levy, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger produced, with Mary McLaglen, Josh McLaglen, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen, George Dewey, Patrick Gooing, Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin exec producing.
Netflix started releasing streaming numbers for around 100 countries last year, using the same metric of total streaming that Nielsen does in the U.S.
Reynolds and Levy’s partnership on The Adam Project followed their collaboration on 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy. The pair will next work together on Deadpool 3, with Levy as director, as previously announced.
