The odds are in favor of Death the toys movies on Netflix, as US subscribers have been binging them so much that all four entries from the franchise have cracked Netflix’s daily top 10. It seems that the Jennifer Lawrence-led films that dominated the box office are still a popular choice for streaming audiences. .
Netflix announced via Twitter on March 1 that all four of the The death games movies will be available as part of their What’s New on Netflix lineup for the entire month of March. It is, though, as the tweet says that all four films will only be available for 31 days (in the US, the films are not available to stream on Netflix in the UK).

Whether it is the time limit or just the opportunity to see the films, based on the popular series of young adult novels by Suzanne Collins, American Netflix subscribers have been wondering about the entire series in the first days of the month. As of March 6, in Netflix’s Top 10 Movies in the US list, every film from the franchise has made the list – The death games (No. 4), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (No. 5), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (No. 8) and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (No. 10).
In case you need a refresher, The death games debuted in 2012 and starred Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, a teenager in a dystopian future society where the government forces each of the 12 districts it oversees to send two tributes to compete in a match to the death tournament. Through her actions, however, Katniss becomes a symbol of revolution that could threaten to overthrow those in power. In addition to Lawrence, the film starred Josh Hutchinson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Sam Clafin, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland.
Released between 2012 and 2015, the four films earned a combined global box office of $2.9 billion.
The death games franchise continues to be popular, not only because the movies currently dominate Netflix, but because we are returning to Panem with a highly anticipated new movie in 2023. A prequel to the previously released movies, The ballad about songbirds and snakeshas a November 17th release date.
It’s not just The death games franchise that US Netflix subscribers are enjoying right now; it’s a movie bonanza from the 2010s. March 6, 2014 This is where I leave you is the most watched film in the United States, followed by 2013’s RIP (No. 2), 2013 century The Hangover Part III (No. 6), 2015 century Magic Mike XXL (no. 7) and the 2013s Turbo (No. 9). The lone non-2010s film in the top 10 March is the new Netflix original, We have a ghost.
Anyone in the US with a Netflix subscription can watch The death games franchise right now. If you do not have a Netflix account, the films can be rented via digital on-demand.
