Netflix has unveiled its most popular titles internationally with true-crime doc The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann topping the UK list and Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston comedy Murder Mystery leading in Australia.

In India, Bollywood romantic drama Kabir Singh was the most popular release, while the second season of gritty Indian crime drama, Sacred Games, topped the series list. There are also lists for France and Germany (below).

The streamer hasn’t officially revealed the methodology, but the list is thought to have been based on the number of accounts in each country that have watched at least two minutes of a title during its first 28 days on Netflix this year. For series, only the most popular season is counted and for shows and movies that have been released recently, the rankings are based on 28-day projections derived from the initial sampling.

Murder Mystery, which was directed by Kyle Newacheck and written by James Vanderbilt and released in June, Michael Bay-directed action feature 6 Underground, which starred Ryan Reynolds, the third season of supernatural drama Stranger Things and The Irishman, all appeared on the most popular releases in the UK and Australia.

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, which told the story of the missing British child, who vanished from the seaside resort of Praia de Luz in Portugal, while on holiday with her family. launched in March. It was directed by Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened and Jim & Andy director Chris Smith, produced by Pulse Films and Paramount Television and exec produced by Emma Cooper and Thomas Benski.

Local titles also proved popular in the UK with Ricky Gervais’ After Life, David Attenborough’s doc Our Planet and comedy Sex Education making the list.

In India, local content featured heavily, with 6 Underground being the only U.S. effort to feature in the top 10 releases, while Sex Education was the highest-ranked non-local series, clinching fourth place.
