Love Again starring Outlander’s Sam Heughan has found success via streaming, following a tepid $12.7 million box office haul.
Now available to Netflix US subscribers, the romantic comedy is officially the platform’s most-watched movie since its release last week, according to FlixPatrol.
Adam Driver’s dino-flop 65 enjoyed a similar turnaround back in July, having struggled during its theatrical run.
Love Again sees Priyanka Chopra in the role of Mira Ray, who sends a series of romantic texts to her late fiancé’s mobile.
Unbeknown to her, the number was reassigned to the work phone of journalist Rob Burns (Heughan). Captivated by Mira’s confessional, he enlists the help of singing sensation Celine Dion in figuring out how to win this mystery woman’s heart.
Praising the ‘My Heart Will Go On’ singer’s acting debut, Heughan exclusively told Digital Spy earlier this year: “Isn’t she wonderful? She’s just such an incredible person.
“I think she should have been in a movie, but I’m glad she saved herself for us and she’s created five new original tracks for us.
“[She’s] funny as well, which is really not surprising, because she’s such a professional, but she’s so good. She has her own personal, incredible love story and I think she’s just the perfect fit for this.
“She’s such a down-to-earth person and I think she comes across that way.”
Heughan can also be seen later this year in Channel 4’s psychological drama The Couple Next Door, as well as the second part of Outlander season 7.
