It may actually surprise you. We were definitely surprised when we looked at the data. We’re not going to talk numbers here and before we reveal the most watched of our films, let’s take a look back at the most viewed in previous years.
2016 – 2018 Indiana Jones and the Legend of Bimini
In 2014, we released our second Indiana Jones adventure. The film premiered at the Cinema Theater in Rochester, NY in September of that year. We premiered the film online in October of that year. And since then, this has been the most popular movie on our website. But that’s no surprise. Usually, the newest film gets the most views. But this film is a lot of fun. And, yes, we’re biased of course! But when you see the characters brought to life so vividly by the actors in this film, it becomes a very fun ride. So this became the top viewed until…
2019 – 2020 Star Wars: Scramble on Uylara
A Star Wars fan film had been something that we have wanted to do for a long time. But we didn’t for a few reasons. First, we didn’t have the ability to create similar special effects. Second, props and costumes for this become very expensive. And, lastly, the internet was already flooded with so many Star Wars fan films already so we didn’t really want to contribute to it. However, the time came and we released the film in 2019; which ultimately knocked Indiana Jones and the Legend of Bimini out of the top spot. Again, this is expected for new films and this continued through 2020. But what is the most watched Tatum Pictures film of 2021?
2021 – Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Apalachee
Yes! You read that right. It seems that both Star Wars and Bimini have been knocked out of the top spot by an oldie but goodie. Why? We’re surprised too. This film hasn’t held the top spot since 2014. And the only reason it bested Bimini that year was because Bimini was released towards the end of the year. This film was our first Indiana Jones adventure. So, there was a lot of experimentation here. It seemed to work. Now, granted, the year isn’t over yet and Bimini still has a chance (although the numbers aren’t trending that way).
Overall, what this really tells us is that we’re entertaining you. And that’s all that we really want to do. We make films to entertain. And as long as you feel entertained, we’ve done what we set out to do. So, thank you all for your support over the years!
