The mystery is over.

Netflix seldom shares viewership numbers but made an exception for their new original film “Murder Mystery.”

The streaming service on Tuesday claimed the Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler movie was watched by 30 million accounts in the first three days following its release.

The announcement, made on the company’s comedy account, also touted the achievement as the “biggest opening weekend ever” for a Netflix original film.

Netflix said 13 million of the accounts were based in the United States and Canada, while the other 17 million were worldwide.

Variety says Netflix defines a “view” as a user watching at least 70% of a film.

The plot involves a New York City cop named Nick and his wife Audrey, played by Sandler and Aniston, who make a friend on a flight to Europe. The vacationing couple end up on the run after being framed for a billionaire’s murder.
