Chris Evans and Ana de Armas' Ghosted has set a new record
Ghosted, the new film starring Chris Evans and Ana de Armas, has set a new record for Apple TV+.
As reported by Deadline, the action-romance has become the most-watched exclusive for the streaming service to date, with the film pulling in 328,500 viewers across its first two days following its release last week (April 21).
The figures for Ghosted dwarf that of other Apple TV+ films such as Finch (228,500), Spirited (174,000) and Tetris (88,000), with the completion rate for the film reportedly 20% above the average rate for other projects on the service.

The film, which is directed by Dexter Fletcher, follows Cole Turner (Evans) as travels across the world with superspy Sadie Rhodes (de Armas) after spending the night together.
Fletcher, who also directed Eddie the Eagle and Rocketman, recently revealed he was the subject of a prank from Evans, who locked him in the trunk of a car.
“Of course, Evans slammed the trunk and locked me in there for three minutes while everyone milled about outside and had a good laugh,” he said. “I knew it was inevitably going to happen, and they thought it'd be a real hoot … It was probably 30 seconds, but it felt like a lifetime. But it's a bit of fun, isn’t it?”

Evans, formerly the lead star of the Captain America franchise, teased ahead of the film’s release that there would be cameos from some of his Marvel co-stars, saying: “There are some cameos, that’s right. Can we give that away? I guess we can.
“We had some old Marvel buddies back [but] I hate asking people to do cameos – it’s the worst,” he continued. “If it fits into their schedules I suppose [they’ll do it] but these guys rose to the challenge and they were there for me – it was great.”
