"As far as I know, this is the first," said Paul Dergrabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore and an old Hollywood observer. "It's incredibly unusual."
Of course, Netflix is Netflix, and we also do not know how many people were rumored to be. Except in rare cases, as in the case of the "Bird Box," the company usually does not issue any rooms in the audience.
"The cash numbers are not as we value success, so we do not use them," Netflix spokeswoman, when asked about earnings of "Roma". The spokesman said: "We are delighted with the success of the Roma, but refused to offer any figures.
