Jennifer Aniston's comedy Murder Mystery has broken records for the biggest opening weekend ever for a Netflix Film. 

The film, also starring Adam Sandler, about a married couple who get framed for the killing of a billionaire's elderly uncle while on holiday in Europe, has racked up the biggest opening weekend ever for a Netflix movie, with 30,869,863 unique accounts watching it in the first three days.

The company usually avoids giving exact viewing figures, but has pulled the curtain back on several films this year.

Sharing the news to Twitter, the streaming service write "ADAM SANDLER AND JENNIFER ANISTON BREAKING NEWS ALERT. 30,869,863 accounts watched Murder Mystery in its first 3 days - the biggest opening weekend ever for a Netflix Film. 13,374,914 accounts in the US and Canada, and 17,494,949 more worldwide."

During its most recent earnings call, Netflix said Ben Affleck's action movie Triple Frontier had been watched by more than 52 million accounts in its first four weeks on the service.

Its Fyre Festival documentary was watched by more than 20 million in its opening four weeks, while superhero series The Umbrella Academy attracted 45 million households in its first month, according to Netflix. 

Last year, a thriller starring Sandra Bullock and based on the book Bird Box by Josh Malerman, attracted over 45 million viewers.
