Audience numbers for the streaming service's titles aren't usually released, however, Nielsen has acquired data which reports that the J.J. Abrams-produced film amassed 5m views after as many days in the US.
That's 6m less than Will Smith fantasy film Bright which shot to the top of Netflix's most successful list after racking up an audience of 11m in just three days following its pre-Christmas release in December 2017 (it should be noted David Ayer's film was released on a Friday and The Cloverfield Paradox on a Sunday night).
These figures will still undoubtedly be deemed a disappointment by Netflix who reportedly paid $50m to release the $40m budgeted film after acquiring it from Paramount Pictures who originally planned to release the film, originally titled God Particle, in April.
Nielsen's SVOD ratings also unveiled audience figures for Joel Kinnaman-starring sci-fi series Altered Carbon which achieved an average viewership of 1.2m in its first three days. It peaked with 2.5m after one week - for comparison, the Stranger Things season 2 premiere - a returning popular series, granted - reached 15m.
While starting off with a seven-day average of 5.9m viewers, the figures had dropped to under 1m by the final episode.
