Paramount+ announced that its original film, secret headquarters set a new record with a streamer. Owen Wilson-led film was declared the most viewed original film in the first seven days of its release on the streaming platform.

secret headquarters tells the story of Charlie and his friends who discover the headquarters of the most powerful superhero in the world, hidden under his house. When the villains attack, they must unite to protect the headquarters and save the world. When Charlie’s father goes on a secret mission, he and his friends begin to investigate the house, which eventually leads to the discovery of his father’s secret lair. Wilson’s character bears similarities to the Marvel and DC universes with his Iron Man-like costume and his secret lair that almost screams “Batcave”. The children’s inquisitive nature soon turns them into heroes themselves, and they soon fight villains to protect the secret lair.
The overall appeal of the film may be due to the bright, youthful cast and perhaps subtle and not-so-subtle references to other well-known superhero projects. secret headquarters leads Henry Joost as well as Ariel Shulman a couple of whom had worked together previously on Paranormal Activity 3 & four, nerveand Netflix Strength.
