Never lose sight of survival and maybe Susanne Bier has been watching John Krasinski. The Oscar-winning Danish filmmaker with the help of Netflix is bringing their own nightmarish vision of the post-apocalyptic with Bird Box.
On first impressions, many people will say its similar to A Quiet Place. A land full of unknown killer creatures and a family trying to escape the nightmare will make you think yes it’s similar. The difference between that film and this one Jason Malerman‘s novel our humans don’t know what the monsters look like. Instead of sound, it’s seeing them that can get you killed and the level of fear rises.
After their antics of Ocean’s Eight, Sandra Bullock stars as our leading lady alongside fellow heister Sarah Paulson. Bullock stars as Mallorie a mother trying to survive the unknown hell. She must take her family and survive the perilous journey to a sanctuary, they must do it blindfolded.
Netflix has sent us the film’s official Trailer which teases unnerving, tense creepy tone of the film…
When a mysterious force decimates the world’s population, only one thing is certain: if you see it, you take your life. Facing the unknown, Malorie finds love, hope and a new beginning only for it to unravel. Now she must flee with her two children down a treacherous river to the one place left that may offer sanctuary. But to survive, they’ll have to undertake the perilous two-day journey blindfolded. Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock leads an all-star cast that includes Trevante Rhodes, with Sarah Paulson, and John Malkovich in BIRD BOX, a compelling new thriller from Academy Award® winner Susanne Bier.
The film also stars Jacki Weaver, Rosa Salazar, Danielle Macdonald, Lil Rel Howery, Tom Hollander, Colson Baker, and BD Wong.
Bird Box will be launched globally on Netflix including the UK and Ireland from 21st December.
