Bird Box Trailer

"Do you hear that…? The creatures…" Netflix has unveiled the first official trailer for a new post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller titled Bird Box, directed by Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier from a screenplay by sci-fi writer Eric Heisserer. The post-apocalyptic thriller is about a world where an unknown force kills off most people in the world. The only way to survive is to not look at it. She survives but can only keep moving by wearing a blindfold and continuing with her children into the forest. Sandra Bullock stars, with Trevante Rhodes, Jacki Weaver, Rosa Salazar, Danielle Macdonald, Lil Rel Howery, Tom Hollander, Colson Baker, BD Wong, plus Sarah Paulson, and John Malkovich. This looks like a massive sci-fi movie! I'm impressed. And it reminds me a bit of A Quiet Place, with the enemy being something we can't see and isn't shown to us, something unknown. I can't wait for this! Looking forward to it quite a bit based on this trailer.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Susanne Bier's Bird Box, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

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 (Sandra Bullock) 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. Bird Box is directed by veteran Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier, director of films including Family Matters, Like It Never Was Before, Credo, The One and Only, Once in a Lifetime, Open Hearts, Bracia, After the Wedding, Things We Lost in the Fire, In a Better World, All You Need Is Love, A Second Chance, and Serena previously. The screenplay is written by Eric Heisserer (of Arrival). Netflix will release Bier's Bird Box in select theaters + streaming starting on December 21st this year. First impression? Who's in?

Definitely in! A Quiet Place with some of Spielberg's War of the Worlds vibes mixed in. Hopefully it has enough originality to stand on its own.

So, Sandra goes dystopian here. I guess she had enough of the love stories ...

Or maybe not getting big roles anymore ? Girl gotta eat ?

Bo did answered it (which I am thankful for). But honestly, she's on one of those morality tales path. This time 'fighting' for a family and children in harsh, dystopian environment which is a bit hypocritical since a lot of people fight for their families having much less than $200 million. She could pick less hypocritical roles ...

To be clear, my question was an actual question, not a rhetorical one.. but I do agree with U guys

Tester on Oct 25, 2018


Of course, everything is cool. But to take your question seriously I must answer with yes, she's probably not getting enough big roles. Although, there might be some vanity too in her doings. And besides, what else could she do? I guess, she's just enjoying the time of her life. Good for her, of course, but that will hardly produce some serious film with her ... Cheers and thanks for your response ...

Alex, what do you men it reminds you of a A Quiet Place ? It is A Quiet Place, just switched to a different sense

Tester on Oct 24, 2018


Eh. Not entirely. Maybe it looks that way in the marketing, but I have a feeling there's some original twists to this one. And at the end of the day, it's possible to love both movies.

Alex Billington on Oct 24, 2018


Yeah, the trailer does not look half bad, so yes I am hoping to enjoy this movie as well.

Tester on Oct 24, 2018


Looks intense. Star studded cast there. Here's hoping it delivers...

The novel for this was written more than a decade ago. I know, because I was one of the proofreaders. This was written long before a quiet place, in fact the rights to the film were sold right after the novel was released. It does sound unoriginal and the timing is very bad indeed because of recent films etc. But I can assure, the story was scary as hell. Don't know what the film is like however, but I'm looking forward to it.

Got a interesting cast for sure but it seems they treated this as a disaster film first.

Brandon Cole on Oct 25, 2018


Spoiler alert. Lame. Never got to see the monster(s) and too many unanswered questions. Like, what caused people to go nuts when looking at it? Why kill themselves? If the people can see it, why can't the viewer? Why does the Bulluck character never name the kids until more than 5 years have gone by? Boy? Girl? Makes her character seem a bit loopy. Seems like it was made on a shoestring budget with lots of hype to draw the viewer in as well as lining Netflix's pockets but leaves the viewer disappointed on a good 2 hours wasted.
