In Sandra Bullock’s new film “Bird Box,” she’s immersed in an apocalyptic nightmare in which people are seeing their worst fears and killing themselves once they do. It sounds like “A Quiet Place,” but with sight instead of sound.
In the first trailer, you can see Bullock alone in the woods, hunting for her children but with a blindfold on to avoid whatever might be her undoing.
“Under no circumstance are you allowed to take off your blindfold,” Bullock says to her children as they ring a bell to alert her to the “creatures.”
Bullock stars in the horror film directed by the Danish director Susanne Bier and written by “Arrival’s” Eric Heisserer.
Trevante Rhodes, Jacki Weaver, Rosa Salazar, Danielle Macdonald, Lil Rel Howery, Tom Hollander, Colson Baker, BD Wong, Sarah Paulson and John Malkovich all co-star.
“Bird Box” is based on a book from 2014 by Josh Malerman, and it will be available for streaming on Netflix starting on Dec. 21.
Here’s the full, official synopsis:
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.
