Bird Box takes viewership flight for Netflix

Bird Box takes viewership flight for Netflix

But one thing continues to bug fans of the Sandra Bullock blind horror sensation Bird Box: just what did those evil monsters look like? "No we're not going to do it because it's not really about that'". The actress described the monster as "a green man with a horrific baby face", which isn't far off from the photos below.

In the hit film Bird Box, starring veteran actress Sandra Bullock, the characters have to cover their eyes to prevent them from looking at the entity that would inflict them with suicidal thoughts. "It was snake-like, and I was like, 'I don't want to see it when it first happens".

"It so easily becomes amusing", Bier told Collider. Just bring it into the room.

In Netflix's Bird Box, Sandra Bullock and the rest of the population are terrorized by inhuman beings that can take the shape of an individual's worst fear.

The key to the movie-or shall I say the hidden McGuffin-is a pair of birds that Malorie decides to adopt when she along with her housemates make a blind-folded trip to the supermarket to restock on food.


After all the work, even Bergholtz agrees that the monster was better not shown.

As it turns out, though, Bird Box may have been a very different movie if not for a creative choice to keep the killer presence off-screen, because a behind-the-scenes shot of the design for the movie's would-be monster has been unveiled, and, well, take a look for yourself. According to a report from Variety, Nielsen ratings measure Bird Box to have pulled in roughly 26 million unique viewers in the US alone between December 21st and December 27th.

It's probably best to not see this one coming.

The film has set records for the streaming service, with 45 million accounts watching the film in the first seven days since its release. One "view" according to Netflix, is achieved when a user watches at least 70% of the film. Again, the name of the movie is "Bird Box" and there are two birds in a box, and as Malorie and the others come to learn, the birds serve as a proverbial warning system of when these beings are in the area. In fact, Will Smith's Bright had a larger opening day (5.4 million as compared to Bird Box's 3.5 million).
