Keep that blindfold on!
"Bird Box" doesn't have the best horror film ring to it, but it does have the best cast:
The Netflix thriller is directed by Susanne Bier, fresh off her Emmy wins for "The Night Manager."
You can let it scare you on the darkest night of the year -- December 21.
It's still another story set in a post-apocalyptic world, based on an acclaimed novel. There aren't too many other comparisons to "The Passage," but since that apocalyptic series just shared its first trailer too, it feels like one more must be on the way this week to make it an official trend.
Here's more on "Bird Box":
"Never lose sight of survival.
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 #BirdBox, a compelling new thriller from Academy Award winner Susanne Bier."
So it's like "A Quiet Place" but with sight instead of sound? Or "A Quiet Place" is "Bird Box," which was written first, with sound instead of sight?
Check out the trailer:
"Bird Box" will play in select theaters and stream on Netflix December 21.
