Plot

'Bird Box' is the newest thriller by Academy Award winner director Susanne Bier ('In a Better World'). Set in the near future, this post-apocalyptic film tells the story of a mother, played by Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock, and her two young children who are among the survivors after an alien invasion drives a large swathe of the Earth's population to bloody violence, sparked by simply looking at one of the creatures. Facing a perilous twenty mile journey on a small rowing boat while blindfolded, the family will have to rely on her wits and her children's trained ears. Sarah Paulson, Trevante Rhodes and John Malkovich complete the cast of the film. Eric Heisserer ('Arrival') pens the script of the movie which is based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Josh Malerman.

Trivia

Green man with baby face

In a December 21, 2018 interview with "Bloody Disgusting," it was mentioned that the producers wanted the creatures to appear at some point. They even designed a creature and shot a scene with one. Sandra Bullock described the creature as "a green man with a horrific baby face." It was discarded because it made the scene funny.

26 years older

A relationship forms between Malorie and Tom. While films and television more commonly pair older men with younger women, in this case, Sandra Bullock is 26 years older than her on-screen beau Trevante Rhodes.

Be my sister

Sandra Bullock personally asked Sarah Paulson to play her sister in the film.
