‘Bird Box’ Review: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Remember A Quiet Place, which created a post-apocalyptic world in which aliens would pop out and kill you if you made a single sound? Bird Box is pretty much the same story, except it’s looking at the creatures from another planet that will end your days on earth. Lay your eyes on one of these extraterrestrials, and you immediately want to kill yourself — throwing yourself in front of a car, or bus, or whatever is handy.

Based on the bestseller by Josh Malerman, this adaptation teases us with monsters we never actually witness.

Unused concept art from The Predator shows human, monkey and lizard hybrids

Shane Black’s The Predator underwent a number of changes during its journey to the big screen, particularly with regards to the third act which was almost entirely reworked through reshoots ahead of the film’s release this past September.

One of the original ideas for the movie would have seen the Upgrade Predator unleashing a number of hybrid-Predators from his ship, and now we’ve got a look at some unused concept art for several of said hybrids, which include a Predator-Human, a Predator-Monkey, and a Predator… Thing? You’re guess is as good a smine.

Take a look at the Predator Hybrid concept art here, via DreadCentral…

‘Bird Box’ Film Review: Sandra Bullock Battles Her Fears in Thoughtful Thriller

‘Bird Box’ Film Review: Sandra Bullock Battles Her Fears in Thoughtful Thriller
There is no shortage of post-apocalyptic thrillers in film; audiences seem to be obsessed with watching, analyzing and thinking about when and how humanity will reach its end. “Bird Box,” the Netflix sci-fi thriller adapted from Josh Malerman’s novel, offers both an interesting take on the end of the world and riveting, emotional insights on survival, parenthood and humanity itself.

Director Susanne Bier (“The Night Manager”) uses a very intuitive and keen style that combines the wise use of environment, as well as the innate psychology of a woman facing an uncertain journey that requires her to ultimately face her biggest fear: connection. Many will be tempted to compare it to “A Quiet Place,” and while the two share many similarities, “Bird Box” differs by building its thrills on emotion rather than playing with the quiet anticipation of the unexpected.

People's Worst Fears Come to Life in New Trailer for Sandra Bullock's Bird Box

Netflix has released a thrilling new trailer for Sandra Bullock’s post-apocalyptic horror film Bird Box. Bullock plays a mother of two children forced to survive and protect them in a world that has been overrun by mysterious creatures that drive people mad by terrorizing them with their worst fears. This madness is so intense that it causes people to kill themselves. The most effective way to survive in this world is for people to keep their eyes closed.

This is unique and sinister film concept, and it looks to me like it’s going to make for an exhilarating thrill ride. I really like what I’ve seen from the footage that has been shared so far. I hope the film turns out to be as good as it looks.

Second Trailer for Netflix's Survival Film 'Bird Box' with Sandra Bullock

"Every contact we have had with the outside has brought us death!" Netflix has revealed the second 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. This just premiered at AFI Fest last month to very positive reviews. The post-apocalyptic thriller is about a world where an unknown force kills off most people in the world.

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in December 2018

  • Indiewire
Netflix’s December lineup has a handful of gems — including some films (e.g. “8 Mile”) that have been on the service before, and are now resurfacing after a brief absence — but there’s no avoiding the elephant in the room: “Roma.” The most important film that Netflix has ever released (and arguably also the best), Alfonso Cuarón’s stunning love letter to his childhood nanny is the company’s first legitimate Best Picture contender, and a game-changing moment in its history as a distributor; “Roma” even inspired the streaming giant to flip its usual script upside down and open the film theatrically in advance of its online premiere. After winning the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, and sweeping the New York Film Critics Circle’s top awards, “Roma” will finally be available to Netflix subscribers around the globe.

‘Bird Box’ Review: Netflix’s Sandra Bullock Thriller Is So Intense You’ll Want to Cover Your Eyes — AFI Fest
If ever you find yourself trying to survive the end of the world, don’t look to Malorie (Sandra Bullock) for an inspiring pep talk. “Bird Box” begins with her telling two small children to do exactly as she says if they want to survive, with the most important lesson being to never remove their blindfolds — if they look at it, they will die. We won’t know what it is for some time, but the urgency in her voice comes across to us just as clearly as it does to Boy and Girl (the meaning of whose names — or lack thereof — will likewise be made clear in time).

Bullock convincingly transforms herself into a gritty survivalist in Susanne Bier’s gripping thriller, which brings to mind everything from “The Road” to “The Happening” as it carves a space for itself in the post-apocalyptic canon. She’s joined in the ensemble by Trevante Rhodes,

‘Bird Box’s Sandra Bullock Donned A Blindfold For Fresh Take On Motherhood – The Contenders La
While Sandra Bullock would eventually fall in love with Bird Box—a Netflix horror-thriller based on a novel by Josh Malerman and directed by Susanne Bier—the Oscar winner had quite a different reaction to the material in her first interaction with it some years ago.

“I thought it was intriguing, but there was something about it that didn’t click,” she told Deadline’s Pete Hammond during the Netflix film’s panel at Deadline’s The Contenders award-season event Saturday at the DGA Theater. “I don’t relate to someone who doesn’t want to be a mother; I don’t relate to someone who isn’t warm and can’t love freely. Then I read it a few years ago and it hit me in a way that I can’t explain.”

Directed by Bier from Eric Heisserer’s script, Bird Box follows Malorie (Bullock), a woman who
