Bird Box Sequel

Bird Box was Netflix’s big winter event movie just before Christmas back in 2018. Sandra Bullock starred in the adaptation of Josh Malerman‘s sci-fi thriller novel of the same name, which takes place in the aftermath of the decimation of the world’s population by an mysterious entity that compels people to commit suicide, usually in a gruesome fashion, after they’ve laid their eyes upon it.

Through flashbacks we see the beginning of the widespread death as Sandra Bullock tries to find sanctuary with her two kids in tow. Now we’ll see how her story continues because Josh Malerman has confirmed that Netflix is currently developing a sequel based on his follow-up book Malorie, named after Sandra Bullock’s character.

bird box score

Last year, Bird Box became Netflix’s biggest hit movie, setting the streaming giant’s seven-day records and inspiring dangerous memes. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock, takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that has been overrun by monsters that cause people who look directly at them to kill themselves. For a movie that’s all about sight (or lack thereof), Bird Box would have to rely heavily on sound. But one of the key composers behind that sound, Trent Reznor, who composed the Bird Box score alongside his frequent collaborator Atticus Ross, was not very happy with his experience working on the Netflix film.

Time to open up the Bird Box universe again. After Josh Malerman‘s 2014 post-apocalyptic thriller novel inspired the Netflix mega-hit starring Sandra Bullock and that life-threatening viral “challenge,” we’re getting a Bird Box sequel this fall. But wait a bit before you stumble blindly toward Netflix’s homepage — this is a sequel book written by Malerman, who confirmed that his next post-apocalyptic “Bird Box novel,” titled Malorie, will be hitting bookshelves in October.

bird box challenge

Netflix famously canceled Daredevil, the Marvel series about a blind superhero. But they went ahead and produced the adaptation of Josh Malerman’s novel Bird Box. Apparently it had a better chance of survival for those without the ability to see. The result was a more grisly, less subtle, subpar retread of A Quiet Place, and Honest Trailers couldn’t resist taking some jabs at the movie, even though it didn’t get a traditional home video release.

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.

Take a look at the photos of the creature below, which Bullock previously described as a “long fat baby.” Read More »
