The synopsis of Bird Box reads, “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 (played by Sandra Bullock), a mother trying to face the threat, 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. To survive, they’ll have to undertake the perilous two-day journey blindfolded, which restricts their movement, and opens door to all kinds of other dangers.”
Bullock is joined in the cast by Trevante Rhodes, Jacki Weaver, Rosa Salazar, Sarah Paulson and John Malkovich among many others.
