Netflix Releases Bird Box Opening 5 Minutes

Ahead of its release worldwide on the service tomorrow, Netflix has premiered the first five minutes of the Sandra Bullock-led post-apocalyptic horror thriller “Bird Box” online.

Based on the novel by Josh Malerman, the film begins as a mysterious force decimates the world’s population and only one thing is certain: if you see it, you take your life. Facing the unknown, Bullock’s character 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. Trevante Rhodes, Sarah Paulson, John Malkovich, Jacki Weaver, Rosa Salazar, Danielle Macdonald, Lil Rel Howery, Tom Hollander and BD Wong co-star in the film directed by Susanne Bier and penned by Eric Heisserer.
