The Netflix Horror Hit Goes Global

It’s been almost five years since the first bird box movie dropped on Netflix. This year, we’ll get a spinoff set in Barcelona. The first film was extremely popular on streaming. While there aren’t really any box-office numbers or anything like that since it didn’t receive a theatrical release, the film currently sits at the fourth most-watched English-language movie in Netflix history (behind only Red Notice, Don’t Look Upand The Adam Project). The spinoff has been in the works since March of 2021 and will be released on July 14th of 2023.

The new film follows a new cast through a desolate Barcelona. Looking at the trailer, there might also be some kind of new threat. For those who aren’t super familiar with the basic premise of birdbox, mysterious entities have appeared on Earth and they cause anyone who looks at them to kill themselves. As a result of that, the world has turned into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. In the new film, a group of survivors in Europe must deal with this same threat that previously plagued Sandra Bullock in the first bird box.
