Five years ago, Netflix premiered Bird Box, a sci-fi thriller starring Sandra Bullock. It took the streaming platform by storm, amassing over 282 million hours viewed within the first 28 days of release. As of June 2023, it currently holds the title of Netflix’s #4 most-watched film of all time. (The top three include Red Notice, Don’t Look Up, and The Adam Project.)
Now, Netflix hopes to recapture the Bird Box craze with a new feature, Bird Box Barcelona. The film takes place in the same universe as the original film, but following different characters in a new location.
Check out the official trailer for Bird Box Barcelona below.
Here’s the official synopsis for the movie from Netflix:
From the producers of the global phenomenon, Bird Box, comes BIRD BOX BARCELONA, an expansion of the film that riveted audiences in 2018.
