Here’s the list of upcoming Sandra Bullock films scheduled to release in the near future. We can only hope that the latest Sandra Bullock movie would be as good as some of her recent ones.
Bird Box (2018)
‘Bird Box’ is an American post-apocalyptic horror film directed by Susanne Bier and with a screenplay by Eric Heisserer based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Josh Malerman. The film stars Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Trevante Rhodes, Jacki Weaver, Rosa Salazar, Danielle Macdonald, Lil Rel Howery, Tom Hollander, Machine Gun Kelly, BD Wong, and John Malkovich. It had its world premiere at AFI Fest on November 12, 2018. The film released on Netflix on December 21, 2018.
The plot follows a post-apocalyptic world, picking up five years after an unseen force nearly drives all of the human population to suicide. We pick up the story at a chilling time, seeing a woman rowing two children down a river in a boat. They are all blindfolded because seeing the presence drives humans to kill themselves. The tale is told as a flashback and we get to know how the characters ended up where they are. The movie gets its name from the fact that the trio has birds in a box, that they carry with them since birds alert the humans to the presence of the creatures that could drive them to kill themselves. After several adventures and close calls, the trio finally makes it to a safe sanctuary, where they meet other survivors. All of this serves to promise that the highly successful Netflix movie could also get a sequel.
