“Bird Box” was a bit of a hit for Netflix in 2018. The post-apocalyptic horror-thriller starred Sandra Bullock and was directed by Susanne Bier. Bullock plays a character named Malorie Hayes who travels through a world filled with some sort of creature or entity that causes people who look at them to kill themselves.
Five years later, we get a Spanish-language international spin-off set in Barcelona. Filmmakers, Alex and David Pastor wrote and directed “Bird Box Barcelona”. Netflix has released a trailer for the film which you can check out below.
“Bird Box Barcelona” looks like an excellent sequel to the original. On the face of it, the film is going to show us a lot more days when people were still trying to figure out what was going on. From there, we’ll see some of the characters navigate this newly destroyed world with evolving creatures.
The Netflix film stars Mario Casas, Georgina Campbell, Alexandra Howard, Naila Schuberth, Diego Bald, Patrick Criado, Lola Dueñas, Gonzalo De Castro, Michelle Jenner and Leonardo Sbaraglia.
The film’s executive producers are Susanne Bier, Josh Malerman, Ryan Lewis, Ainsley Davies for Chris Morgan Productions and Brian Williams for Dylan Clark Productions.
