Netflix’s Bird Box Looks Like a Terrifying Answer to A Quiet Place

Netflix has released the first trailer for Bird Box, a new thriller starring Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock. You can watch it above.

The trailer is lengthy and gives a pretty good idea of what the film is about, while managing to keep things a mystery.

Plot Synopsis:

When a mysterious force decimates the world’s population, only one thing is certain: if you see it, you take your life. Facing the unknown, Malorie finds love, hope and a new beginning only for it to unravel. Now she 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. Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock leads an all-star cast that includes Trevante Rhodes, with Sarah Paulson, and John Malkovich in BIRD BOX, a compelling new thriller from Academy Award® winner Susanne Bier.

It’s hard not to find parallels between Bird Box and A Quiet Place. Instead of silence, however, Bird Box uses sight. That to me is way more terrifying than attempting to stay silent.

Bird Box hits Netflix on December 21.
