‘Bird Box’: Netflix Spent $19 Million On Hit Movie

Published: Tuesday 1st Jan 2019 by David

Netflix isn’t afraid of investing in content it believes in and is reaping many a reward because of this.

One example? ‘Bird Box.’

Full story below…

‘Bird‘ is fronted by Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes and Lil Rel (above) and exists in a post-apocalyptic world in which Bullock’s character and her new family must fight to survive in.

Today, after Netlix revealed it had been watched by 45 million accounts within seven days, the company has revealed that the picture was built on a budget of $19.8 million.

This gargantuan budget (which does not include marketing costs) was handed to the production companies behind the release (Bluegrass Films & Chris Morgan Productions) who- according to some sources- may be mapping out a sequel.

With its success in mind, we have two questions for you?

  1. How much do you think it would have made at the box office during its opening weekend?
  2. Do you think it has a shot at nabbing an Oscar or two?

    this movie is so overhyped!
    it was NOT original, innovative or even nearly as entertaining as everyone is PRETENDING it is.

    come on now…

    it just happened to get a lot of word-of-mouth promotion. people watched as to not feel like the ONLY PERSON who hadn’t.

    that’s the main reason for its success.

    NO ONE likes to feel like the only person who isn’t a part of something that’s having lots of ground level or media promo.

    I thought it was a good movie. Suspenseful, sad, funny, engaging…all that.

    Casting was good.
    Great Film.
    Oscar worthy…..maybe Golden Globe and SAG worthy

    This movie was garbage. How do you rip off the Happening, one of the worst films ever made? Next to a Quiet Place this was a comedy. It was comedically bad
