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