The author behind the Bird Box novel that inspired the Netflix movie of the same name reveals that the book will get a sequel. Bird Box became a cultural phenomenon when it released on Netflix in late 2018. Although the movie received little marketing before its release, it went on to inspire a series of memes and wild fan theories, as well as a series of dangerous Bird Boxchallenges.
The story of Bird Box is simple enough as it follows a woman, Malorie (Sandra Bullock), who must travel down a river with two children, Boy and Girl, while blindfolded to avoid mysterious monsters that when seen, cause people to commit suicide. Through a series of flashbacks, viewers learn about how this terrifying world came to be, although the movie never went so far as to show what the monsters look like. Bird Box became a massive hit for Netflix; the company claimed over 45 million people watched it during the first week it was on the streaming subscription service. The film also became a social media phenomenon with people discussing it months after its release.
