Bird Box – Review

2018’s A Quiet Place came in the nick of time because Paramount–the studio that released it–was on relatively shaky ground after the underwhelming response to Star Trek: Beyond (there’s no colon in the title but I’m adding one anyway).

It certain didn’t hurt that A Quiet Place was budgeted at $17 million and earned just over $340 million.

Now, if Paramount were smart they’d keep the budget of the inevitable sequel (relatively) low as well though I’m going to leave the box office future of A Quiet Place alone for a moment and take a look at Bird Box, which recently premiered on Netflix.

Bird Box was released after A Quiet Place–and likely will recieve little of the praise, which is a pity because I think it’s the better movie. And while most people will compare the two I actually think it’s more similar to M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening in many ways.
