The trailer revolves around the struggle of a single mother (Bullock) as she looks for ways in which she could guide herself and her children to safety, in a world threatened by an unseen adversary. Much like the John Krasinski led A Quiet Place, which was the sleeper-hit of the year, Bird Box plays on the same theme, of enforced sensory handicap.

In Bird Box, no one knows what the monster looks like, but anyone who does ends up killing themselves. Hence, to combat the force, Bullock puts on blindfolds, inhibiting her movement and abilities. As people continue to succumb to the forces of of the unknown monster, leading themselves into horrific deaths, Bullock takes her family through a river on a small rowing boat while blindfolded.

Sarah Paulson, Danielle Macdonald, Trevante Rhodes, Jacki Weaver, Rosa Salazar and Lil Rel Howery are part of the ensemble cast, alongside John Malkovich, reports The script has been written by Eric Heisserer and Susanne Bier is directing the movie. The film start streaming from 12 November.
