About Bird Box:
When a mysterious force decimates the world’s population, only one thing is certain: if you see it, you take your life. Facing the unknown, Malorie finds love, hope and a new beginning only for it to unravel. Now she must flee with her two children down a treacherous river to the one place left that may offer sanctuary. But to survive, they’ll have to undertake the perilous two-day journey blindfolded. Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock leads an all-star cast that includes Trevante Rhodes, with Sarah Paulson, and John Malkovich in #BirdBox, a compelling new thriller from Academy Award® winner Susanne Bier.
‘Bird Box’ is based on the 2014 book by Josh Malerman, the lead singer of the band the High Strung. It is Malerman’s first published novel although he written 14 before Bird Box but never shopped them around.
The High Strung formed in Detroit in 2000.
