You’ve most likely heard about the movie Bird Box, seen the memes and seen the challenge that came from the movie. Well, Bird Box is a movie that came out this month that instantly went viral.

The movie Bird Box was released on December 13, 2018, on Netflix. It’s about a “mysterious force” that first showed up in Romania, causing unexplained mass suicides.
