Netflix’s Bird Box has been the streaming platform’s most successful movie so far. They rarely mention how many views their content gets, but boasted that Bird Box has become the most watched movie in it’s first week:



In a very successful stylistic choice, the movie never reveals what the creatures actually look like – but that wasn’t always the intention. Originally there was going to be a seen with Sandra Bullock reacting to seeing the creatures for the first time in a nightmare scene, as revealed in an interview with Bloody Disgusting. She didn’t want to see what it looked like ahead of time so that she could react to it live in the scene. But when it came time to film it, Sandra couldn’t help but laugh at the ridiculously designed creature:

It was a green man with a horrific baby face. It was snake-like, and I was like, ‘I don’t want to see it when it first happens. Just bring it into the room. We’ll shoot the scene.’ I turn and he’s like this [growling at me.] It’s making me laugh. It was just a long fat baby.”

So what does this “long fat baby” look like?


Oh. Yes, it was definitely a good choice to leave this out.
