The Real #BirdBoxChallenge! Sandra Bullock Ran Into Camera While Filming Hit Movie Blindfolded

Written on January 11, 2019   By   in Uncategorized

Even Bird Box star Sandra Bullock fell prey to the hit movie’s blindfold challenge!

Netflix’s post-apocalyptic film stars Bullock, 54, as a woman named Malorie who, along with her two children, comes face to face with an entity that takes the form of people’s worst fears. This forces the group to walk around completely blindfolded when outside, leading to some funny moments on set while filming.

PEOPLE’s interview with Bier came just a few days after the streaming site was forced to hilariously tell fans not to attempt the viral meme for risk of injury.

The movie was a massive hit after its release on Dec. 21, with viewers spending their holidays on the edge of their couches, if the numbers Netflix has released are anything to go by. The streaming giant — which famously never releases viewership data — tweeted the film was watched by over 45 million accounts in the first seven days following its release.

“Took off my blindfold this morning to discover that 45,037,125 Netflix accounts have already watched Bird Box — best first 7 days ever for a Netflix film!” the tweet read.

Bird Box is streaming on Netflix now.
