‘Bird Box’ Reaches 45 Million Views On Its First Week
If you still haven't noticed it yet, everyone has been going on and on about the Netflix original movie Bird Box. In fact, the internet has been full of Bird Box-related memes ever since the post-apocalyptic thriller hit the digital streaming service on December 21 worldwide.
So it's not really that much of a surprise when the streaming giant, exactly a week later, announced that the Sandra Bullock-starrer has been viewed by over 45 million accounts, making it the "best first 7 days ever for a Netflix film!"
