Netflix claims More than 45 million accounts have watched ‘Bird Box’

New Netflix film 'Bird Box' smashes streaming record

"There was a time when one of the producers was like, "No, you have to see something at some point" and forced me to write essentially a nightmare sequence where Malorie experiences one in that house", Heisserer explained. We'll shoot the scene.' I turn and he's like this [growling at me.] It's making me laugh. So the 45 million viewer figure for "Bird Box" over the Christmas holiday (assuming people watched the whole movie) is not exactly as major as "Aquaman" pulling in $900 million over the same holiday.

The film has stirred up a lot of positive feedback with Chrissy Teigen applauding Sandra and director Susanne Bier for keeping her up at night over Christmas with unusual dreams, and the actress is glad she signed on for a role, in which she's blindfolded for much of the action. We actually shot that and spent a lot of energy on, but every time I saw it, I was like this is not going to be tense.

While Netflix doesn't release viewing metrics, "Bird Box"'s numbers were surprising enough to have the company share the news.

"Does Susanne Bier's agent use this data as leverage on her next film?" "At first, Sandy was like, 'I don't want to see it, ' because she thought it was scary".

In the film, the world has been infiltrated by unseen monsters which, when witnessed by humans, drive individuals "crazy", often resulting in self-harm.

Bier told BloodyDisgusting.com, "Whatever those beings are, they tap into your deepest fear". I think to suddenly take upon a concrete shape in order to illustrate that becomes weak.

"My goal is to create original content for wide audiences, but how do I cater to an audience if I do not know what they are turning in to watch?" she said.

As noted by Variety, this statistic comes directly from Netflix, and hasn't been accurately gauged by outside parties. It's also unclear from Netflix's tweet how many people watched all of Bird Box (starring A-list actors like Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich) or even half of the movie, before switching to something else.

To be fair, it's because they sort of have been, but how much longer will that last?
