Sandra Bullock Is Not "The Lady From Bird Box", Children

Netflix itself is stirring up controversy after claiming that 45 million accounts have already watched "Bird Box", giving it the best first seven days ever for a Netflix film.

But Netflix can be pretty opaque about streaming numbers, and the tweet above is no exception. In fact, according to Netflix, the film was so popular that 45 million accounts watched it in its first week, breaking the record for most views during an opening week on the site.

Personally I'm not one of those people-or perhaps I should say, "accounts".

There is a slight difference: In "Bird Box", characters wear the blindfolds as protection against an unseen force that seemingly takes over people's vision by manifesting their greatest fears.

To counteract this absurdity, the rest of us started sharing our favorite Sandra Bullock movies.

After writing the scene for the film, Heisserer went on to explain that they did indeed shoot it.

On the few other occasions that the streaming giant has revealed numbers, it announced that over 80 million subscribers watched at least one original romantic comedy earlier this summer, led by the breakout hit To All the Boys I've Loved Before. Since its premiere on December 21, the original drama has been viewed by over 45 million accounts, the company reports.

I'd hope we can assume there's a good faith basis for saying 45 million, but there aren't any more details offered.

Netflix's original horror flick Bird Box is having something of a moment, if you haven't noticed.

"Streaming services have gotten away with opting not to share the abundance of viewership information to which they have access, but as more traditional corners of the entertainment industry feel increasingly jealous of their 45 million-plus pairs of eyes, the blindfold may be coming off", concludes CNN.

As Business Insider pointed out, it doesn't necessarily mean all those accounts wound up finishing Bird Box.
