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

New Netflix film 'Bird Box' smashes streaming record

Early on in "Bird Box" we see Sandra Bullock's character Mallory painting a picture that kind of looks like The Last Supper. Netflix claimed to have 137.1 million streaming subscribers as of the end of September, which means that nearly one-third of them watched the movie in its first week of release.

"Bird Box" was a prestige effort for Netflix, one of three films the company released in theaters before showing them on its streaming service this year.

In a tweet from Netflix's official account, the streaming platform revealed that 45,037,125 accounts watched Bird Box in its first 7 days. "I'm fairly sure Bird Box is a phenomenon of some sort, but without verifiable data or comparative data for context, a Netflix-affiliated Twitter feed coming down from on-high with suspiciously specific (and yet entirely vague) data is the epitome of nonsense", he tweeted.

Netflix has about 137 million subscribers worldwide (as of October), about 57 percent of them in the United States. Every Netflix "account" accommodates five users.

Guardiola not changing Man City style
Kevin De Bruyne missed Sunday's Southampton clash with a muscular issue and will be a doubt for the pivotal Liverpool clash. Guardiola went on to describe Liverpool as the "best team in Europe" at the moment and among "the top four in the world".

Virginia crushes SC 28-0, wins Belk Bowl
South Carolina's highly-touted offense finally came alive late in the third quarter with a 23-yard and 37-yard pass from Bentley. Sophomore placekicker Brian Delaney's extra point was true to put Virginia up 7-0 with 3:30 to go in the first.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth reportedly got married
A source said: "They always wanted a small, private celebration with family and close friends and that's what they got". First reports of the small December 23 ceremony emerged on social media on Christmas Eve.

So 45 million accounts have not seen the entirety of Bird Box - they've seen most of it, and it's a safe bet that many of them are not US -based accounts.

"I posit most people were unaware of "Bird Box" until they saw it on their Netflix account, or heard about it from friends", Lefsetz wrote in his blog. It's also unclear - though presumable - that the number reflects accounts that have accessed the film globally. Each account was only counted once.

Netflix's buzzy new horror film "Bird Box" has people online attempting a new kind of challenge: going about everyday tasks blindfolded.

The music industry analyst Bob Lefsetz had arguably the most important take on the numbers, noting they may portend a change in how movies are made and marketed.
