More Than 45 Million Accounts Watched 'Bird Box', Says Netflix

(It's the reason why so many are afraid of the dark: it isn't darkness that's frightening, it's the thought of what might be lurking within it that chills spines and spikes blood pressure.) However, as anyone who has seen Bird Box will know, the film took the complete opposite approach with its depiction of the suicides that the creatures cause, showing the self-killings in great detail.

It wasn't the first time the streaming giant has boasted about one of its projects having a major impact with its subscribers.

45 million in its first week is obviously huge and Netflix also revealed that it was the "best first 7 days ever for a Netflix film". Could the 45 million figure be compared to television ratings or even box office receipts? "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. Furthermore, "each "account" may include multiple views and viewers but is only counted once", the spokesperson added. "I want to believe it but just can't".

Indo-Russia talks developing in a dynamic manner: Putin
After the US' announcement of the withdrawal of it Troops from Syria.Russia and Turkey also agreed to "coordinate" their actions on the ground.

The Verge got Netflix to go on the record, though.

Bullock, whose character eventually makes it to a safe house by avoiding looking up at the creatures that are apparently flitting through the sky, offered a detailed account of what the monster looked like in the scene that didn't make it into the final cut of Bird Box. "Netflix is not up against the same barriers as theaters. Because of this, in no way does one Netflix viewer equal one ticket sale at the theater". But the company has not released its box-office gross for the movie.

"It was a green man with a horrific baby face", said Bullock. However, many simply riff on the prevalence of blindfolds in the film. "I'll See You in My Dreams' has been on Amazon Prime for two years as well, and I have no idea how many people have viewed the film on that platform". In an era when the inclusion of women and people of color is a rallying cry in Hollywood, Netflix could help push it forward.
