Netflix has removed news reel footage of a 2013 rail disaster which features in the movie Bird Box, but only two months after complaints from viewers.
The domination of apocalyptic thriller Bird Box continues. Netflix is now reporting that the movie, which stars Sandra Bullock, has been watched by 80 million subscribers in the four weeks it’s been on release on the streaming service. In a letter to shareholders, via Variety, executives said that ‘We are seeing high repeat viewing’.
The conclusion of Alfonso Cuarón's heart-stopping Gravity saw an exhausted, traumatised Sandra Bullock crash landing on Earth against all the odds.
Netflix has called for an end to the online viral trend the 'Bird Box Challenge', spawned by its recent horror movie release.
Sandra Bullock has donated $1 million to the Red Cross, to help the relief effort following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
