Netflix has unveiled a teaser trailer for Bird Box Barcelona, a Bird Box spin-off that’s set in Spain and stars Georgina Campbell
A few weeks ago, the Netflix streaming service announced that they will be releasing Bird Box Barcelona – set in the world of their apocalyptic horror thriller Bird Box, which was based on a novel by Josh Malerman (pick up a copy HERE) – on July 14th. With that date just a month away, a teaser trailer for Bird Box Barcelona has now arrived online, and you can check it out in the embed above!
Georgina Campbell of Barbarian stars in Bird Box Barcelona alongside Mario Casas, Alejandra Howard, Naila Schuberth, Diego Calva, Patrick Criado, Lola Dueñas, Gonzalo De Castro, Michelle Jenner, and Leonardo Sbaraglia.
Written and directed by Alex and David Pastor, the film has the following synopsis: From the producers of the global phenomenon, Bird Box, comes Bird Box Barcelona, an expansion of the film that riveted audiences in 2018. After a mysterious force decimates the world’s population, Sebastian must navigate his own survival journey through the desolate streets of Barcelona. As he forms uneasy alliances with other survivors and they try to escape the city, an unexpected and even more sinister threat grows.
Malerman produced Bird Box Barcelona with Dylan Clark, Chris Morgan, Núria Valls, Adrián Guerra, and Ryan Lewis. Ainsley Davies and Brian Williams serve as executive producers.
If you’re curious about the Bird Box timeline, Clark told Entertainment Weekly: “The events that we see Malorie/Sandra Bullock endure in the original Bird Box are happening at the same time that Sebastian/Mario Casas is going through his journey. Being in Barcelona gave us a chance to see how surviving this intense threat in an iconic city poses different challenges.“
Morgan added, “Malorie’s journey was just the first chapter of this global, apocalyptic event,” adds producer Chris Morgan. As we were developing the original film, we often discussed what would be happening at the same time in different countries around the world. During this extinction-level event for humanity, how would families in Europe, Asia, Africa respond to the mysterious creatures’ sudden appearance around the globe? What unique challenges would people face based on their geography, culture, their politics? Bird Box Barcelona gives us the opportunity to expand and explore the mystery further.“
Malerman has written a Bird Box sequel called Malorie (buy that one HERE), but as you can tell from the producer quotes, Netflix is currently focusing on the idea of producing Bird Box spin-offs that will be set in various locations around the globe instead of making an adaptation of Malorie.
