The science fiction thriller Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, will debut on Netflix and in theaters this Friday, December 21.

The launch is the latest example of Netflix’s strategy of releasing new films simultaneously in theaters and online.

In Bird Box, it’s best to go through life with blinders on. There’s a mysterious force decimating humanity. Those who look upon it are driven to commit suicide by their worst fear. Bullock plays the mother of two children who together must escape via a dangerous river in search of the one place that may offer sanctuary – but they must do so blindfolded.

The cast includes Sarah Paulson, John Malkovich, Trevante Rhodes, Tom Hollander, Colson Baker and BD Wong.

Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier, whose feature In a Better World won the 2011 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, directed.
