Bird Box Barcelona trailer: Netflix digs deeper into the apocalypse next month

A trailer for the Bird Box spin-off Bird Box Barcelona has arrived online two and half weeks before the film starts streaming on Netflix

Three weeks after we saw a teaser trailer for the film and two and half weeks before it will be released through the Netflix streaming service, a full trailer for Bird Box Barcelona – which is set in the world of the apocalyptic horror thriller Bird Box – had arrived online, and you can check it out in the embed above. Bird Box Barcelona is scheduled to begin streaming on Netflix on July 14th.

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.

The first Bird Box was based on a novel by Josh Malerman (pick up a copy HERE). 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.

Malerman has written a Bird Box sequel called Malorie (buy that one HERE), but 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.
