‘Bird Box’ Honest Trailer: Netflix Canceled a Blind Superhero Show for This?

Netflix famously canceled Daredevil, the Marvel series about a blind superhero. But they went ahead and produced the adaptation of Josh Malerman’s novel Bird Box. Apparently it had a better chance of survival for those without the ability to see. The result was a more grisly, less subtle, subpar retread of A Quiet Place, and Honest Trailers couldn’t resist taking some jabs at the movie, even though it didn’t get a traditional home video release.

Superhero Aquaman strikes out on his own in a thrilling (if overlong) voyage, writes BRIAN VINER

Aquaman (12A) Verdict: Ocean-going nuttiness Rating: A loopy combination of superhero movie, Bond film, the legend of King Arthur, David Attenborough’s Blue Planet and for those old enough to recall ITV’s World Of Sport, the Saturday afternoon wrestling from Brent Town Hall, Aquaman is like the weirdest dream you will ever have. It is also at least 25 minutes too long, thereby accomplishing the neat trick of being both a blast and a bore. It begins with Nicole Kidman, looking even more airb...
