Bird Box Challenge goes Viral, Netflix Warns users against it

Netflix released Bird Box, a horror movie, in December. The holidays soon became spooky with this movie release. In this movie, everyone has to wear blindfolds all the time to prevent themselves from some killer force.

But the reality soon took a drastic turn where this Bird Box challenge went viral. The social media made this movie into a viral challenge, where users are posting their videos of blindfolds. Amidst all these happenings, Netflix is urging people to chill down a little and not to use this in their real lives.

The Netflix US has issues a warning on their Twitter channel, requesting people not to carryout this Bird box challenge and not to believe the memes.

Despite their warnings, people have gone blindfolded for several hours in their day to day lives. Such an irony for Netflix. The Bird Box movie became popular on Netflix all thanks to the several memes that released within the few hours of the movie release.

But these memes also contributed to the real scary and harmful blind fold challenges. Even though Netflix is nowhere responsible for the challenge that went viral over the internet, still this is a tough situation for Netflix to be in. As long as the memes were harmless, the right publicity to the Bird Box movie was amazing. But this challenge brought in a lot of negativity surrounding that.

So, even though the warnings are made, Bird Box challenge is unstoppable for some time now.

Black Panther gets 7 Oscar Nominations

Black Panther has created history by becoming the first superhero movie to have won 7 Oscar nominations, including the Best Picture Oscar nomination. With this specific nomination, it has created a massive Oscar history.

This movie was not just successful at the box office worldwide, it also continues to get attention in the award season too. Directed by Ryan Coogler, some of the nominations for which Black Panther is up include, Best Picture, Best Costume Design, Best Original Song, Best Sound Mixing, Best Original Score, Best Sound Editing, and Best Production Design. Now how many of these the movie actually wins, is something to be wait and watched.

The only superhero movie before Black Panther, that managed to win so many Oscar nominations was The Dark Knight, which had won 8 nominations, and had won two. Those 2 awards were Best Supporting Actor (won by Heath Ledger for Joker), and Best Sound Editing.

Talking about Black Panther, though The Dark Knight got more nominations than Black Panther, but Black Panther won the race because of the Best Picture Oscar nomination. This regard was denied to The Dark Knight, as well as all 17 of the previous Marvel Universe movies.

Since there is heavy competition for the said nomination, which include Roma, The Favorite, Green Book, etc., it is almost impossible for Black Panther to win the title of Best Picture. But just getting nominated for it is also a great achievement for everybody for now.

Currently, the sequel of the movie is under development, which will soon grace our nearby theatres in coming years. So far, no further details are shared by the team. Only time is going to tell if the sequel also catches the same limelight everywhere or not.
