Bird Box

New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Macon, Georgia is capitalizing on the hype surrounding the Netflix thriller Bird Box. The film stars Sandra Bullock as a mother-of-2 who battles an unknown force to save the lives of her children.

Bird Box was viewed by 45 million subscribers in the 1st week of release, making it Netflix's biggest 7-day viewership of all time.

Sandra Bullock and Trevante Rhodes

After surviving an apocalypse that wipes out most of mankind, Mallory (Bullock) and her 2 children seek refuge with a small group of survivors. There she finds love and safety with Tom (Trevante Rhodes).

Mallory learns that a mysterious force causes people to go insane when they are faced with their worst fears.

Mallory, her children and the other survivors wear blindfolds to avoid seeing the mysterious entity. They are forced to rely on their hearing and other senses.

Bird Box

After losing Tom to the mysterious force, Mallory learns of a sanctuary that offers hope and a new life for her children. But the sanctuary is only accessible by navigating a small boat down a hazardous river. In order to survive, Marorie must complete the treacherous two-day journey while blindfolded.

Bird Box

New Hope Macon Church Pastor Chris Cabiness incorporated the film's hype to inspire his flock to come to church wearing blindfolds in order to fully hear his message of hope and survival.

At the end of the sermon, church members remove their blindfolds to face their challenges in life without fear.

    Black preachers always teach everything else BUT the truth! Anything for a Creflo Dolla! ?

    Her name was Mallory in the movie

  • tintin

    Sandra gave the entire movie away in a few paragraphs

  • Blaque Mahogany

    No, it wasn't. It's not a bad movie, but I think people were more enthralled by the concept.

  • Gloria

    Good movie but there are better movies on Netflix. Definitely over-hyped.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Very true some of these folks” need Jesus” cause it’s some very twisted minds on here that make outrageous comments!

  • Dainese

    I started reading and was like.. okay damn. Glad I watched the movie already. Sh!t.

  • Dainese

    I said this when it first posted.. but her name is MALLORY. Steve Harvey's wife was not in this film.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Her name is Malorie. Not Marjorie, auntie. Like this write up

  • dblogged

    Leave Christianity. Stick to the book. Upon reading the book for yourself and doing in-depth research, you’ll conclude that the religion Christianity is pagan and deception. The book goes against the fundamental teaching of Christianity

  • dblogged

    No, we don’t need JC. That’s a different Messiah. Stick with the true one, Yahusha

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    What’s the proof it’s not a fairytale

  • Harley

  • Li-Wright

    His subject matter is relevant and current and using it for his parishioners is a brilliant move.

  • dblogged

    I don’t understand your question

  • FukkFolks2018

    I had MAD questions afterwards. I told my guy I think I missed something maybe. He was like naw. They skipped over it lol

  • Harley

    People need compassion, a moral compass, detachment to material items, and to be thankful for what they have

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Right on

  • Harley

    Yeah to tell that he dies is all sorts of wrong

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I think it all goes back to these broken homes with no famliy structure

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I’m pretty sure the characters name is Malorie...send this movie twice ?

  • dblogged

  • Ms. Cree

    Pretty sure it is too, lol.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Read about the First Council of Nicaea they put a bunch of folklore together for the idiot masses to belive in

  • cpatterson_22

    Disclaimer: Put your blindfolds on in the church, not before you leave your house. People going ham over this movie. LOL

    I told my soon to be narcissistic ex husband that I’ll show him my (private) again when he shows me the bank account records and his paychecks he’s been hiding. He looked at me like a whole fool.

    True. Constantine. He took pagan (demonic worship) practices and mixed it in with the scriptures. You are right on. That’s why folks should leave Christianity. Nevertheless, him doing that doesn’t take away the truth from the scripture.

    I won’t call the blind idiots. But, we agree on Nicaea

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    It’s ALL tomfoolery every bit of it the only god is Mother Nature

  • MsPam

    The blind leading the blind is why we have so many problems in the world.

  • Indies beauty

    Omg this movie had my anxiety on 100!!! I was like "this shyyytt.... why??"

  • Wayup!

    I watched it and it wasn't believable that they could survive so long with only one or two mishaps BLINDFOLDED... It just wasn't believable to me...although the rest of the storyline was a thriller to say the least I just couldn't get with the premise...almost like the BOOK OF ELIA another unbelievable movie that didn't hit you till damn near the end that Denzel was BLIND and I know its a metaphor but it was stupid..
    I also didn't like in BB how the directors once again plays up the black man that leaves his whole family behind to take care a white woman and her kids...you always see the black man lament the family that he has left behind but he is never shown doing everything in his power to preserve HIS FAMILY or preserve HIS BLOODLINE... Also the only other brother in early in the movie that worked at the Supermarket... I knew his role was going to nothing but short... I notice these end time movies never take in to perspective that we will make it... or that we are even there... I wonder if they also believe that WE will be "spirited away" as the Bible says....

  • FukkFolks2018

    Lord. Goes to go read...

  • Wayup!

    exactly after it was over I was surly mad... like I cant believe I was all into that and somehow was bamboozled into watching something so unbelievable...like she fell TWICE BLINDFOLDED!!!! her kids feel maybe once and that was only because they were capsized...
    Bye Netflicks

  • Wayup!

    NOOOO

  • Wayup!

    that had to be it I watched it because I thought they were blindfolded just a bit but the WHOLEEEE MOVIE THOOO...

    Him and that family are pulling out all stops to stay relevant and hold on to a slither of spotlight! Their shoes viewers are done his shoe sales are down looks like their spotlight is dimming down! They just released a story that he purchased kim a 14 million dollar condo in Miami for Christmas NOW my question is as husband and wife wouldn’t it be their condo they continue to refer to property that he buys as something separate I just don’t get it

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    They tech anything but financial freedom and helping their congregation and others in the community. All that money they raise and folks homeless and living in debt the type of money they raise they should be using it to help fund businesses for the people in the church use it to pay off a few folks debt disburse the financial help throughout the church then start reaching out to the community. Smh but they won’t teach any of this

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Read an article where some white folks in Twitter was accusing Netflix of lying about the number of views/steams of the movie since there is no 3rd party that can validate that and that it would mean if 45 million people’s watched that movie then at 10 dollars a pop a movie ticket that would mean that movie made over 450 million if it were in the movies in less than a week despite all the negative reviews on the movies they claim the movie was gettifn really bad reviews and all of a sudden out of nowhere not here comes the memes they are saying that marketing made those memes and others started AFTER Netflix marketing pumped a lot of them out there

    Birdbox is an excellent action thriller. Every scene is rich and inviting. The plot and reasoning are food to think of. There's a sifting of the wheat and it is an interesting divide.

  • Allihave2say

    No cursing that I recall. It isn't for the faint at heart.

  • Allihave2say

    As for this ministry these pimpstors are prostituting every thing they can to draw in the masses and get that money. The church is more secular than the club. There was a pastor who said "These hoes ain't loyal.

  • Allihave2say

    Self promotion. They are not there to promote the word of God. They are the face and vision of the church not God, not the Word. #narcissism.

  • Allihave2say
  • Allihave2say

    None of these properties are designed to accommodate their children in the essence of childhood. On top of that they dress North like a club worker with depression. We saw their entire landscape in the snowy holiday videos. There was not one play gym, swing set or outdoor for the kids to run around and play with.

    The difference in the mothers. One day I went to IG to see Khloe's page after a news story. She had "baby shark" on her page, this tells me Khloe is having an interactive relationship with True. If Khloe could get over her own self esteem issues and get out of her own way, True along with Dream and maybe Stormi will come out mentally and emotionally ahead of the other grandkids.

    I do wonder about Stormi always look in the opposite direction of Kylie in every picture. Who is Stormi looking for.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Yes ma’am the white critics had much to say about it it was reported in the daily mail they got the tweets and all. The white folks wasn’t falling for it but of course the memes caught in quick and the people who wanted to drive traffic to their page reposted and also started making them as well. But they are claiming Netflix is behind this ?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    ???? You right good observation and stormi is looking for her nanny her real momma not the one that holds her for photoshots.

  • Allihave2say

    Or Jordan.

    And it's actually going to be the opposite, Melanin dominant will always prevail. There is no way a recessive pale skin genetically inferior organism is going to survive, they are already trying to do everything in their power to block the ever growing intensity of the sun which has been trying to take their asses out since they came out the caves.

    Alot of these pastors are pimps. I am so done with these kind of churches. I remember not to long go I visit a church with my cousin and the pastor was discussing house wives and why women need be a little bit more like them. I forgot the full message but it was hideous.

    12 cameras is a good one. Bad match is another good I've watched it multiple times.

    It was okay for a Netflix movie although Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich I think is his name really kept the movie interesting .The story of the love interest Trevante and Sandra to me was not that great.I did not feel the on screen chemistry between them.

    What black folks need to be doing is joining Candace Owens and others on January 20, 2019 for "blexit." There are black folks tired of the democrat plantation who will be exercising their right to spread the word.
    "“It’s undeniable that the minority conservative movement is growing. Everyday more and more of us are waking up to the realization that we are pawns in a white liberal game for power,” Owen told Breitbart News in an email Sunday, adding that, “2019 will be about pulling us all together— Black, hispanics, and asians who are fed up with the Left— to create a grassroots campaign against the poisonous ideologies of Socialism and extreme liberalism.”
    Black folks are waking up except many of you here who love following behind white liberals.
    Here's your girl Hildabeast patronizing black folks. Happy New Year
