Catfish host Nev Schulman had a very unusual cameo in 'Bird Box'

Director Susanne Bier and cast member Sandra Bullock arrive for the European premiere of the movie ‘Bird Box’ at Zoo Palast cinema in Berlin

Netflix itself is stirring up controversy after claiming that 45 million accounts have already watched "Bird Box", giving it the best first seven days ever for a Netflix film.

Netflix's "Bird Box" has proved to be incredibly popular since its release on December 21st.

A Netflix spokesperson shared with The Verge, that an account is considered a viewer "once a view surpasses 70 percent of total running time including credits". "There was not the scorched-earth publicity campaign employed by movie studios to make you aware of a film you most likely do not want to see". And it was of accounts, not viewers.

If you've been on social media in the last couple of weeks, you might get the impression that Bird Box has been a bit of a hit for Netflix.

When Smith spoke at the SCG, he said he felt T20 cricket would be adequate preparation for the World Cup if that was all he was able to play.

It is worth wondering whether such statistics can influence the filmmaker's career, given that they can't be backed up. The Netflix Original is directed by Susanne Bier from a screenplay penned by Eric Heisserer, based on the novel by Josh Malerman.

Netflix has never been one to share much information about their viewing metrics however, and details are still sparse about what counts as a "view" for the feature film (it's unclear if accounts had to watch the entire film for it to be a view, or if only part of the film has to be seen). We'll leave the quality assessment up to you, but we do have some theories as to what may have attracted viewers.

Second, everyone loves to root for Bullock, who plays Malorie, a cynical pregnant woman who evolves into a fierce mother and must, among other things, navigate a turbulent river while blindfolded. Bird Box stars Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, John Malkovich, and Sarah Paulson.

Because we, as a society, know that if you don't know Sandra Bullock and her very long career, you may be a young one.
