GAL APPROVED! Netflix’s Bird Box. The Simpsons Anniversary. Second Act with J.Lo.By Delaina Dixon | December 21, 2018 | Gal Approved
WATCH. We’re giving big props to Sandra Bullock. Not only is she looking absolutely fantastic at 54 as she stars in her newest film Bird Box on Netflix, the Oscar-winning actress also has Trevante Rhodes, one of the hottest young African-American actors out there, as her love interest. Bird Box is the story of a supernatural entity that attacks when you look. It taps into your biggest fears, leading to a gruesome demise. Sandra plays Malorie, who narrowly escapes seeing this thing while expecting her first child. The next several years of her life are a fight for blind survival, literally. Trevante stars as Tom, another survivor who has such chiseled pecs and abs it’s easy to see why any woman would fall for him. He and Malorie grow close as they run from the entity and from humans who are already black in their hearts, so they are immune from its evil. The film, which switches between flashbacks of how it all started and Malorie’s current situation of escape, is intense, suspenseful and long. You may have to watch it in two parts, but it’s on Netflix, so that’s something you can easily do! Watch Bird Box, now streaming, but maybe with one eye closed!
WATCH TOO. The Simpsons is 30! The DivaGals celebrated with members of the cast, who will experience a TBS (ThrowBackSunday) with the upcoming airing of the very first full-length episode of The Simpsons ever!
