WATCH: There’s a New Pandemic-Based Movie, and it Comes out Next Month!

 

A new coronavirus-themed movie, Songbird, directed by Armageddon’s Michael Bay, will be premiering on December 11th, 2020.

 

The dystopian movie is set in the future, in the year 2024, where the virus has mutated itself and is deadlier than ever, and the world has become all the more unbearable.  It is therefore set in its fourth year of lockdown, as the world struggles with a new mutation, COVID-23, which has a 50% mortality rate.

 

 

The unlucky ones who’ve contracted the fatal virus are also violently dragged from their homes into quarantine camps – anyone else getting “2012” vibes here, or is just me?

But don’t worry! It’s not as gruesome as you think… During the course of the movie, the protagonist Nico, played by Riverdale’s KJ Apa, falls in love with Sara, played by Descendants’ Sofia Carson – a woman he hasn’t actually met, due to the strict lockdown.

As for Nico, he is immune to the virus and spends his days fulfilling duties by dropping off supplies around the city.

 

 

Additionally, director Adam Mason shares, ‘It’s a dystopian, scary word, but it’s a romantic movie about two people who want to be together, but they can’t… It’s Romeo and Juliet, but they’re separated by her front door and by the virus.”

Incredibly, Songbird was incredibly shot in a mere 17 days and will be available on a ´(so-far-unknown) streaming service some point next year. And finally, Carson reminds views that, “Even though this is the pandemic thriller and it’s suspenseful and terrifying, the heart of the story is hope…In our never-ending dark night, the songbird sings a song of hope”.
