Eros STX Global Corporation announced today that the highly anticipated upcoming thriller Songbird, produced by Michael Bay and the first film to shoot in Los Angeles entirely during the pandemic, will premiere in the US as a premium video-on-demand (PVOD) release on all transactional platforms beginning Friday, December 11. That’s right, folks. The thriller about an ongoing pandemic that’s happening right outside your window will soon be available for $19.99 for a 48-hour rental.
Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group, made the announcement today by saying, “The pandemic has affected every aspect of our business, from production to release, but Songbird demonstrates that a nimble studio like STX can find effective and profitable ways to make their movies work, as we have similarly with Greenland and My Spy during these challenging times. The show must go on. Songbird is a thrilling movie that will speak to audiences in this moment as it keeps them on the edge of their seats.”
Directed by Adam Mason, who also co-wrote the script with Simon Boyes, Songbird is a sci-fi thriller about fighting for love at the end of the world from producer Michael Bay, who previously brought audiences such worldwide hits as A Quiet Place and The Purge. Songbird brings audiences a new saga about the resilience of the human spirit and our ultimate desire for connection and safety.
Featuring an all-star cast including KJ Apa, Sofia Carson, Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Peter Stormare, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Walter Hauser, and Demi Moore. Also joining Bay as producers are Invisible Narratives’ Adam Goodman, Andrew Sugerman, and Eben Davidson and Catchlight Studios’ Jeanette Volturno, Jason Clark, and Marcei Brown, Songbird is bound to rub some viewers the wrong way given its sensitive subject matter and all-too-familiar setting. I mean, the stage for this film is literally the ground outside your front door. You don’t get much closer to home than that.
