Michael Bay's Pandemic Movie 'Songbird' Will Skip Theaters, Debut on PVOD in December

You’ll get to see the upcoming pandemic thriller Songbird a lot sooner than expected!

The movie, which was produced by Michael Bay, was the first film to shoot in Los Angeles entirely during the pandemic. It will skip a theatrical release and be released on premium video on-demand (PVOD) on December 11.

Songbird will be available for a 48-hour rental at the price of $19.99. The movie will be available on a major streaming service in 2021.

STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said, “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.”

KJ Apa, Sofia Carson, Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Peter Stormare, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Walter Hauser, and Demi Moore are featured in the cast. The movie was directed by Adam Mason and written by Simon Boyes.

'Songbird' Thriller Movie Imagines Life Four Years Into Pandemic With 'COVID-23' Virus - Watch the Trailer

The first feature film made during the pandemic now has a trailer.

The upcoming thriller, which does not yet have a release date, co-stars KJ Apa and Sofia Carson.

Here’s a plot summary: “Four years into quarantine the virus has changed and so have we. In the terrifying thriller, the COVID-23 virus has mutated and the world is in its fourth year of lockdown. Infected Americans are ripped from their homes and forced into quarantine camps known as Q-Zones, from which there is no escape, as a few brave souls fight back against the forces of oppression. Amid this dystopian landscape, a fearless courier, Nico (Apa), who’s immune to the deadly pathogen, finds hope and love with Sara (Carson), though her lockdown prohibits them from physical contact. When Sara is believed to have become infected, Nico races desperately across the barren streets of Los Angeles in search of the only thing that can save her from imprisonment…or worse.

The movie also stars Bradley Whitford and Demi Moore as a wealthy couple who may hold the key to Nico’s mission; Alexandra Daddario as a singer enmeshed in a messy and forbidden affair; Paul Walter Hauser as a disabled veteran whose best friend – a drone named Max – is his eyes and ears to a world that has left him behind; Craig Robinson as Nico’s boss; and Peter Stormare as the corrupt head of the city’s “sanitation” department, which seizes those infected and transports them to the Q-Zone.

The film was produced by Michael Bay and directed by Adam Mason.

'Riverdale' Stars Step Out in Vancouver After Completing Their Quarantine

The stars of Riverdale have been spotted out and about in Vancouver, Canada after completing their 14-day quarantine!

KJ Apa was all smiles while stepping out to get some coffee from a local Starbucks shop on Sunday afternoon (September 6).

That same day, Camila Mendes and Madelaine Petsch were seen walking their dogs together while going for a coffee run as well.

Lili Reinhart also stepped out on Sunday to take her dog for a walk while chatting on the phone.

Last week, Lili made headlines when she said that she feels “like a prisoner” during the quarantine period in Vancouver. The cast had to quarantine after arriving in town from the U.S.

Lili then said her words were taken out of context.

“Love it when my words are taken out of context YET AGAIN. I’m not complaining about going back to work, I’m incredibly grateful to have a job. I’m sad that I can’t see my family for months on end due to travel restrictions. FFS, leave me alone,” she tweeted. “No wonder people think I’m this pissed off girl all the time. I annoy myself having to speak up about this 🙄.”
