What happens at the end of the "Bird Box" book?
If you still don't know, the "Bird Box" is based on his homonymous novel written by Josh Malerman, but in the original material of this book, Malorie doesn't exactly have a happy ending.
In his work, Malorie comes to his destination, even though he does not find the salvation he expected.

In the conversation with the pop culture side Polygon, director Susanne Bier explained why this gloomy changed the end of the "Bird Box".
"The film is a bit more positive, the film is in many ways different from the book, but it is also deeply rooted in the written work." The book also has some kind of positive ending, and I would not have wanted to make an apocalyptic movie that did not have a hopeful ending, I am not particularly interested in the audience who leave, from the movies or from their own screen, with very bad views, that is not really what I think … It's a hopeful note in certain values I really appreciate it, and I thought it was very important.
