Michael Bay’s Pandemic Film: Is It Too Early?
What is Songbird, Michael Bay’s pandemic movie?
As the trailer suggests, Songbird will follow Los Angeles residents in 2022, at a time when COVID-19 has mutated into a worse version called COVID-23. The world is in week 213 of the global pandemic (the same one we currently live in). This year alone eight million people died in the United States and there are 110 million deaths worldwide. America is moving its citizens to quarantine camps where few “immunists” like Riverdale’s KJ Apa are allowed to roam the city. His friend Sara, played by Sofia Carson, faces her own mother who contracts the virus as officials prepare to take her away. It looks like Songbird will get Apa’s character to rescue his girlfriend amid the raging pandemic and intense blockade of America.
