What Is Songbird, Michael Bay’s Pandemic Movie?
As the trailer introduces, Songbird follows Los Angeles residents in the year 2022, at a time when COVID-19 has mutated into a worse version called COVID-23. The world is in its 213th week of the global pandemic (the same one we are currently living in). Eight million people have reportedly died in the United States in that year alone and there is a 110 million death toll worldwide. America is moving its citizens to quarantine camps, with a select “immune” few allowed to roam around the city, like Riverdale’s KJ Apa. His girlfriend Sara, played by Sofia Carson, is dealing with her own mother contracting the virus as officials get ready to take her away. It looks like Songbird will have Apa’s character attempting to save his girlfriend amidst the raging pandemic and America’s intense lockdown in place.
