Musician Trent Reznor has called his work for hit Netflix movie Bird Box 'a waste of f**king time'.

The Nine Inch Nails icon turned movie score composer took issue with the post-apocalyptic streaming studio movie, which starred Sandra Bullock, in an interview with Revolver.

“That was a f**king waste of time,” he said.

“When we got immersed in it, it felt like some people were phoning it in. And you're stuck with a film editor who had real bad taste.

“And the final icing on the s**t cake was... they mixed the music so low, you couldn't hear it anyway.

“We thought, no one's going to see this f**king movie. And, of course, it's the hugest movie ever in Netflix.”

Netflix claimed last year that the movie was watched by 45 million accounts, though the platform currently does not allow independent verification of its viewer stats.

Reznor, with his production partner Atticus Ross, won an Oscar for his soundtrack work on the movie The Social Network, and recently scored HBO's re-working of comic book classic Watchmen.

Reznor and Ross won the Academy Award for Best Original Score in 2011 for David Fincher’s The Social Network. They’re working again with Fincher on Mank, the acclaimed director’s biopic about Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, starring Gary Oldman in the title role.
