The trailer for the Black Mirror feature film just dropped and it's out this Christmas
Less than 24 hours before the full movie is released on Netflix
We have our first proper look at Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, the Netflix "event" that is set for release on the streaming platform this weekend.
The official synopsis is as follows: "In 1984, a young programmer begins to question reality as he adapts a sprawling fantasy novel into a video game and soon faces a mind-mangling challenge. Welcome back."
Over the pounding soundtrack of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's iconic 'Relax', we see a young man join a gaming company, offered drugs, and before long we get something that seems to be somewhere in between David Cronenberg's techno-horror Videodrome and David Fincher's psychological thriller The Game.
With another David behind the camera (David Slade, director of 30 Days Of Night and Black Mirror episode 'Metal Head' - which you can spot in the trailer), and Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk) and Will Poulter (The Revanant) as the stars, it is fair to say that we are very excited to get our eyes on the finished product.
Especially since the wording of "a Black Mirror event", tied in with the statements throughout the trailer, "Change Your Mind", "Change Your Past", etc., would seem to indicate that the rumours that this might actually be an interactive episode could be true.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch will be released on Netflix on Friday 28 December.
