Black Mirror has done it again, but this time it's in movie form. If you're not familiar with Black Mirror, they are suspensful and millennial short films that are based on 'The Twilight Zone'. Black Mirror is one of those shows that you need a break from after every episode to comprehend what just happened, but you also never want the season to end. Well, Netflix has officially announced the title, premiere date AND trailer for the new Black Mirror movie and we cannot wait.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is the new title for the movie, which fans actually speculated about a week ago after seeing it pop up in their Netflix feeds. The movie will be based in 1984 and the plot will be about a young adult who successfully adapts a novel into a video game. The catch? Well, like always, there is one. The trailer shows that the video game starts turning into his real life, because the main character really can't see what's real life and what's not anymore.
This movie sounds so intense. However, the trailer is super confusing. We're not sure what the correlation is between the pills the main character takes and his whole life turning into a video game essentially, but I guess we'll have to watch to find out!
The trailer for the movie also has a very intense text that shows across the screen that says, "Change Your Mind. Change Your Life. Change Your Past, Your Present, Your Future." This furthers speculation that Black Mirror: Bandersnatch will let you control the episode which had fans freaking out a few months ago.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch will be available to watch on Netflix on December 28th. Yes, so tomorrow. A late Christmas gift! While we're not entirely sure how long the movie will be, we can only hope that a whole season of Black Mirror will follow soon after this premiere. You can watch the trailer below.
