NETFLIX has given fans their first look at the Black Mirror movie Bandersnatch ahead of its premiere tomorrow.
The chilling trailer, to the tune of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s Relax, is set in the offices of a game company that plans to become “a successful factory – like Motown, but for video games!”
In the background is a poster for ‘Metl Hedd’ featuring the robot dog – a reference to the Black Mirror season 4 episode Metalhead.
In the trailer, Stefan’s character confesses to his therapist that he is having strange dreams.
The therapist then asks him if he hears voices.
He replies: “No voice, but there is something”.
The official synopsis for Black Mirror: Bandersnatch reads, “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-bending challenge. Happy to see you again.”
Bandersnatch, which at an hour and 30 minutes will be the longest Black Mirror ever produced, is due to air on December 28 – giving anyone lucky enough to be off work plenty of time to watch it.
The film’s tagline, which will arrive with the long-awaited fifth series, is given as “Be back” – the meaning of which is uncertain.
This summer, parts of Croydon have been transformed into 1980s-style showcases for the film, including a WHSmith shop full of music and books from the era.

The producers previously revealed that the new season of Black Mirror will include a “Choose Your Own Adventure” themed episode.
This will allow viewers to interact with the episode and dictate what happens next.
