black mirror at redone, but this time it’s in film form. If you are unfamiliar with black mirror, these are suspenseful, millennial short films based on ‘The Twilight Zone’. black mirror is one of those shows where you need a break after each episode to figure out what just happened, but you also don’t want the season to end. Well, Netflix has officially announced the title, premiere date AND trailer for the new black mirror movie and we can’t wait.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is the new title of the film, which fans actually speculated about a week ago after seeing it pop up in their Netflix streams. The film will be based in 1984 and the plot will be that of a young adult who successfully adapts a novel into a video game. The problem? Well, as always, there is. The trailer shows the video game starting to become his real life, as the main character really can’t see what is real life and what isn’t anymore.
This movie sounds so intense. However, the trailer is super confusing. We don’t know what the correlation is between the pills the main character takes and his whole life essentially turning into a video game, but I guess we’ll have to watch to find out!
The trailer for the film also has very intense text that flashes across the screen that reads: “Change your mind. Change your life. Change your past, your present, your future.” This reinforces speculation that Black Mirror: Bandersnatch will let you control the episode that freaked fans out a few months ago.
