Black Mirror: Bandersnatch movie air date confirmed!


Rumors about a Black Mirror movie have been floating around for months, and it looks like we will get to watch it sooner than we thought.

Christmas is good and everything, but a new season of Black Mirror is better, even if it traumatizes us sometimes (don’t lie, at least one episode left a permanent mark in your life). Season four was released on Netflix on December 29, 2017 and fans have been waiting for the new season to drop soon.

A fifth season has been made, but the release date is still unknown. The season is said to include an interactive episode, but like everything surrounding the series, plot details and more are a mystery. However, everything points to a very special release coming this week, and it’s not exactly the highly anticipated season five.

Titled Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, the project is the first feature film of the series, and now thanks to the site Korean Media Rating Board (via ComicBook) we have some details on the plot and cast. Thanks to the translation provided by a Reddit user, the plot reads as follows:

"“A young programmer makes a fantasy novel into a game. Soon, reality and virtual world are mixed and start to create confusion”."

The cast includes Fionn Whitehead, Will Poulter, and Asim Chauldhry, with David Slade serving as director. Slade is no stranger to the Black Mirror universe as he directed season four’s fifth episode “Metalhead”. You know, the black-and-white episode with the robotic guard-dogs.

But that’s not all: an image posted on the series’ Reddit page shows the above mentioned actors in full character. This is also the image spotted by a Twitter user on Apple TV promoting Black Mirror: Bandersnatch before it was taken down.

In addition to all this, fans recently discovered a listing for Bandersnatch on Netflix, which you can check out here. The plot shown in the listing simply says “Be right back”, with the “more details” section reading “this movie is… mind-bending, offbeat, cerebral, dark”. Another interesting detail is that the runtime for some users shows as 2 minutes, while others are getting 90 minutes.

Last month, Netflix’s NX Twitter account accidentally (or not?) shared a list of sci-fi titles coming to the streaming service this month, including Black Mirror: Bandersnatch on December 28. Now, as mentioned above, there have been rumors about an interactive episode. Well, it might not be an episode after all, but a full movie.

According to IndieWire, the movie features 312 minutes of footage, which points to Bandersnatch being the choose-your-own-adventure project. It’s only fitting that Black Mirror would go for an interactive story – it’s very on brand, don’t you think?
