Default Black Mirror

Has anyone else watched the 1st seasons? I got hooked on episode 3/4 of season 1

‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Trailers: Charlie Brooker’s Anthology Series is Back and as Disturbing as Ever




In addition to being one of the most gorgeously shot shows on television, Charlie Brooker‘s science fiction anthology series Black Mirror is also one of the most disturbing: its episodes are often punishingly bleak, bringing its audience to the brink of despair while offering searing commentary on our relationship with (and dependence on) technology. But while it’s not exactly “feel-good” TV, it’s also a really good show that manages to attract some of the world’s most talented filmmakers and actors to work on it.
So while part of me sort of dreads the idea of watching more, I know it’ll be worth it. It always is. And it won’t be long before new episodes will be upon us. Two new Black Mirror season 4 trailers have arrived, and you can watch them below.

First up is the trailer for “Arkangel,” the episode being directed by Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster, who has a history with Netflix behind the camera having already directed episodes of both House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. Foster’s career as an actor has been packed with tense and disturbing moments, so stepping into the world of Black Mirror shouldn’t be too much of a jump for her.
As cheery guitar music plays over the laughter of a mother and daughter playing together in the opening stages of this trailer, I was just counting the seconds until something terrible happened. And I didn’t have to wait long: the mother loses her daughter in a park, and after a brief but fraught search, they’re reunited. But things aren’t quite the same as they were before, and soon the little girl is receiving an injection directly into her temple. As you do. Rosemarie DeWitt (Mad Men, Your Sister’s Sister) stars as the mother.

Here’s a teaser for “Crocodile,” the episode being helmed by The Proposition and The Road director John Hillcoat. This one appears to be about a memory recovery specialist who gets in over her head, and her final line – “private stuff is private stuff” – seems like the Black Mirror equivalent of Chekov’s gun. You know that private stuff ain’t remaining private for long. Not in that show’s world. This episode stars Kiran Sonia Sawar (Murdered By My Father) in the lead role, and Andrea Riseborough (Birdman, Oblivion) has a supporting role.
Black Mirror season 4 still doesn’t have an official release date, but it’s worth noting that the show has been following a pattern over the past few days of alternating a poster release with a teaser release, so perhaps when all of those teasers have been revealed, the streaming service will unveil its official release date. Stay tuned to /Film for more Black Mirror teasers for upcoming episodes “Hang the DJ,” “USS Callister,” “Metalhead,” and “Black Museum” in the days to come.

‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Trailer: Enter the ‘Black Museum’




Black Mirror, the Twilight Zone-like anthology series that turns technology into more of a nightmare than a dream, is about to return to Netflix with a whole new series of anxiety-inducing episodes. Netflix has been slowly rolling out individual trailers for each episode, and the latest, for the segment Black Museum, has just arrived. Watch the latest Black Mirror season 4 trailer below.

Netflix has yet to reveal the release date for the new season of Black Mirror, but we know it’s coming soon. As if to underline the fact, a new trailer for each episode of the new season has been appearing every other day. The latest, Black Museum, teases the episode directed by The Girl with All the Gifts filmmaker Colm McCarthy, and starring Douglas Hodge (The Night Manager, Catastrophe), Letitia Wright (Black Panther, Ready Player One), and Babs Olusanmokun (Roots, The Defenders).

In the trailer, Wright’s character finds herself at a roadside museum run by Hodge. He proceeds to give her a tour, and, in the best Black Mirror tradition, bad things appear to happen. What makes this episode of Black Mirror unique is that it appears to be telling not just one twisted story, but multiple tales, using the Black Museum as a framing device. It’s an anthology episode within an anthology show. Now that’s meta. Black Mirror did something similar with their Christmas episode, Black Mirror: White Christmas.
The new season of Black Mirror has attached a high caliber of talent both behind and in front of the camera. In addition to McCarthy, other directors include Jodie Foster, Hannibal‘s David Slade, Sherlock‘s Toby Haynes, The Road‘s John Hillcoat, and Game of Thrones’ Tim Van Patten. Cast members include Jesse Plemons (Black Mass, Fargo), Andrea Riseborough (Birdman, Bloodline), and Rosemarie Dewitt (La La Land, Mad Men). Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker wrote all of the episodes.
As for what to expect from the new season as a whole, Brooker told Deadline, “The one thing I can say is that it’s the same, in that it’s completely different, again,” and added: “I can’t really say much else, except I think there’s quite a lot of stuff that’s quite out there. I don’t know if I’ve lost touch with reality, or what. But then what often tends to happen is I think, Oh my God, this is completely and utterly farfetched, and then reality catches up. So I was consciously trying to cast further afield, I think, in terms of what stories we’re doing. And partly also because I think I was so terrified about the state of the world, I thought, I’m going to entertain myself by having some kooky thoughts.”
While there’s still no release date, you can likely expect the new season of Black Mirror to arrive on Netflix some time in December.

‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Trailer: ‘Hang the DJ’ Tries to Find Your Perfect Match




Black Mirror season 4 continues rolling out the individual trailers for each of its episodes in the lead-up to its (still unannounced) premiere in 2018. This time, the techno-dystopic anthology series introduces the whimsical romance story “Hang the DJ,” which takes a withering look at the dating app scene. Yes, it’s trying to make you look guiltily at your Tinder app.

Black Mirror Season 4 Trailer

The quirky tone and upbeat jazz song of this episode’s trailer indicates that “Hang the DJ” may not be kind of soul-crushingly bleak send-up of technology that we’ve come to associate with Black Mirror. The episode spotlights dating apps gone wrong, with one ubiquitous app, Spiro Date, pairing people on blind dates for a limited number of hours.
“Join the system, love the system,” the text ominously displays in the trailer, a huge tonal contrast to the jaunty, comedic tone of the episode. “Everything happens for a reason,” the robotic voice of the app says at the conclusion of the trailer.
The trailer gives off shades of Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Lobster, which presented a dystopic society in which people were forced to either be paired off in couples or turned into animals. It’s yet to be seen whether “Hang the DJ” will take a similarly dark and traumatizing turn as The Lobster did — or any other Black Mirror episode, really.
Directed by Tim Van Patten (The Sopranos, Game of Thrones), “Hang the DJ” stars Georgina Campbell, Joe Cole, and George Blagden, and of course, written by the show’s creator Charlie Brooker.
“Hang the DJ” is the latest Black Mirror season 4 trailer, following the release of trailers spotlighting “Arkangel” and “Crocodile,” as well as “The Black Museum.”
Here’s the Netflix synopsis for Black Mirror season 4:
Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us.

'Black Mirror' Reveals New Key Art, Details For 'Star Trek' Themed Episode





Charlie Brooker’s dystopian science fiction anthology Black Mirror will take viewers to a world not unlike that of Star Trek in the upcoming season four episode “USS Callister” and Netflix has now released the key art for the episode.
The episode stars Jesse Plemons and Cristin Melioti, both former Fargo stars, with Jimmi Simpson of Westworld and Chewing Gum’s Michaela Coel. The episode is directed by Doctor Who and Sherlock alum Toby Haynes and co-written by William Bridges.
Take a look at the cast in the key art below.
This will be the first time that Black Mirror has entered the final frontier of outer space. Brooker compares the episode to a previous popular Black Mirror entry, “San Junipero,” due to how visually distinct it is from other episodes.
The fleet uniforms peg the episode as an homage to Star Trek, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Brooker says the story is less specifically about Star Trek and more a morality play about “tyranny and abuse of power.”
Producer Annabel Jones revealed some more details about “USS Callister,” the fourth episode of the new series, in an interview with The Independent.
“‘USS Callister’ is a space opera,” Jones says. “The challenges of trying to create that world, and obviously getting to play with the genre, opened a whole new opportunity. But I think we’ve put a clever spin on it. It’s a romp – it’s big and ambitious with lots of CG. It’s an absolute visual feast and really high octane. There are obviously more unsettling, poignant and slightly more melancholic moments, but at the same time, it is a romp. It’s such a treat for a filmmaker to be making a film this epic.”
According to Netflix, “Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm - a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us.”

The Latest Black Mirror Trailer is Black and White and Barking All Over


In this trailer for an upcoming season four episode of Black Mirror, dogs are not man’s best friends.



At least, not when they’re, so far as I can make out, murderous robo-dogs. The episode showcased here, called “Metalhead,” is shot entirely in black and white, and seems to follow a woman (Maxine Peake) being pursued by aforementioned robo-dog. Or bio-weapon dog? With Black Mirror, it could be anything, really.
Anyway, the trailer promises a taut thriller of an episode, and slots alongside the rest of the season four trailers for now as offering just enough to whet our appetites—with no hint of a release date.
“Metalhead” is written by series creator Charlie Brooker, with David Slade (Breaking Bad, American Gods) taking a turn in the director’s chair.
The fourth season of Black Mirror comes out on Netflix... sometime.

'Black Mirror' Releases Trailer For 'Star Trek' Satire Episode "USS Callister"

Netflix has released the trailer for the upcoming Star Trek-inspired episode of Black Mirror, "USS Callister."
The episode stars Jesse Plemons and Cristin Melioti, both former Fargo stars, with Jimmi Simpson of Westworld and Chewing Gum’s Michaela Coel.

Based on the trailer, the episode appears to be a hard satire of Star Trek: The Original Series, with Plemons playing the Captain Kirk character and Melioti as an exasperated officer on board the ship.
"USS Callister" is directed by Doctor Who and Sherlock alum Toby Haynes and co-written by William Bridges. Netflix released key art for episode yesterday.
This will be the first time that Black Mirror has ventured into outer space. Brooker compares the episode to a previous popular Black Mirror entry, “San Junipero,” due to how visually distinct it is from other episodes.
The fleet uniforms peg the episode as an homage to Star Trek, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Brooker says the story is more a morality play about “tyranny and abuse of power.”

'Black Mirror' Delivers a Timely Female-Led Season 4


Courtesy of Netflix
Letitia Wright in "Black Museum," Cristin Milioti in "USS Callister," Andrea Riseborough in "Crocodile" and "Georgina Campbell" in "Hang the DJ"


Black Mirror


All six new episodes of Charlie Brooker's dystopian Netflix anthology (launching Friday) feature female protagonists. "Why not?" says executive producer Annabel Jones.

Black Mirror has often been credited with predicting the future and when the Netflix anthology returns Friday, the fourth season will be no exception.But this time, it's not some seemingly far-off technological advance or even a politicized prediction, like the rise of Donald Trump, that stands out the most. It seems Black Mirror knew its viewers could use a dose of female heroes before closing out 2017.f201
When the fourth season of Charlie Brooker's dystopian anthology launches Dec. 29, viewers will have to watch all six episodes before connecting the dots that each one stars a female protagonist. "Hero" is admittedly an odd word to use when describing a Black Mirror character, since the series traditionally welcomes vieweassrs into some version of a bleak, nihilistic world of techno-paranoia and ultimately spits them out with a devastating shock-twist. After all, not until last season's Emmy-winning star-crossed love story "San Junipero" did Black Mirror deliver its one-and-only happy ending.
And since spoiling any of the season-four episodes won't be done here, it needs to be made clear that labeling the characters as heroes in no way equates to a happy ending: their plight is what threads these women together. Whether they are survivors in the traditional sense or not, they each reach a moment in their story where they are challenged to reclaim their power, stand up to some level of tyranny and fight to write their own ending.






The Jodie Foster-directed "Arkangel" follows Brenna Harding through young adulthood after her mother (Rosemarie Dewitt) tested a parental tracking device on her when she was young; "USS Callister" flings Cristin Milioti into space, where her fleet is run by a tyrant; "Crocodile," led by Andrea Riseborough, explores how memory when advanced by technology can help to solve crimes; "Hang the DJ" is a commentary on online dating with one of the singles played by Georgina Campbell; "Metalhead" pits Maxine Peake against machine; and "Black Museum," starring Letitia Wright, contains a reference to perhaps every single Black Mirror episode within its museum of horrors ("We just opened up an Easter egg hose and fired away," creator and writer Brooker said of the story, sure to be a thrill for dedicated viewers).
But, once again, having a predominantly female slate of stars was not intentional. Especially since Brooker wrote the episodes from July 2016 through February, and long before America's sexual harassment reckoning kicked off in October with Harvey Weinstein.
In fact, the theme hadn't even occurred to executive producer Annabel Jones, who has worked alongside Brooker for the entire series, when she spoke to The Hollywood Reporter ahead of launch.
"Charlie and I don’t tend to think about the stories that way. Sometimes, it just comes out," Jones tells THR. "But it's great — great! — that they’re all strong female protagonists. I think what’s lovely about the show is that it's not a strident statement. It’s more: Why not? We don’t even think about it from a gender perspective and I hope that’s progress. It’s more that we explore the best story and the best way to tell it."






"Arkangel," the Foster-helmed episode that Brooker has called a mini-indie movie, and "Metalhead" were two stories that, to Jones, simply made sense to have a woman as the lead. "Metalhead" notched two "firsts" on the Black Mirror belt — Jones and Brooker said they planned to continue to push the unpredictability envelope this season — as the story is told in black-and-white and at just 38 minutes, clocks in as the shortest ever of the series.
"'Arkangel' just felt right that it was a single mother with a daughter. It could have been a single father, but because of the way the plot turned out, we felt stronger that it should be a female parent," she explained. As for "Metalhead," Jones says a woman was right for the lead "because it was about her nephew and her bond with her sister."
But "Crocodile" was one episode they had initially written for a man, until Riseborough (who is currently starring on the big screen in Battle of the Sexes) came in and read for the role.
"Andrea read for one of the other parts and she really liked the journey of the protagonist and she challenged us and said, 'Do you think it could be a woman?'" Jones recalls of the episode, which was directed by John Hillcoat (Triple Nine, Lawless) and filmed in Iceland. "Then we sort of said, 'Oh, hold on.' We hadn’t quite thought about that. We questioned it and worked it. Apart from the physicality element of it — a requirement that plays out in the episode's first few minutes — we thought, 'How often do you see a mother reduced to this level of desperation?' Then we thought that was actually quite interesting, and that’s the result of Andrea’s role."
In a season that heavily deals with human consciousness and one that, thanks to "Black Museum," proves once and for all that all Black Mirror episodes are synced together in the same universe, isn't it nice that universe is a progressive one? Predicting a nice world might just make the new season of Black Mirror its most twisted yet.

Black Mirror Season 5 Has Already Begun Filming


Cashing in on the human race’s obsession with technology without realizing the dangers it poses, Black Mirror is one of the most clever and bingeable shows around right now. Now, less than two weeks since Black Mirror was renewed for season 5, confirming that it would be back for another batch of tech-terror episodes, the man behind the mirror has let fans know a little more about what’s coming next.


Speaking at the Royal Television Society Awards (via Radio Times), Brooker teased that the wait before season 5 may not be the massive gap that audiences have sometimes come to expect from his show. He said, “Season 5, we are filming one [episode] at the moment. We are about to start filming another one imminently. I’m writing the next one and then it gets a bit more foggy.” While fans are hoping for sequels to some of the most popular ideas that Brooker has plucked from his twisted mind, he stopped short of confirming or denying what season 5 will bring to the table in terms of storytelling. However, dubbed a tech-savvy Twilight Zone, the horror is sure to be upped in the wake of Black Mirror‘s continuing success.
From its humble roots on the UK’s Channel 4 with only three episodes per season, Black Mirror got a major boost when it was bought by Netflix in 2015. Since then, the show has scooped an Emmy thanks to fan-favorite episode “San Junipero” and given its cast the A-list treatment to include stars like Bryce Dallas Howard, Jesse Plemons, and Letitia Wright.
With filming nearly underway on two of the (presumed) six new episodes this early in the year, it at least hints that Black Mirror could be streaming on Netflix before 2018 comes to a close. However, given that season was an even bigger hit than its predecessors, got some of the show’s best ever reviews, and even sparked talks of a “USS Callister” spinoff, what did anyone really expect? With season 4 linking closer than ever to the Black Mirror of the past, the Mirrorverse is anything but running out of ideas head of season 5.
There may still be no news on who has been cast or who will be handling things on the directorial side of season 5’s episodes, but expect the usual cream of the crop as Black Mirror continues its witty take on a dystopian future. The Black Mirror season 5 announcement promised “the future will be brighter than ever” and if the show is coming back sooner than expected, it could be a ray of sunshine on the show’s otherwise macabre horizon.

Netflix's 'Black Mirror' Return Date May Have Leaked







A now-deleted tweet from an official Netflix account may have revealed the release date for the next installment of Black Mirror.
As reported by The Mirror, Netflix tweeted out a schedule of December releases that included Black Mirror: Bandersnatch listed for December 28th, which would be one year nearly to the day after the release of the previous season of Black Mirror.

It is possible that the tweet was pulled because this information was incorrect, or it is possible that the tweet was pulled because the information is correct but revealed a bit earlier than it should have been.
Bandersnatch is said to be the title of Black Mirror’s interactive “Choose Your Own Aventure” style episode. The episode is rumored to take place in 1984, around the same time that a real-life game titled Bandersnatch was supposed to be released by a British games studio. The game was never released to the public.

There were also rumors that the fifth season of Black Mirror would include episodes that were sequels to past episodes of the sci-fi anthology. Creator Charlie Booker has denied that claim.
The most recent season of Black Mirror opened with the Star Trek-themed episode “USS Callister.” Following its release, there was some buzz about a potential spinoff, buzz that the episode’s director backed.

"I was talking with Louise Sutton, who produced this and 'Metalhead,' and she cooked up a brilliant idea of spinning it off into a TV series," director Toby Haynes said. "I’d love to do a TV series of 'USS Callister' — it’s probably one of the best pilots for a space show, ever. And I made it! So I’m keen to see it as a TV series.
"I think Charlie [Brooker] might revisit it as a Black Mirror," Haynes says. "Whether I’m the one to do it, I don’t know. Being a fan of the show as much as I am, and being a part of making it, I’d love to work with that crew and cast again. It’s a gift for a director."

BLACK MIRROR Season 5 Returns To Netflix This Summer With Three New Episodes; Check Out The New Trailer

After experimenting with an interactive episode (Bandersnatch) earlier this year, Netflix is finally ready to deliver the next season of Black Mirror. The sci-fi anthology series, which “explores a twisted, high-tech near-future where humanity's greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide,” is set to return for its fifth season this summer.

Black Mirror: Season 5 will be comprised of three new stories “about the future we should have seen coming.” While each episode in Black Mirror typically stands on its own, it seems this season will have an overarching theme that explores humans’ basic need to feel connected with others, and the impact technology can have on marriage, self-esteem, fame, social media and mental health.


A trailer was released alongside the premiere date announcement, teasing the three intriguing stories and highlighting a star-studded cast that includes Anthony Mackie, Miley Cyrus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Topher Grace, Damson Idris, Andrew Scott, Nicole Beharie, Pom Klementieff, Angourie Rice, Madison Davenport and Ludi Lin.

Following last week's teaser for Black Mirror Season 5, Netflix has debuted individual mini-trailers for each of the season's three episodes. As a result, we also have the titles along with a brief synopsis of each episode.

As an anthology series, each episode stands on its own, offering its own commentary on technology's role in every day societal interaction. The three episodes - "Smithereens," "Striking Vipers," and "Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too" - will delve an overarching theme that continues to explore humans' basic need to feel connected with others. Set in a "twisted, high-tech near-future where humanity's greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide," Black Mirror's fifth season will explore the impact of technology on marriage, self-esteem, fame, social media and mental health.
