The trailer landed Thursday the new 90-minute Black Mirror Special, which debuts on Friday, December 28th.
The special could be the highly anticipated experiencewhich was hinted at at the beginning of the year.
It's set 1984. In the trailer, a computer programmer turns an adventure fantasy novel called Bandersnatch into a video game. In true, dark Black Mirror fashion, his task turns into a distorted nightmare, blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction.
The Bandersnatch Special is named after a creature in the wake of author Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland called Through the Looking-Glass, which also uses nonsensical language and surreal plot to narrate a story.
Black Mirror is a modern and darker version of the original Twilight Zone TV series. Creator Charlie Brooker often adds social commentary to convincing science fiction storytelling.
