What Happens When You Choose The 'Netflix' Option In Bandersnatch

For now, all we've got about Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, as the movie is officially called, is a trailer and a teaser blurb from Netflix.

Black Mirror is taking its interactive feature-length special to a whole other level. Bandersnatch is reportedly 90 minutes long, but there's 312 minutes of interactive footage, which allows viewers to dictate the events of the film.

The Netflix original series "Black Mirror" has been playing with our minds for four seasons on the small screen, with creepy and thought-provoking episodes like "White Bear", "The Entire History Of You" and "Nosedive".

The ability to choose your own adventure is available on most devices with the most updated version of Netflix on it.

Are You Still There?: Of course, Brooker (who wrote this episode) is never one to shy away from the metatextual, and Bandersnatch is the most brazen wink at the viewer that Black Mirror has attempted to date.

As you watch the film you are invited to make a series of choices, some big, some small, that ultimately change the direction of the story. Slade agrees with this assessment, imploring viewers not to overthink their choices and simply do what they would have done if confronted with such options in real life.

The formation of Iraq's government has stalled as well, amid intensifying discord between the Islah and Bina blocs. The strike destroyed the tunnel entrance and killed four IS fighters, according to the us military in Baghdad.

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. The movie, which stars Asim Chaudhry, Alice Lowe, and Will Poulter, will premiere on Netflix on December 28.

Your first choice, created to demonstrate how the interactive element works to viewers, is a fun one. Developer Jeff Minter plays Bandersnatch's author, Jerome F Davies. Stranger Things received a 16-bit video game to also mirror its '80s setting. In fact, you can see a callback to Metalhead in a poster on the office wall (as a previous game from the company).

Black Mirror is back, baby!

That interactive video's future already has the tinge of Black Mirror to it makes Bandersnatch a fitting turn for Netflix.

Asim Chaudhry appears as a boss or co-worker to Whitehead and Poulter's characters.

That was exciting, but today we've got the first Bandersnatch trailer, and that's even better.
