Black Mirror season 4 gets a new trailer, posters and premiere date

Black Mirror

Alongside the release date announcement, Netflix revealed a trailer featuring clips from each of the episodes. While things seem normal, this is "Black Mirror", so some kind of awful twist is nearly certainly lurking. Jodie Foster directed this episode, which stars La La Land'sRosemarie DeWitt. It'll surely emerge before the end of the year, with six new episodes.

It's that sense of realism that makes the episodes we've seen of "Black Mirror" so far so unsettling at times, and with the trailer above and the little teasers from each episode we've seen in the run-up to the new season, we imagine that's something that's going to continue throughout the new episodes. Charlie Brooker's dark anthology series offers a bleak view of the present and future of humanity, but it's nearly always a mind-bending ride. "Crocodile" will toy with the idea of memories and how hard it can be to replicate them.

Not to worry though, because at least we'll have the Black Mirror to keep us company.

It's a lot to take in, but don't worry, it's a lot more clear once you break it down into episodes. We're also quite intrigued by "USS Callister", an episode that promises to give a Black Mirror twist to the classic Star Trek tropes.

Hang the DJ, directed by Tim Van Patten (Boardwalk Empire) and starring Georgina Campbell, Joe Cole, and George Blagden.

But rather than William Shatner's Captain Kirk helming the USS Callister, we see Captain Daly (Jesse Plemons AKA Meth Demon) in charge and applauded by the crew (Jesse Plemons, Jimmi Simpson and Michaela Coel) of the titular starship. "Metalhead" is a black-and-white episode all about being hunted by robot dogs, a la Boston Dynamic's Big Dog.

The proprietor vows that "If [an object] did something bad, chances are, it's in here".

You wouldn't tell us the Black Mirror season 4 release date until well after we'd breathlessly covered each trailer. The reasons are usually just creepy ones that say a lot about humanity's inherent failings.
