“What a wonderful world.” So says Louis Armstrong’s song, used somewhat sarcastically, in the new trailer Netflix has dropped for Black Mirror season 4.
After releasing a trailer for each episode, including Jodie Foster’s Arkangel and Toby Haynes’ intriguing Star Trek-esque episode USS Callister, the streaming giant has unveiled the full season trailer, providing more footage from the upcoming episodes and delivering a dark, foreboding tone.
The release date has also finally been revealed: all six episodes of the anthology series’ fourth season arrives on December 29.
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 series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.
