Go inside the third season of Black Mirror with all new featurettes
Season 3 of Charlie Brooker’s twisted anthology series Black Mirror is due to hit Netflix in less than 2 weeks, and the streaming service have unleashed new featurettes teasing two of the new episodes. The season will consist of six installments, each telling an original story that explores the darker influence technology can have on human nature. The titles for the new episodes are Nosedive, Playtest, Shut Up and Dance, San Junipero, Men Against Fire, and Hated in the Nation.
From “Nosedive,” a heightened satire about our current obsession with rating systems to “Playtest,” a video-game inspired techno horror romp, these feature bites illustrate the diverse range of the anticipated third season.
Black Mirror – Nosedive Featurette:
Black Mirror – Playtest Featurette:
Created and written by Charlie Brooker, Black Mirror taps into our collective unease with the modern world and each stand-alone episode is 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 has been recognized with an international Emmy Award, a Peabody Award, a Rose D’Or and been nominated for a BAFTA® award.
The third season features an all star cast including Bryce Dallas Howard, Alice Eve, James Norton, Cherry Jones, Wyatt Russell, Alex Lawther, Jerome Flynn, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mackenzie Davis, Michael Kelly, Malachi Kirby, Kelly McDonald, Faye Marsay and others. Joe Wright (Atonement), Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane), James Watkins (The Woman in Black), Owen Harris, Jacob Verbruggen (London Spy) and James Hawes direct. Rashida Jones and Michael Schur served as writers on “Nosedive.” Annabel Jones serves as co-showrunner and executive producer alongside Brooker.
