‘Come Closer’ Movie Adaptation Coming From ‘Black Mirror’ and ‘Hannibal’ Director David Slade

Sara Gran‘s delectably creepy novel Come Closer is getting the big screen treatment, thanks to filmmaker David Slade. Slade has a long history with the horror genre, having helmed 30 Days of Night, Hard Candy, and episodes of Hannibal and Black Mirror (and also, uh, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), so tasking him with adapting this truly scary book is a nice choice.  The novel concerns a young, successful woman who slowly starts to become unhinged, and begins to suspect she’s possessed by a demon. ...

Netflix is Saving Your ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Data…Kind of Like a ‘Black Mirror’ Episode

In a move that, honestly, we all should’ve seen coming, it looks like Netflix saved everyone’s Black Mirror: Bandersnatch answers. The streaming service has been mining all that data ever since the choose-your-own-adventure dropped, and they’re being tight-lipped about how long they plan to hang onto it. While this may seem relatively harmless, all things considered, there’s a certain invasion of privacy angle here that seems like it would be right at home in, well…a Black Mirror episode. At...

Netflix Reveals Users’ ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Choices and Teases More Interactive Entertainment

Netflix is notoriously stingy when it comes to releasing any information about its user base and their viewing habits – except, of course, when that data makes the company look good or its social media managers are allowed to have a bit of fun with its audience. Now the company has pulled back the veil of secrecy and offered a brief peek at some of the Black Mirror: Bandersnatch choices users made when watching the interactive movie.

“Choose Your Own Adventure” Owner Files Lawsuit Against Netflix Over ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’

Netflix’s Black Mirror: Bandersnatch got a lot of people talking when the interactive movie debuted on the streaming platform two weeks ago, but it also drew the attention of Chooseco, LLC, the children’s book publisher who owns the “Choose Your Own Adventure” trademark. Chooseco filed a lawsuit in federal court today, saying that Netflix infringed on their trademark and is “causing confusion, tarnishing, denigrating, and diluting the distinct quality of the Choose Your Own Adventure mark.” Rea...

Netflix faces $25 million lawsuit over ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’

If you watched Netflix’s latest ‘Black Mirror’ production, there’s no doubt it reminded you of the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books. Now, the publisher that owns the trademark to “Choose Your Own Adventure,” Chooseco, LLC, is suing Netflix. The publisher is alleging trademark infringement, The Hollywood Reporter first reported.

Small-Screen Stream: ‘Atlanta,’ ‘Black Mirror’ and Other Streaming Series to Catch Up on in the New Year

(Welcome to Small-Screen Stream, a feature where we share the best television shows streaming and where you can watch them.) It’s a brand new year and the slates are wiped clean – which means it’s time to start playing catch-up with TV-watching once again! The endless viewing cycle never ends, but streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu make it easy to sit back, light up the screen, and get lost in a new series. I, for one, spent my holidays watching nothing but junk-food TV, s...

‘Weird City’ Trailer: Jordan Peele’s YouTube Sci-Fi Show Brings the Funny to a Futuristic Dystopia

Jordan Peele may be horror’s new favorite son, but the ever-busy writer/producer/director is finding ways to acknowledge his comedy roots. Jordan Peele and former Key & Peele writer Charlie Sanders teamed up to create the YouTube Premium series Weird City, a sci-fi anthology that brings the funny to futuristic dystopias. Set in a society where classes are starkly divided by the haves and have-nots, labeled in this case as “Above the Line” and “Below the Line,” Weird City stars LeVar Burton as a...

The Black Mirror choose-your-own-adventure movie has so many endings that viewers need a flowchart to navigate it, but now, we may need a bigger flowchart.

The interactive fiction of the latest Black Mirror episode is a thrilling indication of the direction games could takeA new episode of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror debuted on Netflix just before the new year. Unlike most previous examples, Bandersnatch is not a cautionary tale of how current technologies might evolve to further ruin our hearts, minds and communities. It is, rather, a period piece set in early-1980s Britain, when young video-game programmers were becoming millionaires selling t...

How ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Fails to Acknowledge the Rich History of Interactive Fiction (Or: Video Games Did It Better)

‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Featurette: How the Ambitious Netflix Experiment Was Made

Imagine: a universe where Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker said no when Netflix approached him with the idea of doing an interactive Black Mirror project. It’s a whole parallel universe that butterflies out into millions of other possibilities and choices until your brain hurts — essentially what Black Mirror: Bandersnatch achieves as Netflix’s first choose-your-own-adventure feature film. But that almost happened, Brooker reveals in this new Black Mirror: Bandersnatch featurette, which div...

Original Content podcast: ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ is a frustrating interactive experiment

“Bandersnatch” offers an unusual television experience — but not a very satisfying one. The new “Black Mirror” special follows Stefan Butler as he attempts to turn a science fiction novel (also called “Bandersnatch”) into a Choose Your Own Adventure-style video game. As the story progresses, Stefan gets pulled deeper into the mystery of what happened to “Bandersnatch” author Jerome F. Davies, a mystery that eventually involves parallel universes, government conspiracies and Stefan’s own family t...

‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Spoiler Review: A Course-Correcting Adventure Gives the Illusion of Choice

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch isn’t the first movie to test the concept of a Choose Your Own Adventure-style narrative with diverging pathways on-screen. In late 2017 and early 2018, Steven Soderbergh did it with his murder mystery app and HBO movie, Mosaic. With its availability on the worldwide streaming service of Netflix, however, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch has taken the concept to a new level, giving a global viewing platform to a new kind of interactive cinematic storytelling.

‘Black Mirror’ Producers Explain ‘Bandersnatch’ Alternate Endings, and Why Season 5 Was Delayed

Unlike traditional movies, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch makes the viewer an active participant in the story, forced to decide the fate of the main character. As a result, there are a slew of alternate conclusions, depending on which decision you make. In a new interview, Black Mirror producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones break down some of the Bandersnatch alternate endings, and confirm that the movie was so complicated that it delayed the release of Black Mirrror season 5.

‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Review: Netfix’s Choose-Your-Own Adventure Experiment is Entertaining Enough – At Least the First Time Through

Black Mirror: Bandernatch is probably (hopefully) the closest we’ll come to living through a Black Mirror episode — and that’s not as bad as it sounds. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is a choose-your-own adventure story that makes the viewer culpable for the doomed destiny of its protagonist: a young programmer named Stefan Butler (Dunkirk‘s Fionn Whitehead) who attempts to adapt a sprawling fantasy novel into a video game in 1984. But as he dives deeper into developing his game, itself a choose-yo...

How to Watch ‘Bandersnatch’, the Choose Your Own Adventure ‘Black Mirror’ Movie

Black Mirror is back with Bandersnatch, a feature-length film with a massive twist: the story invites you to Choose Your Own Adventure. Rather than unfolding in typical linear fashion, Bandersnatch has the viewer select options to further the narrative. Make the wrong choice, and it will cost you.
