BLACK MIRROR Feature Film BANDERSNATCH on Netflix Tomorrow

While it's not confirmed, there are a few hints that this will be the rumored choose-your-own-adventure, in which viewers will be able to decide what happens at certain points in the story using their remote.

The film stars Fionn Whitehead ("Dunkirk") as the lead character and is reportedly a choose-your-own-adventure style movie. Once you've made your selection (or once the device has for you), the movie continues without any black screen or pause to load, which reinforces the idea that you're actually directing the story instead of simply playing a game.

According to Variety, Bandersnatch can not be viewed on Apple TV, Chromecast and "some older smart TVs".

The run time for the film's default path is approximately 90 minutes, which is not bad really - ideal for a post-work or pre-bedtime viewing.

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

So what was the logic behind this new format? The viewer gets about 10 to 15 seconds to make a choice, so you can factor that in to your calculations.

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

Co-creator Annabel Jones said: "One of the most challenging things about making this has been the crafting of the world and the various branches, and also limiting the endless, infinite potential offshoots and different stories you can make".

Netflix has experimented with interactive TV before albeit on a much more limited and modest scale. "If it wasn't interactive, you'd just watch and probably be appalled and anxious and frightened for him in that moment". But for others, you will receive the option to do it over. So you might want to clear your schedule.

Looking like David Cronenberg's Videodrome meets an Atari 2600, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch will land on Netflix on 28 December - so we only have to wait until tomorrow for the mystery to be revealed.

The interactive episode was first reported by a Bloomberg report in October. In Black Mirror fashion, the author of this novel went insane and decapitated his wife.
