There's no certainty that the Netflix movie has any relation to the game, but it seems ideal for Black Mirror.

Bandersnatch was first teased in a since-deleted tweet by the official Netflix account earlier this month, which listed the premiere date for the title as Friday, Dec. 28.

We'll just have to wait for December 28 to find out what Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is.

It turns out that if you search for Bandersnatch on Netflix, it brings up a title card for the Black Mirror movie.

Netflix Any Confirmation by Black Mirror's Producers?

The new listing for Bandersnatch also briefly carried a run time of 5 hours and 12 minutes, which was spotted by news site NewonNetflix.info. SYFY WIRE has reached out to Netflix for comment.

While it was initially thought that this would be the first episode of the supposedly upcoming fifth series, it now appears it will be a stand-alone film.

Could this be Black Mirror's interactive installment?

Williams also noted that Bandersnatch was an ill-fated video game from 1984 supposedly about a group of ever-working "computer wizards" struggling to maintain their sanity. That dovetails with the self-referential image choices Netflix made for Bandersnatch's loading page (hat tip to Forbes for noticing that one).

Little is known about Black Mirror's upcoming fifth season, though Miley Cyrus was reportedly in Cape Town recently to film an episode. We have no idea, but we'll keep you updated as we uncover more details.
