Netflix Unveils Chilling New ‘Black Mirror’ Trailer, “Black Museum”

The $6 billion that Netflix has dedicated to original programming has been a catalyst for scrutiny, but out of that pledge has emanated some truly gripping content, namely Black Mirror, the futuristic compilation of mystery and suspense thrillers that took home two Emmys at this year’s ceremony. As season four of the series nears, Netflix continues its rollout of trailers today with one for “Black Museum,” an episode directed by Colm McCarthy that stars Letitia Wright and Douglass Hodge.

Mostly all of Black Mirror’s films carry an ominous aura, a sentiment that, in itself, could be an example of the program’s future-predicting qualities. “Black Museum” embodies that to a bone-chilling T, as lights flicker on and the “owner and proprietor” of Black Museum—a place for “authentic criminological artifacts”—Rolo Haynes (Hodge), shows Wright’s character around. She quickly discovers that it is no Smithsonian. “This place ain’t for the faint-hearted,” says Haynes.

The sneak peek at “Black Museum” follows trailers for “Crocodile” and “Arkangel,” the latter of which stars Jodie Foster.

Season 3 of Black Mirror was the most successful in the show’s history, as it racked up nominations and victories at the Primetime Emmys, GLAAD Media, NAACP Image, SAGAs and BAFTAs, including two Emmy wins (for “San Junipero” and its story, written by Charlie Brooker) and a BAFTA. It’s also a show known for featuring actors, many of them British, before they’re well-known to the masses, like Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther) and Rory Kinnear (The Imitation Game, Spectre).

Netflix is mum on a release date for the show’s highly-anticipated fourth season, but with cliffhangers like “Black Museum”—“There’s a sad, sick story behind most everything here”—they won’t get away with merely teasing for long.
