While there’s still no official release date for season four of Charlie Brooker’s anthology dystopia Black Mirror, there are exciting new snippets and surprises being dropped every day. Today, the trailer for episode Black Museum has dropped, as part of Netflix’s “13 Days of Black Mirror”, which will run until December 6.
The trailer shows museum owner Rolo Haynes (played by Douglas Hodge) showing a British tourist around his roadside “Black Museum” – a collection of dark objects with “sick, sad stories” behind them. The mysterious objects, “authentic criminological artefacts”, all lead up to the terrifying main attraction. Haynes says that “if it did something bad, chances are it’s in here”.
Black Museum features a small reference to previous Black Mirror episode White Bear, as a mugshot of Lenora Crichlow's character Victoria Skillane is shown in the museum. The episode also stars Letitia Wright and Babs Olusanmokun and is written by Charlie Brooker and directed by Colm McCarthy. The trailers for three of the six episodes have already been released – as well as Black Museum, we’ve seen inside the world of Arkangeland Crocodile. Black Mirror will be available on Netflix later this year.
