The "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch" trailer may be viewed below. "This isn't your mamma's (or teen boys") retro trip.

Black Mirror is back with Bandersnatch, a feature-length film with a massive twist: the story invites you to Choose Your Own Adventure. After all, it's the flawless setting and story for it.

It took 35 days to shoot Bandersnatch in its entirety, and as revealed in the THR profile, this interactive film was actually two years in the making. But there are also multiple variations of each ending, so chances are slim of you getting the exact same story as another viewer.

Fionn Whitehead ("Dunkirk") will star in the film alongside Will Poulter ("Maze Runner: Death Cure") and Asim Chaudhry. "If the character is victorious, you'll feel even more uplifted because you made that choice".

If you pick the "wrong" choice - that is the choice that doesn't further the narrative properly, a scenario will unfold, something will go terribly wrong, and you'll have to go back to the previous scene and pick the alternate option.

But as is classic Black Mirror, the story gets more and more complex, until viewers are forced to make disgusting, terrible choices. Yay! We also catch glimpses of a hand passing through a mirror (looking glass!) and red and yellow pills (no word on whether one will make you smaller/taller).

Real Madrid 4-1 Al Ain
It was his first goal for Madrid, as he continues to impress playing for the injured Casemiro in recent weeks. But Al Ain had missed two early chances to take a shock lead.

I can't wait to see this, although Black Mirror episodes can be hit or miss.

Black Mirror dropped Bandersnatch this morning - a fairly ground-breaking piece of interactive TV that lets you, the viewer, make choices along the way.

Black Mirror has always been a master of warping its sci-fi around everything from romance (San Junipero) to heartbreaking drama (Be Right Back) to out-and-out horror (White Bear), and with Bandersnatch you can nearly decide yourself what kind of genre you want it to be, based on what decisions you make. But you can't watch on Chromecast, Apple TV and some legacy devices, it said.

Entitled "Bandersnatch", the episode has its own dedicated Netflix page which describes it as "A Netflix film", and indicates that it has a 90-minute runtime.

So give Bandersnatch a whirl, if you dare.
