If you're reading this article on your computer or mobile phone, step away from the electronic device now.

Well, not right now – we have to explain why, first.

The new trailer for Charlie Brooker's terrifying third television series 'Black Mirror' has just come out, focussing on the eerie reality of when technology goes wrong and we're seriously questioning how long is a normal amount of time to spend on portable devices/whether we can live without technology for good.


In the trailer for the six episodes – which will be released on Netflix on 21 October – it shows various characters interacting with social media, apps and games – from a soldier killing someone in a game and a woman obsessing over how many 'likes' she receives, to a boy crying to his father admitting he is being watched via his webcam.

The two-minute clip features some famous names including Bryce Dallas Howard, Michael Kelly (House of Cards) and Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones).


Great reviews so far for season 3! Can't wait til October 21!! 🤓 #blackmirror #nosedive #netflix

A voice at the end of the clip says: 'We're genuinely empathetic as a species. We don't actually really want to kill each other', which as we all know in television means someone is undoubtedly going to kill someone.

It's like that phrase when someone in a horror film in the woods suggests splitting up. It's always a bad decision.

It's totally normal to dig out our old Nokia 3310s and move the a hut in the middle of nowhere where you can only get one hour of phone service a day, right?
