Go behind the looking glass with these Black Mirror season 3 featurettes

Black Mirror Netflix Bryce Dallas Howard

Netflix's much-anticipated third season of the sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror will descend all at once onto your computer screens on October 21st, but until then all we have are the first two seasons and these two new featurettes, going behind-the-scenes on some of the episodes we'll be bingeing in the weeks to come.

The first featurette dives into the episode "Playtest," from 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE's Dan Trachtenbeg. It stars Wyatt Russell as an adrenaline junkie who dives into an augmented reality gaming experience. It will apparently be the most "popcorn movie"-esque of the episodes, though it still has a vein of darkness running through it.

The second is about the episode "Nosedive," directed by ATONEMENT's Joe Wright and starring Bryce Dallas Howard. It's a satire about "acceptance and the image we like to portray," and how social media presents a fake, heightened appearance that we start to believe.

Check them both out below!

Black Mirror:

is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm - a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us.

The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.

The remaining four episodes of this season are "San Junipero," starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw (CONCUSSION) and a nerded-out Mackenzie Davis (FREAKS OF NATURE), directed by Owen Harris (KILL YOUR FRIENDS);  "Shut Up and Dance," featuring Jerome Flynn and Alex Lawther, directed by James Watkins; "Men Against Fire," starring Michael Kelly, Malachi Kirby and Madeline Brewer, directed by Jakob Verbruggen; and "Hated in the Nation," featuring Kelly MacDonald, directed by James Hawes.
