Black Mirror Season 4 Teaser & Episode Titles Hit!

  • LRM Online
The technology based anthology show, Black Mirror, has released a teaser for its upcoming and highly anticipated fourth season. Revealed were the titles of six new episodes of the Netflix original series. For me, the show comes closer to the original Twilight Zone, than say, The Outer Limits or Tales From the Darkside. The show's quality stories and overall creepy feel has brought us some of the better mind trips in recent memory.

Titles listed in the teaser include, “Crocodile,” “Arkangel,” “Hang the DJ” (which appears to star Rosario Dawson), “USS Callister,” “Metalhead,” “Black Museum.” The trailer doesn’t give us much to go on, a few short clips accompany each new title, but with no official synopses released, all us fans can do is speculate what the episodes will be about. Netflix did not disclose an official release date for the new episodes, but ‘soon’ is that we were told in the teaser.

Tomorrow’s World: Part 2 – Modern Sci-Fi, the technology around the corner and how it may destroy us

Tom Jolliffe on modern sci-fi, the technology around the corner and how it may destroy us…

As far as Science Fiction goes, the film and TV shows that audiences have watched over the years have often featured some sense of foreboding. What happens if… This could be James Cameron’s Terminator which shows a world in which human beings keep on pushing the limits of technology to achieve military dominance, only for those machines to become self-aware and enslave humanity. It’s our ever-growing greed and quest for perfection that ultimately pushes us further away from our own humanity. As technology develops, everything becomes easier, but at what price?

Like Cameron’s vision, plenty of science fiction films and TV shows warn us of the dangers of crossing human ambition with technology. As far as human technological development is concerned though, there have been huge strides forward since the turn of the century.

Kirsten Howard Sep 8, 2017

Some brand new images from Black Mirror's fourth season have been released. Have a look...

Black Mirror will be heading back to Netflix very soon for its fourth season, and ahead of the show's no doubt grim-but-triumphant return, we've got some first look pics for you to have a squint at.

Here's the first, from the episode 'USS Callister', starring Fargo's Jesse Plemons and Jimmi Simpson, from It's Always Sunny and Westworld. The idea of two of them together on screen is just irresistible; we can't wait for this one.

What Exactly Is Taboo About? The Scoop on Tom Hardy's New Show

  • BuzzSugar
While Tom Hardy is a verified movie star, the actor is no stranger to TV. Every so often, he pops up on Peaky Blinders, and he has a crazy-looking new series of his own: Taboo. He created it alongside his father, Chips Hardy, and writer Steven Knight, who wrote Eastern Promises and, not coincidentally, Peaky Blinders. The drama, premiering Tuesday, is also executive-produced by Ridley Scott, and it looks insane. Here's the beginner's guide to everything you need to know about the show! The Plot James Keziah Delaney (Hardy) returns home to London after years traveling the world. He's been gone so long that people, including his own family, thought he must have died on his trip. He's come back to claim his stake on his father's shipping empire, but the family's dirty business tactics affect his life in terrible ways. Oh yeah, and there's black magic involved.

Evening all, and I hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas Day. It’s time to add a little extra sparkle to your celebrations, with a Christmas movie-themed Strictly special. Frankie Bridge, Denise Lewis, Ainsley Harriott, Pamela Stephenson Connolly, Gethin Jones and Melvin Odoom will be taking a turn around the dancefloor this evening, paying tribute to all our festive family film favourites.

My money’s on Frankie for the win – she’s dressing up as Elsa from Frozen, so definitely time to gather the children around the TV like they used to in days of yore. Talking of which, Matt Goss is singing White Christmas, because Strictly is the 80s gift that keeps on giving.

The very first episode of the series to debut on television had a Christmas theme and was entitled “Simpsons Roasting On An Open Fire”.

12 Days of Christmas Horror – Day 9: Black Mirror – White Christmas (2014)

Black Mirror: White Christmas, 2014.

Directed by Carl Tibbets.

Starring Jon Hamm, Oona Chaplin and Rafe Spall.

Synopsis:

Two strangers stationed at an isolated Arctic outpost tell each other three twisted festive tales each with a technological theme and a connection to the dark pasts of both men.

We return once again to quite possibly one of my favourite TV shows currently airing, the dark sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror created by my personal hero Charlie Brooker, who ended the show’s run on Channel 4 by gifting us with a truly depressing and characteristically twisted festive special entitled White Christmas.

Again being that this is an anthology series, with this episode being comprised of three mini stories connected by a framing device which acts as a fourth story, I really can’t divulge too much without spoiling the episode too much. While I sometimes spoil other films (I’ve

Have Yourself A Movie Little Christmas: 2016 Edition

I’m guessing that you, just like most of us, have always had seasonal favorites when it comes to movies that attempt to address and evoke the spirit of Christmas. Like most from my generation, when I was a kid I learned the pleasures of perennial anticipation of Christmastime as interpreted by TV through a series of holiday specials, like How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and even musical variety hours where the likes of Bing Crosby and Andy Williams and Dean Martin et al would sit around sets elaborately designed to represent the ideal Christmas-decorated living room, drinking “wassail” (I’m sure that’s what was in those cups) and crooning classics of the season alongside a dazzling array of guests. (We knew we were moving into a new world of holiday cheer when David Bowie joined Bing Crosby for

Kelly Clarkson Is Dreaming of a White Christmas Remake – and She Wants to Star in It
Attention, Hollywood: Kelly Clarkson has had a lifelong love affair with White Christmas – “my favorite Christmas movie!” – and she’s available for a remake.

“You know how they’re doing musicals on TV now?” she said. “I really want to do that with that movie.”

The singer nominated herself (for the Rosemary Clooney part, no doubt) during her holiday musical extravaganza in Nashville on Friday night. And by all means take her seriously, because she’s earned the right to call herself a queen of Christmas music, especially in her adopted hometown.

The most disturbing, unnerving Christmas TV of yore

Wesley Mead Dec 19, 2016

Think Christmas TV has always been warm and fluffy? Think again, as we revisit some disturbing vintage festive specials...

The festive season holds long-held ties to the macabre. From the classic novels of Charles Dickens to the melancholy of the Christmas carol canon, Christmas has always harboured a darker side, lurking beyond the tinsel and mince pies. That role has extended to festive television: for every smiles-and-silliness sitcom special, there’s a programme with an altogether more disturbing spin on the season – be that a dramatic Christmas episode imbued with fear and bloodshed, or a family classic whose ostensibly wholesome charms look questionable in retrospect.

White Christmas Screens This Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

“I wanna wash my hands, my face, my hair with snow!”

The spirit of Christmas is alive and well at The Hi-Pointe Theater here in St. Louis. It”S A Wonderful Life played last weekend to a nearly-sold out crowd – and that’s a big theater!

This Saturday, December 17th at 10:30am, head over to the Hi-Pointe for a White Christmas

White Christmas was made in 1954 (exactly 20 years before Black Christmas!) and was directed by Michael Curtiz. Bing Crosby teamed up with madcap funny man Danny Kaye and partnering with those two show biz pros as sisters were Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. One of the most popular films of 1954, White Christmas opens and closes with the title song, while in between it’s filled with one great musical number after another. Crosby and Kaye play entertainers who went through W.W.II together and decide to host a fundraising

Black Mirror: the unexpected prescience of its least-loved episode

Brogan Morris Jan 20, 2017

Political satire The Waldo Moment from Black Mirror's second series deserves re-evaluation in light of real-world current events...

If you’re looking to inspire debate among fans of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker’s despairing Twilight Zone for the technological age, start with the simplest question of all: ask which of the show’s 13 episodes to date are ‘the best’. Everyone has their set of favourites. Episodes range from 44 minutes to 89, take place in past, present and future, and differ wildly in tone, style and ideas. Like a tainted chocolate box, Black Mirror presents different flavours for different pop culture palettes.

It’S A Wonderful Life Saturday Morning December 10th at The Hi-Pointe

It’S A Wonderful Life plays on the big screen at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s Saturday, December 10th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. Admission is only $5. Other Christmas films in December are White Christmas at 10:30am 12/17 and Die Hard at midnight 12/23.

“Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?”

It wasn’t until the 1980s when It’S A Wonderful Life became the perennial holiday favorite it’s known as today. The ultimate feel-good classic from director Frank Capra was a box-office disappointment when it was initially released in 1946. Due to a clerical error in 1974, the film went into public domain and was then shown on every low-rent local access channel in varying degrees of
