'Black Mirror' Trailer Shows Several Horrific Scenes in 'Black Museum' Episode
Netflix
Over the past week, Netflix has gradually been releasing teasers for each new episode of Black Mirror's upcoming fourth season. With the teasers for "Arkangel" and "Crocodile" completed, which respectively explored helicopter parenting and memory-reading, Netflix just posted the third creepy look at Season 4's third creepy tale.

With both a short trailer and a poster to pick apart, the episode "Black Museum" looks especially unusual for an episode of the sci-fi horror anthology: a young woman (played by Black Panther's Letitia Wright) takes a visit to Rolo Haynes' Black Museum, a collection of morbid objects and technologies which were each involved in something terrible. 

Based on the trailer, it seems like the museum will be a framing device for a series of short tales based on its many exhibits. Check out the trailer below:



If that's actually the case, and "Black Museum" is a collection of stories based around the museum's creepy knick-knacks (expect each story to begin with the tourist pointing at an object and asking "what's this?"), then it'd be the odd scenario of an anthology episode inside an anthology show. Which could definitely be cool - the show already did something similar with their deceptively festive and actually quite grim Christmas special

As for what these objects are, the teaser remains vague as always. There's some sort of helmet with a bunch of neural-looking devices, a stuffed monkey, and a throwback to the episode "White Bear." There's also several graphic snippets of murders and medical surgeries gone wrong that don't seem to connect to any object we've seen yet, so those mysteries will be solved once the episode airs.



With three teasers out now, only three remain, according to the episode list released earlier this year. The remaining episodes are called "Hang the DJ" (a line from the song "Panic" by The Smiths) alongside "Metalhead" and "USS Callister," the last of which appears to be a Star Trek satire. Once those come out, Netflix might finally give us a release date for Season 4, since we only know that the new season is "coming soon" as of now. 

Black Mirror is expected to come out early 2018, barring any surprise announcements from Netflix - the new season didn't appear in their list of new additions for December 2017, so for now we're assuming it won't come out this year.
