BLACK MIRROR's "USS Callister" Trailer Gives Us an Uneasy STAR TREK Adventure

BLACK MIRROR's

The fourth season of Netflix's dark Emmy-winning sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror includes a Star Trek homage titled "USS Callister" and today Netflix released a trailer for the episode.

"USS Callister" is directed by Doctor Who and Sherlock alum Toby Haynes and co-written by William Bridges.

"USS Callister" will be the fourth episode in the six episode season and will be 74-minutes long. Netflix released key art for episode yesterday.

Thanks to the bleak dystopias laid out in the Black Mirror series, we can always take solace in knowing that as messed up as our world is, things could be worse. It stars Andrea Riseborough, Andrew Gower, and Kiran Sonia Sawar.

- "Black Museum", directed by Colm McCarthy (The Girl with All the Gifts) and starring Douglas Hodge (The Night Manager, Catastrophe), Letitia Wright (Humans, Ready Player One), Babs Olusanmokun (Roots, The Defenders). "We did the 1980s [in San Junipero] when we didn't think we could do that, so then we thought, 'Can we do space?'"

Black Mirror returns sometime in 2018.

"Metalhead" will be the first Black Mirror episode to be entirely black-and-white, a stylistic choice we'll assume makes more sense when we see it. This promises to be another mind-bending season of highly eerie episodes, with "U.S.S. Callister" being a particularly intriguing proposition. Jones describes the episode as the show's most lavish production to date, sharing that "there are obviously more unsettling, poignant and slightly more melancholic moments, but at the same time, it is a romp".

"U.S.S. Callister" (watch at the top of the page) looks to be a odd Star Trek parody which stars Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson and Michaela Coel.
