Black Mirror Season 5: Smartphones
The trailer begins with Andrew Scott looking frightened of the smartphones buzzing all around him. He then begins to freak out and as he couldn’t take the phones near him anymore. Moreover, he then has a psychopathic breakdown and soon pulls out a gun. We don’t know the reason why, but the police start following him.
When asked to surrender, Scott shoots in the air while young kids who were recording him, get startled. Later in the video, Andrew abducts a man in a car yelling that everybody today is hooked up with technology. This entire story targets stating technology as the super-villain of the future. Set in Britain, this particular episode will be a great shot in enlightening the side-effects of the increasing use of mobiles.
Black Mirror Season 5: The Future Of Dating Apps
From the trailer, the second story begins on a sunny American day. Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Anthony Mackie are scrolling through the pictures of a girl on a dating app. The two try to hide it when Mackie’s wife (or girlfriend) enters the room. The couple is then seen having problems in the relationship. Soon after, we see him opting for some kind of dating gadget that enables him to get intimate with another girl. Mackie’s infidelity here, results in something far more dark that the couple could’ve ever imagined.
Black Mirror Season 5: Miley Cyrus And The AI Doll
Miley Cyrus was already in speculations about joining the cast of Black Mirror Season 5. Luckily, the news turns out to be true and here she is, playing a very complex character in one of the episodes. As far as the trailer hints, she is about to play a pop star with 20 thousand fans out there. As she gets on stage, we see her in a white outfit with a recognizable pink wig.
On the other hand, there’s this new character, who seemingly has no friends and totally depends upon her AI gadget. The gadget is in the form of a doll, also wearing a white outfit with recognizable pink hair. In one of the scenes, a woman even says that the gadget isn’t just a doll, but poison. But the girl seems to be very affected by it.
This story probably targets the harmful over-use of the AI-technology in future. Moreover, Miley Cyrus will likely be the one introducing the doll to the world. This gadget will have some serious effects on the human mind and Brooker will elaborate on the idea.
