Black Mirror Explores Memory In Crocodile Trailer

Black Mirror is delving into the mystery that is memory in a new trailer for the season four episode "Crocodile." The episode will be the first in the upcoming season; it was written by the show's creator Charlie Booker and directed by The Road's John Hillcoat.

"Memories can be subjective," says Kiran Sonia Sawar's character at the start of the trailer. "They may not be totally accurate, and they're often emotional." She is later shown talking with a man (Andrew Gower) about what he saw in an accident in which a vehicle hit a pedestrian. "I didn't see the actual crash," he says.

Sawar's character later pulls out a mysterious machine which is designed to help access memories of what happened. Since this is Black Mirror, the machine likely has some creepy ramifications on society, something teased by Sawar's ending line: "I don't care what you do in your own time. Private stuff is private stuff." 

This is the second trailer we've gotten for Black Mirror season four, after an eerie look at the Jodie Foster-directed "Arkangel," starring Rosemarie Dewitt, Brenna Harding, and Owen Teague. The upcoming episodes also include "USS Calister," starring Jesse Plemons, Cristin Milioti, and Jimmi Simpson; "Hang the DJ," starring Georgina Campbell, Joe Cole, and George Blagden; "Metalhead," starring Maxine Peake, Jake Davies, and Clint Dyer; and "Black Museum," starring Douglas Hodge, Letitia Wright, and Babs Olusanmokun.

Andrea Riseborough also stars in "Crocodile." The fourth season of Black Mirror does not have a premiere date yet.
