“It’ll be much easier if you just comply,” says Jon Hamm in a chilling trailer for Black Mirror’s festive special.
The Mad Men star takes centre-stage in a 40-second teaser for Charlie Brooker’s latest offering in the Black Mirror series: White Christmas. He plays Matt, a charismatic American caught up in all sorts of strange and scary smart technology.
“In a mysterious and remote snowy outpost, Matt (Jon Hamm) and Potter (Rafe Spall), share a Christmas meal together and swap creepy tales of their earlier lives in the outside world,” reads Channel 4’s episode description.
“Matt is a charismatic American trying to bring the reserved, secretive Potter out of his shell. Are both men who they appear to be? Along the way we see Jon Hamm offering an unusual form of romantic guidance to an inexperienced young man, watch Oona Chaplin thrust headlong into a nightmarish world of ‘smart’ gadgetry, and explore what might happen if you could ‘block’ people in real life, just as you can on Facebook or Twitter.”
Don’t expect to feel warm, cosy or uplifted after watching this unsettling Yuletide treat…
Black Mirror returns on 16th December at 9:00pm on Channel 4
