Discuss Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

The total content on Bandersnatch is officially 5 hours 12 minutes. This can be verified by multiple publications. But TMDB has 1 hr 30 mins as the runtime. There are storylines in the film that last from 40 mins to 2 hours.

As someone who has gone through all the endings, I think the time reflected should be that collectively of all the content, which is 5 hour 12 minutes instead of the 1 hour 30 mins as that really makes no sense. Almost everyone I know or am seeing on social media is definitely watching way more than that due to multiple endings and reversals.

90 mins is the official runtimes used by Netflix: https://www.netflix.com/title/80988062

I'm not aware of any guidelines for this type of content. I personally think an approxime runtime makes more sense that a comprehensive runtime (I'm assuming only a very small % of watchers sit though 5 hours and 12 minutes of content). :thinking:

No, I dont know if you have seen it. But the content is made in such a such a way that a person after finishing one storyline can immediately jump to another at the end, which is why I suggested that. More or less everyone I have come across on social media posts (Twitter, not a personal Facebook friend circle) has done this. I guess there should be some guidelines? Now that there is some content of this kind.

I'm not aware of any guidelines for this type of content.

I assume this entry is an exception to our rules in general. Which means there are no exact rules regarding interactive games.
