Black Mirror made its long-awaited return on Friday (Dec. 28th) and it did not disappoint. From its tight script to the shocking plot twists, the beloved sci-fi thriller really came through with their choose-your-own-adventure experience. Not only that but Bandersnatch marks the first time that Netflix has blessed Black Mirror fans with a feature length film and it worked perfectly.

However, it isn't just the movie itself which fans have fallen in love with. Like all Black Mirror episodes, Bandersnatch boasts an incredible cast and people can't get over how good they all are. The film stars Fionn Whitehead (Dunkirk) and Asim Chaudhry (High & Dry). However, it's Will Poulter (The Maze Runner) that fans are officially obsessed with.
