“Relax, don’t do it,” sings Frankie Goes to Hollywood in a new trailer for the Netflix movie event “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.” But when it comes to the creepy sci-fi series, we can’t help but tune in.

And fans will be able to just that on Friday as the streaming service announced it is releasing the much-anticipated 5+ hour film.

The description on the trailer reads like so: “In 1984, a young programmer begins to question reality as he adapts a sprawling fantasy novel into a video game and soon faces a mind-mangling challenge. Welcome back.”

The film stars Fionn Whitehead (“Dunkirk”) as the lead character and is reportedly a choose-your-own-adventure style movie.

The critically acclaimed “Black Mirror” is known for its dark take on technology in the modern world or near future. Netflix renewed the series for a fifth season this year.
