We all remember Bandersnatch — the first film of its kind available on the Netflix platform. You found yourself sucked into the world of Black Mirror, able to participate not only as a viewer, but almost as a character yourself in the "choose your own adventure" style that never gets old.
Ever since its release, we've all wondered when, and if, Netflix had any plans to come out with any more interactive films. Well, whether you enjoyed Bandersnatch or not, you can definitely prepare for more of its genre on the streaming service. Earlier this week, it was announced by Netflix Vice President of Product Todd Yellin that the experimental format is going to become more common on the streaming service from here on out.
TL;DR Netflix Vice President of Product Todd Yellin announced this week that more interactive films, similar to the 'Bandersnatch' format, will soon be making their way to the streaming service. No release date for the next film or series has been set yet. More details below.
Yes, that means those creepy, weird, thrilling and exciting interactive films you've been desperate for are guaranteed to arrive. Netflix decided to go forward with the choose-your-own-story-films after the global madness over Bandersnatch.
Obviously, people want to see more of that kind of content. Luckily, Netflix is all for delivering what the people want.
The new interactive films and series could include romance, comedies, and of course, science fiction and dark thrillers.
Although there isn't a set release date just yet for the next generation of interactive films on Netflix, we can already guarantee that they will bring on a totally new era of streaming and movie-watching.
Stay tuned for more information and any updates announced by Netflix.
The custom airstream company in Montreal said Madonna's 1975 Airstream Sovereign 31' vehicle was designed in the likeness of a five-star hotel, featuring a custom leather couch and matching armchairs, retractable 50-inch TV monitors, a minibar and ice bin, heated floors, a tufted wall with custom light fixtures, a top-of-the-line sound system and custom under-carriage lights.
The RV even converts into a cigar lounge, built with a custom humidor and commercial air purifiers.
The price tag? A cool $200,000 USD. And Custom Airstream said other custom builds could cost up to $500,000 USD.
It's not the first time the Montreal-based camper customization company has worked with Madge. It also partnered with her on a "personal project" she hosted in the Hamptons in 2014.
"We're beyond excited to be part of Madonna's fun family moment," said a statement by David Schirmer, vice-president of sales and marketing at Custom Airstream.
"We woke up to a flood of phone calls, email and social media messages. People have been knocking down our door – it's been overwhelming in the best way possible. It's such an honour for our humble Québec company to add a little magic to Madonna's American Life!"
"Club Med Québec Charlevoix offers a one-of-a-kind vantage point at the heart of the Charlevoix region: built between the [Saint-Lawrence] river and the mountains, this Resort will offer you an incredible view of the mountain," according to the website, which calls this "the first Club Med mountain resort with waterfront views." There are other Club Med mountain resorts in the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps as well as China and Japan.
The Québec Charlevoix resort has 302 rooms and a private five-star luxury space with 25 suites. Select rooms "channel" the colours of Quebec, according to the website, "with winter white, twilight blue, and yellow sun decor." There are also three restaurants and, of course, one of them features ski chalet favourites, such as fondue and raclette.
Guest get unlimited meals and beverages, and daily entertainment, as well as unlimited ski-in/ski-out access, lift tickets, and group ski and snowboard lessons included in the all-inclusive package. For additional costs, guests can also try out Quebec activities like ice-skating, dog sledding, and sugar shack visits during the winter or biking, hiking and whale watching during warmer months.
