Late Shift at Golden Village Singapore


When Black Mirror released its Netflix special Bandersnatch in 2018, viewers were sucked into its choose-your-own-adventure format that seemed ahead of its time for the platform. We’ve since seen many an interactive series, but Golden Village is taking things to a whole new level with its very first interactive movie, Late Shift.

Here’s what you need to know about the movie that’s coming out on 22nd April 2021.


Pick outcomes via mobile phones


Sure, we’d like to think we know what’s about to happen whenever we watch a movie, but we’re mostly just in for the ride. Late Shift, however, let’s us play Spielberg by allowing viewers to choose multiple outcomes throughout the movie. How many, you ask? A whopping 180 choices are up to the audience, so get ready.

Late Shift follows protagonist Matt Thompson, a regular college student who one night finds himself in the middle of London’s brutal criminal underworld. He gets involved with a group of robbers, and viewers must decide the path Matt goes on, which affects the events that unfold.

The thriller has seven different endings to look out for – of course, everyone will be watching the same version of the movie at once, so only the majority of votes will be accounted for.
