The Universe Glitches Out in This Trailer for The Mandela Effect (2019)

It’s been a few years now since the Berenst#in Bears Problem and the Mandela Effect broke the Internet. I guess that means it’s about time we got a movie about it.

In the trailer for the indie scifi thriller The Mandela Effect, directed by David Guy Levy, one man watches the universe fall apart before his eyes after the death of his daughter:

“A man becomes obsessed with facts and events that have been collectively misremembered by thousands of people. Believing the phenomena to be the symptom of something larger, his obsession eventually leads him to question reality itself.”

The movie appears to be taking a ‘Glitch in the Matrix’ approach to the Mandela Effect, rather than the good old standby, ‘time travelers meddling with the worldline.’ But who’s to say? It does mention parallel universes, after all.

Whichever route it decides to go with, the film’s trailer manages to hit some major Mandela Effect beats.

The Berenstein Bears spelling issue, the Monopoly Man’s missing monocle, Curious George (he doesn’t have a tail?!). The incorrect memories à la John Titor’s Alter vus. All this time later and it’s still a compelling phenomenon.

You can check out more over at The Mandela Effect‘s official Facebook page, and the movie itself will release on December 6, 2019 in theaters and on VOD.
