Join Radio 1’s resident film buff Ali Plumb for movie news, reviews and extra behind-the-screens fun.
Rebecca Ferguson Interview Special: Dune
Dune is finally in cinemas and that is a very, very, very big deal indeed. Here's the wonderful and ever-charming Rebecca Ferguson (Lady Jessica in the film) to talk all about it - more or less - with Ali, as you, dear listener, specifically requested. Oh, and as well as talking Dune, there's also some chat about getting on the tube with Tom Cruise, her favourite family games to play and much, much more.
Also! If you're keen on more Dune in your life, check out the Denis interview on BBC iPlayer.
Succession Interview Special
Succession series 3 - or should we say 'season 3', as it's a US show, even if it's written by a mainly British writing staff? Anyway... - is finally here in the UK on Sky / Now and Ali is very excited about that indeed. Here he is, geeking out about one of his favourite TV shows on air today with three of its stars: Sarak Snook, Brian Cox and Matthew Macfadyen. Warning - and this is a BIG WARNING - these conversations contain plenty of strong language, just like the show itself. Also, spoilers for series / seasons 1 and 2. Now you know!
Jamie Lee Curtis Interview Special: Halloween Kills
Halloween Kills is the twelfth installment in the Halloween franchise.
That's right, twelfth. It's only the sixth - we think - to include the legend that is Jamie Lee Curtis, and it's also the follow-up to 2018's Halloween, the box office winner that reset the timeline and ignored the previous sequels. On this particular interview special, you'll hear from the queen of scream queens as she explains just how unglamorous it is to shoot a low-budget horror and what she has/had planned for the Halloween Kills red carpet...
Tom Hardy Interview Special: Becoming...Venom
Venom: Let There Be Carnage is finally in UK cinemas - two weeks after it first dropped over in the US - so now feels like the perfect time to unveil our 'Becoming... Venom' interview with Tom Hardy. Ali and Tom dig deep on what makes the character(s) tick, touching on the voice, the look, the attitude, the everything. It also contains some terrible Venom impressions from Ali, for which he can only apologise.
No Time To Die Spoiler Special
With so, so, so, so many of your fine folk asking so, so, so, so nicely, Ali and Neil have got together once again to talk No Time To Die - only this time WITH SPOILERS. That's right: the No Time To Die Spoiler special is here, and it's earlier than anyone could have expected. So if you're looking for a safe space to hear fellow nerds really dig into what goes down in No Time To Die, you've come to the right place. Just make sure you've seen the film already. Seriously.
We're not kidding. At all.
Movie News and Squid Game Review
With No Time To Die pretty much the only big movie in town - sorry The Addams Family 2, you know it's true - Ali is joined by the always wonderful Lucy Ford to talk about some of the biggest and best TV shows we're all watching right now. Okay, fine: Squid Game. A lot of this podcast (the second half, more or less) is about Squid Game. No spoilers though, we're totally aware we're not all totally up to date here, but as well as your usual weekly dose of movie and TV news we will be coming to terms with the HUGE success of the straight-outta-leftfield Korean Battle Royale-style game show drama.
