Join Radio 1’s resident film buff Ali Plumb for movie news, reviews and extra behind-the-screens fun.
Ali’s Film Club: The Mask
On this week's Friday episode of Radio 1's Screen Time, Ali tackles the news on his todd, touching on Jared Leto's potential reappearance as The Joker in the new Justice League... thing, as well as Disney's trailer for their new movie Raya And The Last Dragon. After the headlines, we have BBC Radio 1's very own Matt Edmondson for 'Ali Plumb's Film Club' where - shock twist! - we talk about Jim Carrey classic The Mask and not (as previously advertised) Being John Malkovich. Ali couldn't handle the existential angst, it turns out. Now we know.
Lily James & Armie Hammer Interview Special: Rebecca
Daphne du Maurier's classic novel Rebecca has been adapted once again
by Ben Wheatley, and in honour of its release on Netflix (and select
cinemas) on October 21st, Ali spoke to its charming stars, Lily James
and Armie Hammer, about tackling a story that previously won the Best
Picture Oscar for one - checks notes - "Alfred Hitchcock". Never heard
of him either.
A Quick Message
There will be a slight delay for this week's interview podcast. Here's Ali to explain.
Ali’s Film Club: '71
Ali Plumb's Film Club continues apace with '71, the tense thriller
from Yann Demange that Ali's been banging on about for seemingly ages
now. Newsbeat's very own Steffan Powell pops by to chat about the
latest movie and TV news (as well as '71, of course), with everything
from Coming 2 America to His Dark Materials up for discussion.
Riz Ahmed Interview Special: Mogul Mowgli
Riz Ahmed is one of those brilliantly gifted writer-actors that is
always worth watching. His latest, the heartfelt and close to home
Mogul Mowgli is currently screening at the BFI London Film Festival
before hitting cinema screens nationwide on October 30th. Here he
talks to Ali about the parallels between himself and his
Pakistani-British rapper Zed in the film, touching on the legacy of
Four Lions and a whole load more.
Ali’s Film Club: I, Tonya
Ali Plumb's Film Club is back! I, Tonya is being discussed at length
this week, with Radio 1's very own Clara Amfo coming along for the
ride. As if that weren't enough, there's a generously-sized movie news
section - lots and lots to talk about and no mistake - plus an
interview with the amazingly talented Morfydd Clark, the star of the
now-actually-in-actual-cinemas body horror Saint Maud.
