Riz Ahmed is a Drummer Battling Hearing Loss in 'Sound of Metal' Trailer - Watch!

The trailer for Riz Ahmed‘s new movie has been released.

The 37-year-old actor plays a rocker battling hearing loss in the new movie Sound of Metal, directed by Darius Marder.

Here’s the official synopsis released by Amazon: “During a series of adrenaline-fueled one-night gigs, itinerant punk-metal drummer Ruben (Ahmed) begins to experience intermittent hearing loss. When a specialist tells him his condition will rapidly worsen, he thinks his music career — and with it his life — is over. His bandmate and girlfriend Lou (Olivia Cooke) checks the recovering heroin addict into a secluded sober house for the deaf in hopes it will prevent a relapse and help him learn to adapt to his new situation. But after being welcomed into a community that accepts him just as he is, Ruben has to choose between his equilibrium and the drive to reclaim the life he once knew.”

The cast also includes Paul Raci, Lauren Ridloff, Shaheem Sanchez, Chelsea Lee, Jeremy Lee Stone, and Mathieu Amalric.

Riz Ahmed Lost 2 Family Members to Coronavirus

Riz Ahmed, who has starred in HBO’s The Night Of and the recent movie Venom, has revealed that two of his family members have passed away from COVID-19 aka the Coronavirus.

“I have lost two family members to COVID. I just want to believe their deaths and all the others aren’t for nothing. We gotta step up to reimagine a better future,” he told GQ Hype. He did not specify which family members have passed away.

Trump is using it as an excuse to try to ban immigration and the Hungarian government is centralizing power off the back of this,” he said. “I’m seeing reports of India, where the government are calling it “corona-jihad” and they’re trying to blame it on the spread of Muslims and they are segregating hospitals between Muslims and non-Muslims.”

Our thoughts are with Riz‘s entire family during this time.

Riz Ahmed Talks Diverse Filmmaking at Berlin Film Fest: 'The Time For Asking Permission To Tell Our Stories Is Over'

Riz Ahmed keeps it cute in a colorful sweatshirt while attending the photo call for his latest film Mogul Mowgli held during the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on (February 21) in Berlin, Germany.

The 37-yeare-old actor was joined at the event by his co-stars Aiysha Hart, Nabhaan Rizwan, Alyy Khan, Sudha Bhuchar and Hussain Manawer, as well as producers Thomas Benski, Bennett McGhee and Michael Peay, and director Bassam Tariq.

Alongside starring, Riz serves as a producer through his company Left Handed Films and came up with the idea with director Bassam, the pair co-wrote the screenplay together.

Riz plays Zed, a rapper on the cusp of fame who is suddenly struck down by a debilitating illness on the eve of his breakthrough tour, according to Deadline. “Haunted by religious iconography, he tries to come to terms with his heritage and his future.”

“Often, people are making films thinking about finding audiences. But sometimes the strongest, most uncompromising stories are told without any of that in mind,” Riz Ahmed expressed at the Berlin Film Festival. “They’re told because you have an artist at the center of it who has to tell the story, has to get something off their chest, that’s how this felt. At a moment when there is so much attention being put on artists and creators of color, how many portraits of these artists have we really had?”

“I feel like the time for asking people’s permission to tell our stories is over, it’s about stepping up and saying, as storytellers who are women or people of colour, ‘we have to do this ourselves’,” Riz continued. “We see the talent out there, we see the demand out there, it’s about creating a bridge.”
