Riz Ahmed has been getting positive buzz for his performance in Sound Of Metal, and rightfully so—he’s the glue that keeps the film together, as we wrote in our review earlier this week. In a tale that’s become depressingly common in 2020, the film’s been pushed back several times since its debut at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, and it’s now set to premiere on Amazon Prime on December 4. But (virtual) sneak previews of the film are finally being planned, so if you’ve been dying to slip on your ancient Rudimentary Peni T-shirt and rock out, then you’re in luck.
We’ve got 50 RSVP slots for an advance online screening of Sound Of Metal on Wednesday, December 2 at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT, and to register for your slot, simply follow this link, create an account if you don’t already have one, and click the “RSVP” button. Sound Of Metal has been closed-captioned to accommodate non-hearing viewers, so if accessibility is an issue for you, this is a good film to check out—just register quickly, as spots are limited.
Virtual screenings work a little differently from in-person ones, obviously, so we’ve got some fine print laying out how it works underneath the trailer below.
