156: Movie News – March 2021

Listeners with long memories may remember back in the pre-COVID days, we used to provide an irreverent movie news column for our mid month show.

At the Flicks · 156: Movie News – March 2021

When film production essentially stopped, we decide to mothball news as, to be frank, there wasn’t any, other than movie postponements. It was just too depressing.

Now we are back and like the rest of your At The Flicks shows, bigger and bolder than ever. Each month we have set a target to get you the best movie news. Our aim is to try to get you an exclusive on a movie production, as well a humorous piece and something potentially prestigious.

This month, for our first stand alone movie news show, I am sure you will agree we have met all of those targets. Writer / director Max Van De Banks tells us about his new film Mudlark which starts production at the end of March. Max talks about the idea, the locations and the casting. In fact, all the info you need to convince you this is a must see short feature.

After Max, we let Graham loose to tell us all about what his favourite actor has been up to during lockdown. He certainly has been busy, and Graham gets very excited explaining that to you. Then Neil tells us what Rebel Wilson is about to start filming in the UK. I bet you are thinking zany comedy – you could not be more wrong! Neil reveals all he has found out about this worthy movie.

Lastly, Jeff sneaks on to tell us about a soundtrack he has been listening to on hard rotation since Christmas. It is a remarkable piece of work from a composer who is not as well known as he should be.

Here it is listeners, our new movie news format. What do you think? Please drop us a line to let us know your views. Your thoughts are, as always, very welcome.

Enjoy and stay safe.
