First look at the upcoming music drama.


Director Darius Marder's Sound of Metal, which he co-wrote with his brother Abraham, stars Riz Ahmed as a heroin addicted Heavy Metal drummer slowly losing his sense of hearing. With the help of his bandmate and girlfriend (Olivia Cooke), he begins to adapt to a new way of life. Marder implements sign language and innovative sound design to tell this story. The film also stars Paul Raci, Lauren Ridloff, Shaheem Sanchez, Chelsea Lee, Jeremy Stone and Mathieu Amalric.

Sound of Metal is in US cinemas from November 20th and on Amazon Prime Video from December 4th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.


The official synopsis reads:

During a series of adrenaline-fueled one-night gigs, itinerant punk-metal drummer Ruben (Riz 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.
