Published: Tuesday 7th Dec 2021 by Sam

Riz Ahmed takes the lead in Amazon Studios‘ hotly-anticipated Sc-Fi thriller ‘Encounter.’

Set to storm onto Amazon’s Prime Video platform on December 10, the film sees the revered actor star as Malik – a  decorated Marine.

Directed by Michael Pearce and co-starring Octavia Spencer, the action-packed title chronicles his mission to rescue his young sons (played by Lucian-River Chauhan and Aditya Geddad) from an inhuman threat.

With the path to safety marred by a myriad of twists and turns, the youngsters quickly learn that life as they know it may never be the same.

That Grape Juice‘s Patrick Buchanan sat down with the cast, who dished on the film in earnest. Ahmed, who is renowned for being vocal about representation and equality, also shared what he’d like to see more of in Hollywood moving forward.
