Riz Ahmed seemed to be freaking everywhere in 2016, from The Night Of to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be slowing down any in 2017. He’s got a guest spot on Girls and a supporting role in Una, and he’ll be getting a lead role all to himself in City of Tiny Lights.
Ahmed stars as a down-on-his-luck private eye (is there any other kind in movies?) who gets caught up in a missing-persons case that dredges up some ghosts from his past. Billie Piper stars an ex-girlfriend with whom he has some complicated history. Pete Travis (Dredd) directed. Watch the City of Tiny Lights trailer below. Read More »

The Night Of may be over and done, but the year of Riz Ahmed continues. Following his supporting role in Jason Bourne and ahead of his blockbuster turn in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the British actor has not one but two films premiering next month at TIFF. Today we’ve got an intriguing look at one of them, City of Tiny Lights from Dredd director Pete Travis.
The neo-noir thriller puts Ahmed back into the criminal justice system, this time from the other end. His Tommy is a private eye investigating a missing persons case in London. As he digs deeper into the mystery, however, he finds himself facing dark secrets from his past. The first City of Lights clip has Tommy visiting a certain key figure from his history, an ex-girlfriend played by Billie Piper. Watch the City of Tiny Lights clip below. Read More »
