Those who see movies as a chance to escape from their everyday worries probably won't be pleased to hear that Michael Bay is making a pandemic thriller.

Songbird has just commenced filming in Los Angeles and stars the likes of KJ Apa, Sofia Carson, Demi Moore and Bradley Whitford.

Seemingly inspired by COVID-19, it takes place two years into the future as a lockdown is established in an attempt to contain a mutating virus.

Dee Molumby discussed this in The Last Word on Movies, as well as why Viola Davis now regrets her role in The Help.

She also reviewed Stage Mother and gave her Pick of the Week.
