Wow. Just wow. The trailer for Edgar Wright’s next movie, Last Night in Soho, has just dropped and it’s frickin fantastic. It’s a time-travel horror about a young girl, passionate about fashion design, who is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences…
The film features Anya Taylor-Joy, Jessie Mei Li, and Matt Smith, among others, plus the late, great, Diana Rigg.
Judging by the trailer, it’s going to be a stylish, scary, and glamorous trip into the heart of London nightlife, with more than a hint of Giallo.
Last Night in Soho is set to hit UK cinemas on 29th October 2021 – just in time for Halloween. As someone who has always admired Wright as a comedian, and has enjoyed his co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns’ work on Penny Dreadful, and sort of 1917, I can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with.
