‘Last Night in Soho’: Watch the teaser for director Edgar Wright’s new film
Are you ready to see what will happen when you take a wild trip through time courtesy of director Edgar Wright? The first teaser for the long-awaited Last Night in Soho is here and, oh boy, we have some serious questions about what is going on. Like, seriously, we have all of the questions. All of them, but are any of them being answered? No, well, not until the film is released anyway.
What did we learn about Last Night in Soho from the trailer? Well besides the fact that Petula Clark’s “Downtown” can be actually terrifying when given the right sort of context? It definitely looks like Edgar Wright is bringing some big scares in the movie. Here’s everything that you need to know about Last Night in Soho.
What we learned from the Last Night in Soho trailer
Thomasin McKenzie is Eloise, a young fashion student who moves to London. Unfortunately, she finds herself lonely & out of place amongst the hustle & bustle of the big city. Or, maybe, she’s one of those girls who felt like she was born in the wrong time. You all know the type. They tend to like the aesthetic of an era without really considering the social implications of it.
Anyway, Eloise, apparently, can mentally time travel to 1960s London where she takes over the body of a young singer named Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy). As the trailer progresses, the lines between the past & present begin to blur. More chillingly, it looks like the two young women may become one singular person as well. Which, honestly, can’t be good for anyone’s mental health.
Also there’s something about ghosts? Why not. Sure.
Who else can we expect in Last Night in Soho?
In addition to McKenzie & Taylor-Joy, the cast of Last Night in Soho also includes Matt Smith, Terence Stamp, the late & great Diana Rigg, the equally late & great Margaret Nolan, Rita Tushingham, Michael Ajao, and Synnøve Karlsen. Wright co-wrote the script with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917). It definitely looks like it’s going to be a great film with a lot of talent in it.
Filming for Last Night in Soho took place back in 2019 with a 2020 release date. Due to COVID-19, however, the release was delayed until April 2021. Obviously, that didn’t happen. Currently, we’re seeing an Oct. 2021 release date for the film in some places, but others are saying that there isn’t a release date for Last Night in Soho at this time. So who really knows when the film will be released? We don’t.
Either way, the 60s vibes and the horror vibes are definitely great to get us out of that COVID rut. It looks like a bad acid trip if we’re being honest. Or, well, a bad acid trip if stylishly directed by Edgar Wright, of course. We’re still excited, of course. We need something weird & new to cling onto as we crawl out from our quarantine holes after a year of COVID.
This is pretty much all we know about Last Night in Soho. Based on the trailer? We’re definitely excited about it. Edgar Wright is always a director that delivers big, big payoff in the best ways possible for audiences. It’s going to be fun to see where the film is going from the trailer. Rumors are that there may be more content from Last Night in Soho later in the week. So we’ll keep an eye out.
