Edgar Wright’s ‘Last Night in Soho’ — watch the creepy full trailer
After sharing a very short teaser yesterday, filmmaker Edgar Wright has shared the full trailer for his new feature, Last Night in Soho. This is a departure for Wright, whose previous films include the three great comedies with Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End), the fantastic adaptation of Scott Pilgrim, and 2017's music-filled crime film Baby Driver. It's a psychological thriller starring Thomasin McKenzie as a fashion student who is mysteriously sent back in time to 1965 London and encounters -- or perhaps inhabits -- her idol, a "dazzling wannabe singer" played by The Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy. But as the official synopsis, reads, "1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences." Or as the official tagline says, "When the past lets you in, the truth will come out."
Set to an a capella version of Petula Clark's "Downtown," the trailer is more evocative than spoilery, painting a hallucinatory world that goes from dream to nightmare. Wright has cited both Nicholas Roeg's Don't Look Now and Polanski's Repulsion as influences here and you can definitely feel that. You can watch the trailer below.
Last Night in Soho also stars Matt Smith (Doctor Who, The Crown) and '60s icons Terence Stamp and Diana Rigg. It's out in theaters on October 22.
Meanwhile, Edgar Wright's Sparks documentary, The Sparks Brothers, is out in June.
