The exciting first trailer for Edgar Wright’s new movie “Last Night in Soho” dropped today and it didn’t disappoint. This psychological horror film is built around a wonderfully twisted premise and the first images we get are eerie, moody, and soaked in tension. And while the wonderful Anya Taylor-Joy gets top billing, the most exciting for me is seeing Thomasin McKenzie handed such a meaty role. Talk about a great young actress on the rise.
Set in London and with a time travel element, “Last Night in Soho” centers around an aspiring fashion designer named Eloise (McKenzie) who is mysteriously transported to 1960’s London. There her identity seems interwoven with that of her idol, a vivacious wanna-be singer named Sandy (Taylor-Joy). But as the trailer shows all is not what it seems. Wright and Focus Features are still keeping a lot under wraps, but what they show us looks great and definitely piques my curiosity.
“Last Night in Soho” hits theaters October 22nd. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
