From Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End) comes an exciting new thriller starring Doctor Who’s own Matt Smith, and Split (2016) actress Anya Taylor-Joy.

Wright is known for directing hilarious films such as Hot Fuzz (2007), and focused, clever, and exciting movies like (2017); now it seems that the beloved director is tackling something totally new.

Last Night in Soho is set to follow Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie), an aspiring fashion designer who is, somehow, able to enter the 1960s, where she encounters a stunning wannabe singer called Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy).

The glitz and glamour may not shine for long, as the dreams of the past appear to crack and splinter into something much, much darker.

The film stars Smith as Jack, a gentlemanly-looking character who seems to be holding Sandie’s gaze. Smith played the iconic role of The Doctor in BBC’s popular show Doctor Who from 2010 to 2013; fans adored Smith’s tough yet childish Doctor, so his role in this movie would appear to be perfect for him.

Taylor-Joy has had a decent career so far, and is making waves with her performances. Her role in Split as a kidnapped teenager was sensational; seeing her in Last Night in Soho, another thriller, will definitely showcase her talents.

The trailer gives out a dark, curious atmosphere, as it appears that Eloise witnessed a murder from the 60s, and wants to catch the man responsible.

Smith’s character poses a genuine threat in this trailer, as his anger and persistence begins to grate on both Sandie and Eloise, as it is looking like no one can be saved...

Last Night in Soho’s trailer gives a brief indication of the plot, however, it boasts a stellar cast, stunning visuals, a clever and acclaimed director, and a narrative to draw you in from the very beginning; it may be a must-watch feature.

From a student who adores fashion and the London lifestyle, to someone who sees things in their dreams, significant events that almost appear to bleed into the present day, creating the perfect mind-bending plot to confuse and delight audiences.

Wright will no doubt deliver a stunning feature, as the main cast appear to have nailed their roles, and with Smith seemingly playing the villain, there will be many surprises to come.

The cast also includes Terence Stamp, Diana Rigg, Rita Tushingham, with Michael Ajao and Synnøve Karlsen.

Last Night in Soho will arrive in cinemas on October 29th, 2021.
