FIRST LOOK at Edgar Wright’s new movie Last Night in Soho

January 10th, 2021 by Marc Comments

We finally have our first look at director Edgar Wright’s new movie, Last Night in Soho.

The Shaun of the Dead and Baby Driver director shared the image of star Anya Taylor Joy from the movie (above), saying: “The idea for the movie is the result of 25 years of living and working in Soho.

“I spent so much time looking at the architecture, thinking, ‘What have these walls seen?’ And walking the streets late at night. Soho’s become a lot more gentrified, but it still has that darkness just under the surface. It’s one of those places where you only need to stand still for 60 seconds for something strange or magical or weird or dark to happen.”

The plot of the movie, as per Wright’s wishes, is being kept pretty hush-hush, but the official synopsis says:  In 2019, Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie), a young woman from the country, arrives in London to pursue her passion for fashion design. Things don’t go great. Meanwhile, in 1965, singer Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy) similarly discovers that the big city’s supposedly gold-paved streets are riven with cracks that can swallow you whole.

I’m a massive fan of Wright and his movies, so finally getting to see this will be a highlight of 2021… let’s just hope it makes it to cinemas as planned on April 23rd.

What say you all? Any Wright fans here? Let me know your thoughts, gang…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
