As the world slowly begins to reopen amid declining COVID-19 rates, one of the biggest things we have to look forward to is finally seeing all the movies we've been waiting for since 2019. Aside from obvious big-hitters like In The Heights, Black Widow and West Side Story, one of the most anticipated films delayed by the pandemic was Edgar Wright's One Night In Soho.
This London-set psychological thriller sounds like a real departure from the writer-director's previous comedic and action-focused work, as becomes clear when you watch the unsettling first trailer (above) that was just released.
The plot of the film is still relatively mysterious, but we do know that it follows an up-and-coming fashion designer, Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie) who discovers that she's able to time travel. Specifically, she's able to travel all the way back to the 1960s—to swap bodies with her idol, an iconic singer played by The Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy, and to fall in love with a singer played by Matt Smith. But the past isn't exactly what it appears, and Eloise soon finds herself in horrifyingly over her head.
Although Wright has historically been best known for comedy—particularly his Cornetto movie trilogy, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End—he's recently moved into more dramatic work, including the 2017 action film Baby Driver. He co-wrote the Last Night in Soho script with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who was a co-writer on the Oscar-nominated film 1917, and also wrote for Showtime's Penny Dreadful.
