The teaser trailer for Edgar Wright's highly anticipated new psychological-horror film Last Night In Soho is finally here, and Anya Taylor-Joy rightfully takes centre stage in the 16-second clip.
With a full length trailer set to hit screens tomorrow, May 25, the film follows a young girl who aspires to be a fashion designer (played by Thomasin Harcourt Mackenzie) and finds she is mysteriously able to transport herself to the 1960s, where she encounters her idol - Taylor-Joy's character - a 60s fashion icon and ambitious singer.
Taylor-Joy and Harcourt Mackenzie will play alongside Matt Smith, Jessie Mei Li and Dame Diana Rigg and Margaret Nolan, both of the latter who sadly gave their final performances in the horror film before they passed away last year.
After an arduous amount of COVID-19 setbacks, the film will release on October 22, 2021. In the eerie teaser, we see Harcourt Mackenzie's character lie down in bed, only to be transported to the lens of Taylor-Joy's world, where she is depicted with a 60s beehive, dancing in glamour-clad clothing against flashing, coloured lights.
For director Edgar Wright, this will be his seventh feature film, and his first working with Taylor-Joy, whose breakout role in Netflix's The Queens Gambit has seen the actress rise to popularity in the past year. Alongside her role in Last Night In Soho, Taylor-Joy will be return to the screen with horror king Robert Eggers for his upcoming film, The Northman, where Taylor-Joy will play alongside Nicole Kidman, Willem DaFoe, Alexander Skarsgård and Björk in the viking revenge film. Set in Iceland at the turn of the 10th century, Skarsgård will play the film’s lead protagonist - a Viking prince by the name of Amleth who is on a mission to avenge his father’s death.
