Something is happening, here is a Last Night in Soho Teaser Trailer. The film’s been caught up with the global problem. We even had an April 2021 release given us but that came and went. Now as things start to look more promising we have some release dates which look like they might be credible. Plus, as this 15 second teaser tells, we have a full trailer expected for Tuesday May 25th, 2021!

Dame Diana Rigg

UK’s beloved Dame Diana Rigg made this film before her death in September 2020. So this film has Diana Rigg’s last  acting appearance, maybe we will get a glance of her in the trailer?

Last Night in Soho lowdown

This is Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller about a young girl who is passionate in fashion design. She is also mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer!

But 1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences. (Ed: Is this why Timelord Matt Smith is on hand?)

Edgar Wright directed the London-set psychological thriller.
