‘Last Night in Soho’ Trailer
On October 11th, Universal Pictures released Last Night in Soho’s final trailer before its release date. They captioned the video: “Are you ready for a trip into the past? From the imagination of Edgar Wright, prepare for the “dark and delicious” #LastNightInSoho in cinemas October 29.”
From the looks of its fast-paced calamity bathed in neon lights, it promises to be another cinematic spectacle that encapsulates the key elements of any self-respecting psychological horror movie. Following in the footsteps of Edgar Wright’s other renowned successes, such as Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), and Baby Driver (2017), it has some big shoes to fill. It also comes as a massive surprise that Wright never suggested casting Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as the starring duo.
