Last Night in Soho comes from famed director Edgar Wright, in his first feature since 2017’s Baby Driver. The film is littered with stars from the big screen, including two who have sadly died since filming ended. Express.co.uk breaks down the ins and outs of Last Night in Soho.
When is Last Night in Soho out in cinemas?
Like so many other films, the release date for Last Night in Soho has been moved a few times.
The first release date was scheduled to be September 25, 2020, before it was delayed to April 23, 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, there were also additional filming requirements, which took place between June and August 2020.

This would have likely meant the September 2020 release date was ambitious, so its delay makes some sense.
However, given April 2021 was still too early for cinemas to be open, the film’s release date was moved yet again.
Now, UK film fans can finally enjoy the film from October 29, 2021, on the big screen, provided cinemas remain open until then.
There has been no news of simultaneous releasing or streaming being available for this film, but Express.co.uk will update if information comes to light.
Who is in the cast of Last Night in Soho?
The main star of Last Night in Soho is Thomasin McKenzie, best known for her role in Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit.
She plays what seems to be almost a dual role with Anya Taylor-Joy, who is her main co-star in the film.
As well as these two, supporting roles are played by Matt Smith, Terence Stamp, Rita Tushingham, Synnøve Karlsen and Michael Ajao.
Two other members of the cast, have sadly died between the film’s production and its release: Dame Diana Rigg and Margaret Nolan.
Margaret is best known for her work in Goldfinger, A Hard Day’s Night and the Carry On films, while Dame Diana was a hugely influential star of stage and screen.
Dame Diana’s most recently lauded role was as Olenna Tyrell in Game of Thrones, but she also appeared in The Avengers Tv series and as Countess Teresa di Vicenzo, wife of James Bond, in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Edgar Wright is the director and co-screenwriter on the film, having written it with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, whose work on war movie 1917 earned her an Oscar nomination.
What is Last Night in Soho about?
The official synopsis for Last Night in Soho reads: “Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller about a young girl, passionate in fashion design, who is 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…”
There is also a trailer for the film, which seems to suggest this is a hybrid genre movie, going between elements of sci-fi and time travel alongside psychological horror.
The trailer shows young Sandy, played by Thomasin McKenzie, struggling to fit in as she moves to London to study.
Soon, she begins entering 1960s London, apparently in her dreams, and becomes this beautiful jazz singer, played by Anya Taylor-Joy.
In the real world, she starts to assimilate many of her idol’s moves and even begins to dress like her and style her hair similarly – until something sinister arrives.
