The trailer for Edgar Wright’s new film, Last Night in Soho, is here, including a dangerous and seductive Matt Smith

Originally to be released last year, the global pandemic Last Night in Soho is now set to open in cinemas this October. The first trailer was released this week to great enthusiasm from movie fans. And it also meant we got our first glimpse of former Doctor Who Matt Smith’s Jack. He’s a handsome and seductive figure who haunts the dreams of protagonist Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie).

Eloise embraces the glamour and fantasy of Jack and Sandy’s London, but is it all an enticing trap?

In the film, Eloise is newly arrived to the hustle and bustle of modern London, discovering it’s not the glamourous wonderland she expected. But at night her dreams transport to the London of 1965. A Jame Bond tinted world of cool clubs, handsome rogues, and beautiful clothes. But what’s the connection between her and Sandy (Anna Taylor-Joy) the woman whose face Eloise wears in these dreams. And can the seductive, intoxicating Jack (Matt Smith) really be trusted? As things take a darker turn, even the modern waking world offers no sanctuary…

The film also co-stars the iconic Diana Rigg. It’s a final posthumous role for the late actor who among her roles in projects as diverse as The Avengers and Game of Thrones, was Mrs. Gillyflower in The Crimson Horror. The film is written and directed by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and the trailer wears the film’s giallo influences on its sleeves. Meanwhile, Matt Smith, as previously reported, is keeping up his busy post-Doctor Who years. He’s currently filming Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon.
