Film festivals are in full swing again, which means that critics and patrons will get a first look at the upcoming slate of films such as Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune, Kenneth Branagh‘s Belfast, and Joe Wright‘s Cyrano. When the audience finally got a chance to see these films, a director has asked viewers not to ruin his film ahead of the theatrical release later this month.
In a post that Edgar Wright shared with Instagram and Twitter, the Last night in Soho director begged Venice Film Festival visitors to “keep the experience intact for future audiences.” Last night in Soho, like so many other movies, has been met with many delays due to COVID-19. The film was originally scheduled to be released on September 25, 2020, before being delayed until April 23, 2021 and again until October 22.
“I would love the audience too to take on that journey when the film opens,” Wright wrote in his post. “We have deliberately pushed the film back to this fall date, not only so that it can hopefully be enjoyed on the biggest possible screen, but also so that the nights would be longer and the audience could go in the cold … literally.”
Last night in Soho is Wright’s first attack on psychological horror, which is often based on the element of surprise and allows the audience to unravel the experience for themselves. The film plays stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, Matt Smith, Diana Rigg, Terence stamp, Jessie Mei Li, Rita Tushingham, Michael Ajao, Synnøve Karlsen, and Margaret Nolan. Since the film was made in 2019, both Rigg and Nolan have gone away and made Last night in Soho their last film appearance. Last night in Soho is Wright’s second film this year to come after Sparks Brothers was released earlier this summer.
Last night in Soho will be published on October 22. Read Edgar Wright’s message below:
