The director of SHAUN OF THE DEAD takes a plunge into time-jumping psychological chills with a first-rate cast.

Focus Features has issued the first teaser trailer and poster for LAST NIGHT IN SOHO, coming to theaters October 22. Edgar Wright directed from a script he wrote with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, and the film stars genre fave Anya Taylor-Joy (THE WITCH, SPLIT), Thomasin McKenzie (JOJO RABBIT), Matt Smith, Terence Stamp, Diana Rigg, Rita Tushingham, Michael Ajao and Synnøve Karlsen. The synopsis: 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…”
