Principal photography has now finished on Last Night in Soho, Edgar Wright’s next film, and while we still know very little about it, we at least have a glimpse at its aesthetics. Yesterday, Wright took to Instagram to share a single glimpse at the film, and it definitely looks alarming.

That is a wrap on main unit photography on my next feature film, 'Last Night in Soho’. Many thanks to my insanely talented cast of @thomasin.mckenzie, @anyataylorjoy, Matt Smith, @_michaelajao, as well as a few others for you to discover. Endless props to @workingtitlefilms, @focusfeatures, and @film4 for their support. And of course my superhumanly hard-working crew members: You know who you are. Plus all the love to my team of @npark1906, @playnicemarceline, @leojt, @ladylauraface, @richiestarzec, and @brad.down. Can't wait for you all to see @lastnightinsohomovie, in theaters September 25th, 2020! (Production still by @parisatag)
The single image, a still featuring one of the lead actresses — I can’t actually tell from the makeup if it’s Thomasin McKenzie or Anna Taylor Joy, both of whom are announced to star — features a woman in runny eye makeup, covering her face with wide eyes. Flinching away from something terrifying.
The film has previously been called, by Wright, “psychological horror,” though this image seems more traditionally frightening than the more subtle scares of a lot of films in that genre.
Last Night in Soho is set to hit theatres September 26, 2020 in the U.S. with no Australian release date set.
