For the first minute, I didn’t think much of the trailer for Edgar Wright’s latest, Last Night in Soho. It’s about a contemporary teenager, Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie), who is fashion obsessed and mysteriously able of entering the 1960s, where she inhabits the body of Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Queen’s Gambit). There, Sandy meets her idol, Jack (Matt Smith), and this is where it gets interesting: Jack appears to murder Sandy(?) in the 1960s, and Eloise must uncover the truth behind the unsolved crime in the present. It’s like the excellent but short-lived Awake, only instead of alternate timelines, it’s different time periods.

Diana Rigg and Terence Stamp also star in Wright’s first feature since 2017’s Baby Driver.

Last Night in Soho opens in theaters on October 29th.
