Focus Features has announced Edgar Wright’s “Last Night in Soho” will open in theaters April 23, 2021. The distributor had originally set to open Wright’s latest project in September, but the director said on social media the opening had to be pushed as he would not be able to complete “Last Night in Soho” in time for its original release date because of the pandemic. The movie stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, Matt Smith, Terence Stamp, and Diana Rigg.
“Haunted by someone else’s past, but we’ll see you in the future,” Wright wrote to his Twitter followers while announcing the film’s new release date. “It’s true, ‘Last Night in Soho’ is not quite finished yet due to Covid-19. But, I’m excited for you all to experience it, at a big screen near you, on April 23, 2021.”
A totally understandable and sensible push back. I will look forward to its release, whenever it may be.
