    Official Trailer: https://youtu.be/tB9WUIv9KH8

    Official Poster: https://twitter.com/edgarwright/status/1397205828701069312?s=19

    Synopsis by Focus Features:

    Edgar Wright’s Psychological Thriller about a young girl (Thomasin McKenzie), passionate in fashion design, who is mysteriously able to enter 1960s London where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe Singer (Anya Taylor Joy). But 1960s London is not what it appears and times seems to fall apart with shady consequences

    Directed by: Edgar Wright

    Written by: Edgar Wright and Krysty Wilson Cairns (Academy Award Nominee for 1917, Penny Dreadful)

    Produced by: Tim Belvan, Eric Fellner, Nira Park and Edgar Wright

    Cinematography by: Chung Hoon Chung

    Cast: Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor Joy, Matt Smith, Jessie Mei Li, Diana Rigg, Terrence Stamp, Rita Tushingham, James and Oliver Phelps

    Release Date: 22 October 2021

    One of the most anticipated movies of 2021 and perhaps one of Focus’ award vehicle for this year’s Awards Season. Its best shot maybe on Craft and Techs Categories, yet I personally think that it also has chances in major categories such as Best Picture, Best Director for Wright, Best Actress for McKenzie (though this is a long shot), Best Supporting Actress for Taylor Joy and Best Original Screenplay.

    In previous decade,  Black Swan and Get Out were two Horror/Psycho-Horror movies which managed to score nominations in major Categoried, with Portman winning Best Actress in 2011.

    The trailer definitely makes it look like a crafts contender, at a minimum. Wright’s movies have always had style aplenty, but now he’s adding in the period piece factor. Costume Design seems like a particularly good bet given that the main character is a fashion designer, so the movie is outright calling attention to the discipline.

    Above-the-line nominations are always dicey for horror.

    Anya Taylor-Joy this year:

    I’ll be disappointed if her “big” year ended up like 2016 Elle Fanning. One polarizing(Neon Demon), One great movie (20th Century Women) and One failed Oscar bait (Live By Night) and went home empty handed without noms

    Letterboxd says this film is 157 minutes long. I doubt it’s real but can someone explain where they get these random runtimes?

    Probably insider who has seen it through screening.

    All film data on Letterboxd is taken from The Movie Database, which is essentially a wiki. So somebody put that information up on TMDb.

    Empire’s Interview with McKenzie on Soho hints plenty of twists:

     

    “It’s genuinely something I’ve never seen before,” says McKenzie of Wright’s latest, hinting at plenty of twists in the plot – which remains tightly under wraps for now. “Very unique. I love things where you’re reading a script, and you know where it’s going, and then it just goes in a completely different direction.” And it seems there are surprises in store from Eloise herself too. “She’s almost got kind of a sixth sense,” she teases. “She can feel things that are on another level that most people can’t see or feel.”

     

    I hope this is some kind of David Fincher psycho thriller Twists a la Se7en, Fight Club and Gone Girl, not some cheap stupid twists a la most of Shyamalan movies. Edgar Wright has done some twists in the Past though (Hot Fuzz and Baby Driver, though im not sure whether Buddy’s transition into villain could be considered as one) so lets hope the movie wouldnt be divisive as hell

    As of now, the two leads are now in Top 30 IMDB Starmeter since Soho’s Trailer has been released. Idk if this will related to their awards chances but surely it gains them some traction and Buzz, which could help

    Jesus, no please.

    That screenwriter should have never been nominated for that mediocre screenplay for 1917 in the first place, let’s not repeat this mistake.

    Sue me all you want to but 1917’s screenplay got the job done. Not nomination-worthy (movie isn’t very screenplay-) but it was solid.

    I think its good for Edgar Wright to have a Co-Writer to write the screenplay (and its an Academy Award nominee and the Writer of Penny Dreadful S3. While he never made bad movies so far, Baby Driver (which was written by himself) is somewhat made few people who seems to be his cult following, felt let down and i could understand why.

    Since McKenzie herself and some people in reddit hint that there will be lot of surprises/twists, i hope he didnt drop the ball this time (McKenzie hints that there will be sort of Baby Driver/Gone Girl/The Worlds End shift)

    Wright isnt new to plot twists as He already done it few times in Hot Fuzz, The Worlds End and Baby Driver so we will see. I hope its not Shyamalan kind of twist
