Writer/Director Edgar Wright's Last Night In Soho Heads Home On Jan. 18 From Universal Pictures Home Entertainment

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment announced this past week that writer/director Edgar Wright’s time-tripping murder mystery with a decided edge, Last Night in Soho, will be arriving in the home entertainment packaged media marketplace as a three-SKU product offering on Jan. 18.

The ARR comes in at 81 days and box office receipts have just cleared the $10.1 million mark.

Planned for release are Combo Pack editions for the 4K Ultra HD (with Blu-ray) and Blu-ray (with DVD) formats, plus as stand-alone DVD edition.

Starring Thomasin McKenzie (Old, Jojo Rabbit, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies) as Eloise, a would-be fashion designer off to school in London, she soon begins having visions of Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy — Morgan, Glass, The New Mutants), a singer who goes down the rabbit hole in swinging Soho of the 1960s.   The visions keep coming as Eloise is transported to the dream world of Sandie, who has made one bad decision after another … her death; her murder is foretold and Eloise feels compelled to solve the crime!!

There is just one little problem with Eloise-turned-Sherlock, no one believes her, except the “real killer” and nothing is as it seems.

Last Night in Soho is perhaps one of the more original film stories of 2021 … and it is blessed with some nice cast choices, including Diana Rigg (in her final film role), Rita Tushingham (a star from the “Swinging 60s”) and Terence Stamp.

Bonus features include two commentary options, one with filmmaker Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Baby Driver), who is joined by his co-writer, Kristy Wilson-Cairns (Oscar-nominated for her 1917 script), and the second features Wright and film editor Paul Machliss and the film’s composer, Steve Price.

There are also deleted scenes, pre-production tests examples for hair, makeup, lighting and f/x, plus five production featurettes — “Meet Eloise,” “Dreaming of Sandie,” “Smoke and Mirrors,” “On the Streets of Soho” and “Time Travelling.”
