“Last Night Soho” filmmaker Edgar Wright has asked viewers at the Venice Film Festival not to give the plot of his latest film before its October 29 release.
The movie had its world premiere outside the competition at the festival on Saturday.
Prior to the film’s first press screening, Wright posted a message on his Twitter feed entitled “A Note from the Filmmakers.”
“Last night in Soho,” our heroine Elos went on a trip. First from the country to the city, then at another time …, ”the post reads.
“When the film opens on October 29, I would also like the audience to go on that journey. We have deliberately pushed the film to this autumn date, not only is it expected to be enjoyed on the biggest screen, but the nights will be longer and viewers will be able to go colder … literally, ”the post continues.
“I and the cast and crew of ‘Last Night in Soho’ are thrilled to premiere at the Venice Film Festival and we, the first viewers, want to keep the privacy to you so that others can discover them later. While writing about the film, we shared the story with Elise. Everyone who wants to see it will love to discover it. So, please, if you can, keep the experience intact for future visitors so that what happens in ‘Last Night in Soho’ stays in Soho … “
The letter is right and signed by the cast and crew.
