Thoughts: I normally don’t get to have the “full” movie-going experience anymore when going to theaters. Ha… “when I go to theaters” that hasn’t happened in over a year! Sorry, let’s start again.
Back when I went to theaters, I normally didn’t get to have the “full” movie-going experience because there are rarely previews at press screenings. Movie trailers in general don’t tend to interest me anymore because I can just look at the length and know they are going to show the majority of the film, so I don’t even bother. It’s helped a great deal in going in blind, so I’ll usually just watch the first 30-60 seconds to get a feel and then shut it off.
With Last Night in Soho, I found that I wasn’t able to turn it off after 30 seconds, 60 seconds, 90 seconds…I had to watch the whole thing. An eternal caveat I need to remember is that every bad movie can be edited into a fantastic trailer but there’s something about this new Edgar Wright (The World’s End) thriller arriving in October that looks like it is up to something good. Starring exciting up and comers Anya Taylor-Joy (Radioactive) and Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit), it shows a lot but tells a little – the perfect kind of teaser. Other trailers may arrive as the release date grows near, but I don’t need to see anything more. Along with the intriguing poster…I’m sold at first glance on Last Night in Soho.
