Edgar Wright’s ‘Last Night in Soho’ Received A Five-Minute Standing Ovation At Venice Film Festival

Edgar Wright’s ‘Last Night in Soho’

During Edgar Wright’s hallucinogenic psychological thriller “Last Night in Soho,” the Venice audience at the Sala Grande theatre couldn’t take their gaze away from Anya Taylor-Joy.

But, as is customary, Anya was nowhere to be seen as the film concluded shortly after midnight on Saturday, and the spotlight was thrown on the actors to garner acclaim from the festival visitors.

As bewilderment spread throughout the theatre, director Edgar Wright and Matt Smith cheered along with the audience. Taylor-Joy (wearing a pink Dior Haute Couture gown with a matching hat) threw open the doors to the theater’s balcony and returned to her seat to a swarm of loud applause after approximately a minute.

There, she and the actors were given a five-minute standing ovation for the genre film that enthralled Venice, as shown by the enthusiastic reception at the premiere and a slew of positive reviews for the impending Universal Pictures release.

However, considering the role Anya Taylor-Joy portrays in the film, it’s possible that her absence was necessary. More information would be a breach of Wright’s Friday Twitter request that Venice audiences not divulge any “Last Night in Soho” spoilers.

With its twists and turns, the film is the type of edgy studio production that may sell tickets far beyond its opening weekend thanks to strong word of mind. However, the success of the film will be determined by how the epidemic impacts autumn box office sales.

After the audience stopped clapping in Venice, Anya removed her mask and said: “Thank you!”
