The final trailer for Last Night In Soho has been released. The movie is directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, Shaun of the Dead) and it hits theaters on October 29.

While last month's first trailer was packed with striking imagery but entirely dialogue-free, this one gives us more of the plot. Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit) plays a young fashion designer who arrives in London to pursue her career dreams. Her favorite era is the 1960s, and one night she finds herself transport back to that time, where she inhabits the body of a singer named Sandy, played by Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen's Gambit).

As the trailer progresses it becomes clear that something strange is going on, with the handsome young man placed by Matt Smith (Doctor Who, The Crown) potentially a murderer. The movie looks like a thrilling, stylish blend of time-travel movie and psychedelic horror--check the trailer out below:

Last Night In Soho also features several veteran '60s British icons, including Rita Tushingham, Terence Stamp, and Diana Rigg in her final performance. The movie is written by Wright and Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who also co-wrote Sam Mendes's acclaimed 1917.

In a recent interview with the LA Times, Wright revealed that Quentin Tarantino's recreation of late '60s Los Angeles in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was an inspiration for him to do the same with London's Soho district in his movie. "Seeing the miracles QT and his team had done with four city blocks in the busiest street in Hollywood definitely gave me inspiration that we could achieve a lot of our scenes in camera," he said. "I'm looking forward to showing him the movie. He convinced me it was possible!"
