Edgar Wright's Last Night In Soho Got Its Title After A Conversation With Quentin Tarantino

Edgar Wright's Last Night In Soho Got Its Title After A Conversation With Quentin Tarantino

Edgar Wright and Quentin Tarantino are pals, and they even worked together briefly on one film "Grindhouse" back when it was a double feature and not sold separately as Tarantino's "Death Proof" and Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror." Wright directed "Don't," one of the funny fake trailers between the two movies. Tarantino also lent DVD commentary to "Hot Fuzz," the middle installment in Wright's Cornetto trilogy. 

Apparently, it was around the time of "Grindhouse," all those years ago, when Tarantino put the idea in Wright's head for the title of his upcoming psychological horror thriller, "Last Night in Soho." The new movie, starring Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Matt Smith, made its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival this month. Our review was mostly positive.

"Last Night in Soho" will open exclusively in theaters on October 29, 2021, via Focus Features, having had its release date pushed back several times because of the pandemic. In a new interview with Total Film, Wright explains how Tarantino impacted the naming of this film.

"The Best Title Music For A Film That's Never Been Made"

The September 16 issue of Total Film, which features an "Eternals" cover story, also takes the reader on set with Wright for "Last Night in Soho." There, he talks about the genesis of the film's title.

It started with a discussion of the song "Hold Tight" by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich. Tarantino used that song in "Death Proof," and it sparked a discussion between the two filmmakers and music lovers. Wright said:

"I was talking to him about that song, and that band, and he said, 'Have you ever heard 'Last Night in Soho'?' He played it for me, and he goes, 'This is the best title music for a film that's never been made.' I started amassing this playlist called 'Soho' that was 300 songs from the '60s. I hadn't thought what the film was going to be called. Then for a long time, it was called Red Light Area, but there was a film called Red Lights, with Cillian Murphy. And then I thought, 'OK, the film is The Night Has a Thousand Eyes'. And then I looked on IMDb, and there's already a film called Night Has a Thousand Eyes. F**k. So then it was staring me in the face, because I'd heard this song, and I thought it was great: Last Night in Soho."

It's good to know that Edgar Wright checks IMDb before naming his movies. I was a big fan of "Baby Driver," and I know there's a lot of love already for Wright with cult classics like "Shaun of the Dead" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." So I'm eager to see "Last Night in Soho," and I'm sure plenty of other moviegoers are as well.

"Last Night in Soho" opens on October 29, 2021. It has a 17-day window of theatrical exclusivity, so even if you're not ready to venture out to the theater again, it should hopefully be on VOD a few weeks later.

Former Spider-Man Actor Andrew Garfield Calls Tom Holland The Perfect Peter Parker

He has nothing but good things to say about Tom Holland! The post Former Spider-Man Actor Andrew Garfield Calls Tom Holland The Perfect Peter Parker appeared first on Heroic Hollywood.

Former Spider-Man Actor Andrew Garfield Calls Tom Holland The Perfect Peter Parker

Former Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield calls Marvel Tom Holland the perfect Peter Parker.

Back in 2012, Andrew Garfield was the first actor to take over the role of Spider-Man following the departure of Tobey Maguire and series director Sam Raimi. The movie that resulted was The Amazing Spider-Man which received mixed to positive reviews and earned enough money to justify a sequel. The following film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received a less warm reception and while it wasn’t a flop it did not earn as much money as Sony was hoping for.

Live-Action ‘Marvel Zombies’ Project Reportedly In Development

Following the film’s reception, Sony cut a deal with Disney and Marvel Studios to allow a version of Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The result was Tom Holland’s version of Spider-Man who first appeared in Captain America: Civil War before appearing in his own films. Many rumors have surrounded his latest film, Spider-Man: No Way Home which includes Willem Dafoe returning as Green Goblin and both Toey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s versions of the character appearing in the film. Since these rumors started, Garfield has maintained that he is not in the latest Tom Holland film, calling recently surfaced images of him on the set photoshopped. He has not been quite, however, about what he thinks of Tom Holland as Peter Parker.

Even before appearing in Captain America: Civil War, Andrew Garfield was excited to see Tom Holland in the role and to be an outside fan of the franchise once again. In a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, he went even further with this calling him the perfect Peter Parker and Spider-Man. You can see the full interview below:

Here is the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home:

“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.”

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, J.B. Smoove, Benedict Wong, Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, Tony Revolori and J.K. Simmons.
