Filming Last Night In Soho On The Streets Of Soho (Video Clip)

Last Night In Soho was one of my favourite films last year. And won all sorts of plaudits from the unlikeliest of places. Which is how I found myself telling co-writer and director Edgar Wright that my wife hadn't taken my recommendation to watch it, as she has a thing about ghost stories, instead she had to take the recommendation of a relatively drunk vicar at a socially distanced barbeque. I get the feeling a lot of word of mouth around the Home Counties spread in that fashion. And as I type this I am heading into Soho, to work at a club on Dean Street before heading down to a Channel 4 screening. I will be passing by and through many of the places seen in the following clip on my Boris bike, as Edgar Wright and co-writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns talk about the importance of filming the movie in Soho itself, the history it has for film making, and how they chose locations. Including Berwick Street, just up from Gosh Comics. As Last Night In Soho is available on digital, 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD from today in the UK, from Universal.

There are naturally a bunch of bonuses for each format. Here's how those break down:
