And in it appear Anya Taylor-Joy and Thomasin McKenzie (Elsa, the girl who was hiding from the Nazis in the house of the protagonist of Jojo rabbit).
“It is very claustrophobic. The colors are very intense. It’s a very well-run acid trip. I think people will like it, you definitely won’t get bored, ”Anya told Indiewire, with respect to the movie.
He continued: “Wright loves movies. Love any form of art. It’s really fun talking about music with him. He just knows everything. I don’t know how it all fits in his head. I loved. He loves choreography and things happen with rhythms. It is not quite at the level of Baby driver, in which exact car chases are coordinated to the beat of the music, but I perform in the form of rhythms in my head. I count them myself and he says them out loud. So it’s wonderful to do that. “

What is the film about
If to clarify a little what the film is really about, we appeal to the official synopsis, we are left with the following:
“A young woman with a passion for fashion design is mysteriously capable of stepping into the 1960s, where she meets her idol, a dazzling aspiring singer. But the London of the sixties is not what it seems, and time seems to be unraveling with grim consequences. “

Apparently it is Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie) who will become obsessed through a mysterious connection with Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy).
Wright also gave his opinion. “There is something I have in common with the protagonist, and that is that I have a lot of nostalgia for a decade in which I have not lived. Think of the London of the ’60s. What would that be like? Isn’t that what she imagines? “

“I know some of you may be disappointed (by the delay), but I hope more of you can experience it the way we intended: in the dark, on a big screen, with an audience. See you at the movies ”, the filmmaker had said on his Twitter account a short time ago.
And keep an eye out for the 47-year-old English director: it is announced that his next project is The fugitive (in English: The Running Man), based on the science fiction novel written by Stephen King, published under the alias Richard Bachman in 1982, set in a dystopian future in … 2025.

The film will be released in theaters only on October 22, 2021, apparently, and despite the fact that it has had many changes in its premiere date due to the coronavirus epidemic, it would continue in post-production, and it is not ruled out that it will be part of the Festival de Cannes (will be known next week) or Venice.
The lead male role is played by Matt Smith, who played the recently deceased Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II in the first two seasons of The Crown.
