If you already want to see the movie, you might want to skip this trailer

Director Edgar Wright’s 1960s nightmare, Last Night in Soho has a gorgeous and creepy new trailer. The latest trailer was released on Wednesday, and gives us our clearest look yet at the trippy horror movie’s plot — which may not be a good thing.

The new footage goes into quite a bit more detail on the plot than the previous trailer, leading viewers through at least a few scenes that feel like they should be massive, surprising, and twisty reveals. Of course, Focus Features, the studio behind the film, wants to throw as much excitement into the trailer as possible to get audiences to venture out to theaters — especially this year — but if you’re already pretty sure you want to check out Last Night in Soho, you might want to skip this new look entirely.

And it turns out, this opinion isn’t just ours, it’s also shared by the movie’s own director. Wright tweeted about the trailer the moment it was released, but also included a warning for viewers: “if you are already sold and would prefer to know NOTHING more of the secrets within, then avert your eyes now.”

If you want a brief description of the movie’s plot, without the big spoilers, here you go:

Last Night in Soho follows an aspiring young fashion designer named Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie) who dreams (literally) of living in London in the 1960s. Her dreams are consumed mostly by visions of Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy), a lounge singer from the 60s who’s deep into London’s nightlife and is swept off her feet by a charismatic bachelor (Matt Smith). But the deeper Eloise’s dreams get into Sandy’s life, the more Eloise becomes certain that everything she’s seeing really happened, and the more the lines between reality and the dream start to blur.

Last Night in Soho is Wright’s first narrative movie since 2017’s Baby Driver, though he did release a music documentary earlier this year called The Sparks Brothers. Wright’s new movie debuted at the Venice International Film Festival in early September and was met with warm reception.

Last Night in Soho will be released in theaters on Oct. 29.
