Cult director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) is back with his much-anticipated stylish new film called “Baby Driver”, and it looks like his most ambitious movie yet. The trailer shows plenty of excellently choreographed car chases and rollicking musical soundtrack, as title character “Baby” Ansel Elgort (who starred in last three Divergent Series films, and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’) tries to get out of criminal life from Kevin Spacey’s character ‘Doc’.
A few years ago, director Wright was attached to a would-be summer Marvel blockbuster Ant-Man, but later dropped out due to “creative differences”. A few months later, he announced that ‘Baby’ will be his next film instead, which he will both write and direct. Today we get a glimpse of the fruits of his labor.
The movie had its world premiere at South by Southwest, and so far it has been getting strong reviews, with HR calling it “a sweet and speed-crazed crime film you can dance to.”
Here’s a film synopsis to give you a better idea: Talented getaway driver Baby (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. After meeting the woman (Lily James) of his dreams, he sees a chance to ditch his criminal lifestyle and make a clean break. Coerced into working for a mob boss (Kevin Spacey), Baby must face the music as a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
Baby Driver, which also stars Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx and Eiza González, rides into theaters on August 11th, 2017.
