Buckle up - Baby Driver's release is just around the corner. We can't wait.
Edgar Wright’s car chase extravaganza Baby Driver is screeching into cinemas in a plume of tire smoke in just under a month, and we couldn’t be any more excited. Whereas The Fast and Furious masks the stunt work with CGI and quick cuts, Baby Driver harks back to old-school movies like Walter Hill’s The Driver with real stunt driving and coherent camerawork. Just to get you pumped up for its release this month, another trailer has been released to reunite us with the all-star cast featuring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx.
Whereas the first trailer detailed the film’s plot, in which Ansel Elgort plays a young getaway driver who constantly listens to music to drown out his tinnitus and is trying to escape his life of crime, the second trailer focuses on Baby Driver's soundtrack which is integral to the story and pacing of the film.
Uniquely, every scene is synced to the songs that Ansel’s character listens to on his trusty iPod, as demonstrated with the use of the iconic 1958 song “Tequila” in the trailer. The trailer also highlights that Baby Driver has been a hit with the critics with a 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. One memorable quote says how Baby Driver “uses music the way the rest of us use air.” Color us intrigued – it’s refreshing to see a film dare to be original. We’re also reminded how Baby Driver uses practical stunts in the car chase action scenes which will resonate with gearheads. June 28th can’t come soon enough.
