Watch Edgar Wright’s BABY DRIVER Trailer Before It Gets Away
Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver trailer looks like a dangerously fun time.
Baby Driver, the new film from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright, stars Ansel Elgort as a getaway driver who attempts to leave the criminal life behind after meeting the girl of his dreams (Lily James).
The twist? Elgort’s titular character suffers from tinnitus and the movie’s action is choreographed to the music he plays to drown out the ringing in his ears.
“I always wanted to do an action movie that was powered by music,” says Wright, who also wrote the film. “It’s something that’s very much a part of my previous films and I thought of this idea of how to take that a stage further by having a character who listens to music the entire time. So, you have this young getaway driver who has to soundtrack his entire existence, particularly the bank robberies and fast getaways that come afterwards.”
Wright explains that Elgort’s character listens to an eclectic array of music as he burns rubber — “It’s quite a wide range of music, though. There’s about 35 songs in the movie and they range from very famous to more obscure. It’s supposed to reflect the character’s extremely eclectic taste in music.”
Baby Driver stars Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx.
