‘Baby Driver’ may already be our favorite movie of the year! The thriller, starring Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Kevin Spacey, and a few of our other faves, has Ansel in the hot seat as a daring getaway driver for a major crime boss. And that’s just in the 1st trailer. Watch it here!
First great part of the Baby Driver trailer: how often are we ever going to get the chance in our lives to call Ansel Elgort, 22, “baby”? Well, we can now, as he stars as prodigy getaway driver Baby (no last name), who’s forced into working for Doc (Kevin Spacey) to be even for an unknown debt. Drama!
Directed and written by Edgar Wright, the man responsible for awesome flicks like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Baby Driver feels like a playful take on a crime drama. The whole film is set to the soundtrack in Baby’s head, as he’s constantly wearing headphones everywhere he goes. This is going to be majorly music heavy; La La Land with a body count, right?
We’re digging the love story between Baby and the pretty blonde who works at the diner he frequents, Deborah (Lily James, 27). They fall head over heels for each other, but Baby’s crime life might complicate things. It looks like Lily has some huge ass-kicking moments in the film, though! Were those duel-wielding machine guns we saw? The film has a star-studded supporting cast, as well: Jon Hamm, Jon Bernthal, Jamie Foxx, and Eiza González are all along for the ride! How cool does that sound?
Baby Driver is pulling into theaters on August 1, 2017. But first, Ansel will be honored for his work on the film at CinemaCon 2017 with the CinemaCon Male Star of Tomorrow award on Thursday, March 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada. We can’t wait!
