Baby Driver’s Got The Beat!

Baby (ANSEL ELGORT, front right), Bats (JAMIE FOXX, front left), JD (LANNY JOON, back right), Eddie (FLEA BALZARY, back left) wait in the car in TriStar Pictures’ BABY DRIVER.

I can imagine the pitch for Baby Driver, ‘It’s a coming of age story about this young guy who’s the best getaway car driver ever – because he has tinnitus and listens to music to drown it out. When he falls in love with a diner waitress, he wants out.’

When you strip Baby Driver down to its most basic, that’s the essence of it. That’s what it comes down to – and it works beautifully.

When Edgar Wright left Ant-Man over creative differences, he segued directly into Baby Driver – his long-gestating take on the ‘one last job’ crime flick.

The trailer for Baby Driver suggests that Wright really loves crime/heist flicks. Baby (Ansel Elgort) is the fresh-faced driver on jobs planned by the coolly ruthless Doc (Kevin Spacey). Each of Doc’s jobs involves a different crew – with Baby being the only constant.

Then Baby falls in love with a waitress named Debora (Lily James) and grudgingly takes one last job to fund getting away from it all (all being Doc).

Baby Driver opens on August 11th.
