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).
In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara, “American Horror Story”), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill, “The Good Wife”) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, “Southland”) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
