Cult maestro Edgar Wright is set to make a return to cinema in a big way with his action crime thriller Baby Driver, which has released its first images.
Here’s the official synopsis:
A talented young getaway driver named Baby (Ansel Elgort) who is empowered by his own unique music playlist finally thinks he’s hit the jackpot when he meets the girl of his dreams. But when he is coerced into a dangerous job by crime boss Doc (Kevin Spacey), Baby has to do everything he can to complete the job and walk away clean.
Inspired in part by a music video that Wright directed for Mint Royale’s Blue Song in 2003, Baby Driver is the director’s most ambitious film yet. In addition to Elgort and Spacey the cast is packed out with an awesome list of characters including Jamie Foxx as an impulsive gunman, Jon Hamm as a wild playboy, Eiza Gonzalez as his scandalous partner in crime, and Lily James as Baby’s one true love.
Baby Driver is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing films of the year and will be released on August 10 in New Zealand and Australia, August 11 in the US and August 18 in the UK.
