Baby Driver Trailer

"The moment you catch feelings, is the moment you catch a bullet." Sony has launched the first official trailer for Edgar Wright's new movie - titled Baby Driver. This is premiering at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend, which is why the trailer is being launched today to go along with all the crazy good buzz this movie is going to have coming out of its premiere. Ansel Elgort stars as a getaway driver named Baby who drives to music, and the movie is said to be set entirely to music with an energetic soundtrack. He gets coerced into working on a heist doomed to fail. The full cast includes Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, with Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx. From the footage in this trailer, I'm totally hyped for this movie, it's going to be awesome especially with all the music. Seriously wow. Turn it up to 11!

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Edgar Wright's Baby Driver, direct from YouTube:

And here's the alternate international trailer for Wright's Baby Driver, also from Sony's YouTube:

Baby Driver Poster

A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom. Baby Driver is both written and directed by British filmmaker/wizard extraordinaire Edgar Wright (follow him @edgarwright), of the films A Fistful of Fingers, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and The World's End previously. The film is premiering at the SXSW Film Festival this month. Sony Pictures will then release Wright's Baby Driver in theaters everywhere starting June 28th, 2017 this summer. What do you make of this trailer?

Woo, looks fun

Was well into that. Will check it. It's crazy that Motown music and soul/funk in general was so well made that it still powers movie trailers today, modern music definitely has power, but it might because soul tunes were so well orchestrated that they still seem more cinematic.

that whole "mike myers" scene was closer to Tarantino than Tarantino's been recently....

by the way, that is bass maestro funkster extraordinaire FLEA in said "mike myers" scene...

Well, it's a love story. What else could have sense in this? However, Drive with Ryan Gosling was a bit more tangible ... But I am glad that Kevin Spacey at least is not making a caricature of himself ...

I liked Drive. But Gosling was the only thing that bothered me in the movie.

tarek on Mar 12, 2017


I was ok with him. Why did he bother you? It seemed ok to me ...

I don't know...his James Dean wannabe acting.

tarek on Mar 13, 2017


It's hard to say with some actors these days. He is imitating something, that's for sure. But, on the end, he has done more or less a standard and decent job with his role. I guess, he was also participating in what I liked very much in Drive and that is the whole atmosphere in that film, it was good directing. And I liked the music...

shiboleth on Mar 13, 2017


That wasn't James Dean at all. More like Clint Eastwood from the Man With No Name Trilogy.

bumboclot on Mar 14, 2017


Clint Eastwood? It's a stretch. He shares nothing with Eastwood.

tarek on Mar 15, 2017


Hey Bo! Well, Spacey was worse than this in some other projects, to be honest. But, if you compare him with others in this, he still looks decent. But, I must also give in a bit and say that the whole thing seems to be pretty doubtful and shabby so Spacey is and must still be looking solid amid all this mess. But yeah, he's also his unavoidable part. As for Gosling, I don't know, I like him there (in Drive). Although I would agree he's not some stellar actor of classic posture, but he does his part wherever you put him. And he has chosen some good directors along his career so I have no problem watching him sometimes. But then again, nothing to die for, of course. It's just my view on the level of fun and not about some classical roles or films. They don't do either of that in everything mentioned ...

Thanks for that Bo. It was like a missing link of what I was thinking of. Cheers ...

shiboleth on Mar 13, 2017


I will watch this movie with my eyes.

Quanah on Mar 12, 2017


Premise was good, but it turned quickly into a F&F spin-off. It's more bullet than Bullitt. ;D

tarek on Mar 12, 2017


you saw it Tarek? I love Edgar Wright, but I HATE F&F. Tell me it's better than that garbage!

RAW_D on Mar 12, 2017


Edgar Wright has a style all his own and his movies are hugely entertaining and comical. The international trailer is more Edgar Wright than that dreadful other trailer. I've liked all his movies, with the exception of World's End. Yeah, it's not going to hold a candle to Bullitt, but I'm sure it's much more cohesive and rational than the F&F schlock. That's my hope anyway....

RAW_D on Mar 12, 2017


That international trailer delivered for me. I'm there.

RAW_D on Mar 12, 2017


It's Edgar Wright. Yes. I will check this out

TheOct8pus on Mar 13, 2017


Ansel Elgort = Steve McQueen . Bahahaha I was praying I saw the voice of reason . Edgar Wright can't "turn water into wine" with this cast and BS plot. The "truck slide by" scene is done in every POS film of this genre . Same tale,same lame acting , only the vehicles change . Ugh x2!!

I am thinking about 'cooler heads'... I think that's lost since films are way too cool these days to be, well, really cool and good films. But that's what they used to be before, too. I might overstretch the argument, but I am afraid that classical Hollywood had today's age of cinema in store for us long time ago since it was always adjusting its production to tastes. So, were those heads cooler before? I'm afraid not. Although, they had much better way to express what film should be and they were more prone to discover film as an art and not just a production. But nowadays, it looks just like a phase run by people who were mostly cool in thinking about the business and not about the art. You Bo, might be one of commendable exceptions among them, for which we here salute you, but it seems that most of the people in film business are just not that. They are not cool since they are just too cool for money and popular taste that provide good life for them. I hope you don't mind me saying that. Cheers Bo ...

shiboleth on Mar 13, 2017


Cool, thanks. Just thinking a bit. Which is ok, I guess. Cheers, Bo ...

I'm excited to see this, Wright's first non-parody action movie. That whole genre has had an injection of exciting new talent in the last few years.

bumboclot on Mar 14, 2017


I'm not getting all the hype? Looks mildly entertaining at most....yeah, I'll still check it out.

CShane on Mar 14, 2017
