Trying to figure out how we left Baby Driver off our Top 20 Most Anticipated Films of 2017 is a huge headache for us here at Bro Knows. If you will pardon our obvious oversight for moment, we do have some awesome new images to share with you via the kind folks at CutPrintFilm. Written and directed by Edgar Wright, the man who brought you Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The Worlds End–brings us an all star cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey and oddly enough, Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
According to Wright, the film infuses music into the story to a degree where the action sequences are essentially choreographed to the beat of the soundtrack. Ansel Elgort is playing the titular character, who serves as a getaway driver for some nefarious criminals all while suffering from tinnitus. He apparently uses music to drown out his condition, allowing him to drive the hell out of these getaways.
Heres what Wright has said of Baby Driver:
“I always wanted to do an action movie that was powered by music. It’s something that’s very much a part of my previous films and I thought of this idea of how to take that a stage further by having a character who listens to music the entire time. So, you have this young getaway driver who has to soundtrack his entire existence, particularly the bank robberies and fast getaways that come afterwards.”
Baby Driver’s release date was pushed back a couple months from March 17th of this year to August 11th, where the film will open against the CHiPs remake, The Emoji Movie, and Charlize Theron’s new thriller The Coldest City. The Film Also stars, as the photos indicate, Lily James and absent from image, Jon Bernthal.
