Whether it’s the infusion of upbeat retro soundtrack, or the blistering visuals, Wright is promising something innovative here and if this trailer is any indicator, he doesn’t disappoint. Described as a music driven action thriller, Baby Driver makes it’s premiere at this years SXSW festival in Austin, which is the perfect place to unveil this kind of movie.
