Baby Driver centres around the titular Baby (Ansel Elgort), who no-one suggests should be put in a corner during the entire trailer, but who is coerced into working for a crime boss. As a young getaway driver, he finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail, in a film where I wasn’t expecting a huge amount from the trailer, but then I saw it was written and directed by Edgar Wright (the Shaun of the Dead trilogy) and I laughed a lot and hugely enjoyed the action within.
Also starring Lily James, Eiza González, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Sky Ferreira, Flea, Jamie Foxx and Jon Bernthal (The Accountant‘s only saving grace), I can’t wait to see this… although I’ll have to wait four months, obviously.
Baby Driver is released in the UK on August 16th.
