First Baby Trailer Arrives After SXSW Debut

First Baby Trailer Arrives After SXSW Debut

While the film doesn't open in theaters until this August, filmmaker Edgar Wright's highly anticipated Baby Driver just had its world premiere at the SXSW 2017 Film Festival last night. Not only that, it sounds like the soundtrack is going to something special, not to mention a host of talented actors that includes Jon Bernthal, Jamie Foxx, the aforementioned Spacey and Jon Hamm. Rather, it's a pacy energetic action movie with the emphasis on auto chases, driven by the iPod music of the titular Baby (Ansel Elgort).

This looks like exactly the movie that I was hoping for, and it's something that Edgar Wright's most loyal fans might not have expected from him. Plus, whoever is driving, the chase scenes in the trailer look insane without being Fast and the Furiously cartoonish. He added, "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". That little detail likely means we'll get a good soundtrack to accompany some excellent-looking auto chases as Baby tries to get out from the grips of the people who control him. He was supposed to helm Ant-Man in 2015, but after dropping out of that project, we knew he was working on a crime comedy known as Baby Driver. It's amusing in places but it's not a comedy. Which is something that we see glimpses of in the trailer above.

Bouye played on one of the league's best defenses in Houston, and his setup in Jacksonville might not be too shabby, either. Bouye, and as you can see below from NFL Network's James Palmer, the Denver Broncos made a late push for Calais Campbell .

Baby Driver also stars Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Jon Bernthal and Eiza González and is due out on August 11th in the U.S. and August 16th in the UK. However, after being roped in to work for a crime cross, played by Kevin Spacey, "he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love, and freedom".
