There are so many reasons why you should be excited for Edgar Wright‘s (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) Baby Driver. The movie centers on a partially deaf getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) who uses music to drown out the ringing in his ears. In the past Wright has used music in such a way where the music beats are perfectly choreographed to each action sequence. So imagine that, but with a car chase sequence.
With the film hitting theaters later this year, we are now getting a very early look at the film in new images that tease more than just a car chase, but also some of the characters, like the very fashionable Jamie Foxx‘s Bats, who is wearing a very killer jacket, and an almost unrecognizable Jon Hamm. Check it out below.
These images come to us from Cut Print Film. Now there are only three images below, one which shows Baby (Elgort) being waited on by Deborah (Lily James) at a diner. Another shows Baby getting ready for a job. And finally, Baby with Deborah, Bats (Foxx), and Buddy (Hamm) in an elevator. While it may not seem like much, the images do set the tone, especially the one with Elgort, James, Foxx, and Hamm.
Here’s what Wright told EW about choreographing music into an action movie:
“I always wanted to do an action movie that was powered by music. Itâ€™s something thatâ€™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 also stars Kevin Spacey, Jon Bernthal, and Eiza GonzÃ¡lez. The film hits theaters on August 11, 2017.
