‘Baby Driver’: New Images From Edgar Wright’s Getaway Driver Flick

Baby Driver header image

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.

Instead of releasing the fourth and final movie, The Divergent Series: Ascendant, as was originally planned in June of next year, Lionsgate has instead decided to move the final chapter directly to television. Part of this unexpected decision is so they can set up a future spinoff TV series.

Jon Bernthal

We’ve all heard of the falling out between Edgar Wright and Marvel Studios. And while it may be a slight disappointment that we never got to see Wright’s vision in the MCU, the fallout may have been a blessing in disguise as the director was free to move onto Baby Driver. Early details revealed that the film would be about Baby, a young and talented getaway mute driver who suffers from a chronic ringing in his ears. However, Baby relies on the beat of his own soundtrack. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey, and Eiza Gonzalez, are all strapped in for the movie. And now the film is going to add The Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal. There are also a few more plot details being revealed. Check out the full story below.

The Fault in Our Stars Movie Review Banner
The Fault in Our Stars
Director: Josh Boone
Screenwriters: Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber
Cast: Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Mike Birbiglia, Laura Dern, Nat Wolff, Sam Trammell
20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 126 Minutes
Release Date: June 6, 2013

“I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugarcoat it. When nothing is too messed up that can’t be fixed by a Peter Gabriel song. I like that version as much as the next girl does, it’s just not the truth.”

Directed by Josh Boone (Stuck in Love), The Fault in Our Stars is based on John Green’s 2012 young adult best-seller about two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group. Adapted by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Spectacular Now, (500) Days of Summer), the film stars Shailene Woodley and her Divergent co-star, Ansel Elgort.

At her mother’s behest, 16-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster (Woodley) attends a support group held in a church basement, referred to as “The Literal Heart of Jesus” by their leader Patrick (Mike Birbiglia). Hazel is diagnosed with stage 4 thyroid cancer, which has spread to her lungs. As a result, Hazel drags a portable oxygen tank behind her everywhere she goes.
