First Trailer for Edgar Wright's Baby Driver Finally Arrives
After what feels like a year of waiting, Sony has finally dropped the first trailer for Edgar Wright's highly-anticipated action flick "Baby Driver," but as we can clearly see, it was well worth the wait.
With an all-star cast that includes Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, and Ansel Elgort, the film follows a young getaway driver that finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail after being coerced into working for a crime boss.
With Wright's incredible track record, which includes films like "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," "Shaun of the Dead," and "Hot Fuzz," it seems safe to assume that we'll be in for another fun flick, and from this incredible trailer, it looks like it will be packed with plenty of impressive action sequences.
While the film doesn't have its wide release until later this year, a few lucky folks got to catch the flick this evening at the SWSW festival, so hopefully we'll be hearing if Wright has another hit on his hands soon enough, but, again, given the love for his previous work, it doesn't seem likely that he'd let his fans down now.
Sadly, most of us will have to wait until its US release date of August 11th to see it for ourselves, which seems like ages away. We'll just have to be very, very patient until then.
