As a publication which obsesses over pop-culture, it’s part of our M.O. to explain exactly why y’all should get excited about the news we bring you. We understand that every shred of context adds to the efficacy of our content.
That being said, there’s only one sentence this article needs: the first trailer for Edgar Wright’s new heist film Baby Driver has just dropped. No more. No less. If that sentence doesn’t get you hyped to hell and back, we quite simply don’t know what to tell you.
Well… That’s a lie, ’cause there are a fair few facts to add to the overall excellence of this news.
Wright, perhaps best known for his work on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and the fabled Cornetto Trilogy of Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End, has enlisted Ansel Elgort to play the eponymous Baby – a getaway driver who can’t operate a whip without his tunes.
Badness / dankness ensues, and Baby finds himself wrapped up in a shady underworld populated by Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Eiza González, Jon Bernthal, and a Twin Peaks-lookin’ Lily James.
The flick just debuted at SXSW, and immediate impressions are super goddamn positive. Like you’d even need to catch the whole thing to know that director, that concept, and that cast would deliver an absolute cracker.
There’s no Aussie release date for this one – yet – but we’ll provide you with that precious context when it becomes available.
