Edgar Wright's last movie, The World's End, came out four years ago, so needless to say the director's fans are looking forward to his next theatrical outing, Baby Driver. There's still two months to go until the comedy crime film's release, but Sony Pictures is eager to raise anticipation for this wild ride of a story to the maximum levels, so the studio has dropped a new trailer that shows off some of the amazing and crazy-looking driving stunts you can look forward to this summer. Check it out!
In case you missed the first Baby Driver trailer that dropped at the beginning of March, this international trailer does a good job of laying out the basic story in just one minute. More importantly, though, is that the preview provides glimpses of the turbo-charged antics that will literally drive a lot of the movie's action. When he's behind the wheel of any fully-gassed car and his iPod is playing the right song, Baby can pull off incredible feats, like narrowly avoiding spikes on the road dropped by the police, avoiding crashing into a truck in a narrow industrial area or even just smoothly driving backwards. Clearly Edgar Wright (who also wrote the script) and his production team spared no expense when it came to making sure the vehicular stunts in this movie looked incredible.
Baby Driver stars Ansel Elgort as the eponymous character, who had an accident as a kid and plays music almost consistently so he can drown out his "hum in the drum" and make sure he does his job as a getaway driver properly. When Baby meets a special girl, he'll try to escape his life of crime, but when a crime boss forces him to continue his special line of work, he'll have to take part in a heist that could damage everything near and dear to him. The movie's cast also includes Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez, Sky Ferreira and Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It's also rumored that Meryl Streep might appear, going off a tweet that Edgar Wright sent out in January and then deleted. It remains to be seeing out wider audiences will react to Baby Driver, but when the movie premiered at South by Southwest on March 11, it earned near-critical acclaim from those in attendance.
On the off chance this new trailer didn't quite scratch your Baby Driver itch enough, go ahead and watch/re-watch last month's trailer to fix that.
Baby Driver races into theaters on June 28. Don't forget to also check out our 2017 release schedule to find when your other movies anticipated movies of the year are coming out.
