Edgar Wright's Baby Driver, first-look review at SXSW

First Baby Trailer Arrives After SXSW Debut

This might be the first thing you're hearing about Baby Driver, Edgar Wright's first film in four years.

Baby Driver opens on August 11.

"Baby Driver", which also stars Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx and Eiza González, opens August 11.

Though it's still a ways away from hitting theaters, the pic made its debut at the South by Southwest festival tonight and to drum up some hype, the first trailer has been released online, giving us a look at what seems to be another inventive and exciting piece of work from Edgar Wright.

The two-and-a-half minute clip offers an exciting peek into the crime action-drama, which comes complete with vehicle chases, gun toting, and a killer soundtrack.

Baby Driver is, as Wright told Empire recently, something of a minor departure for the British filmmaker: unlike previous fare like Shaun Of The Dead or Hot Fuzz this is not strictly a comedy. It's amusing in places but it's not a comedy.

August can not come soon enough, because we need to see this film! "When I started actually writing it I had ideas for set pieces, so just through listening to my record collection I would visualize themes and then when I wrote the rest of the script I wouldn't write the scene until I found the right track".

Ansel Elgort drives getaway cars and Jon Hamm plays a psychopathic bank robber in "Baby Driver", already one of 2017's big-screen highlights.

Check out the first trailer (and an worldwide version) below, along with the poster. Facing a chance to ditch the criminal life for good, the character gets coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey) on a heist that puts his entire future into doubt.
