Edgar Wright's Baby Driver Gets An Earlier Release Date

Those of us who were left salivating by the hype over Edgar Wright's new movie Baby Driver at SXSW have something to celebrate this morning:Entertainment Weekly reports that this baby will arrive prematurely. With the upcoming action film, Elgort is given a new image that puts him slightly away from the genre he is known for, a skilled driver who suffered an accident as a kid that caused him to utilize headphones and music. Reaction for the trailer has been very positive though, and with Wright's status as a filmmaker, Baby Driver is sure to bring in the audience. The studio announced the news at CinemaCon on Monday, while screening the first six minutes of the movie for theater owners. The film's now sitting at 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, with Variety calling it a blast and The Hollywood Reporter describing it as "a sweet and speed-crazed crime film you can dance to".

Originally set for a release on August 11, now Baby Driver is slated to hit cinemas on June 28. But as a lifelong action film enthusiast, I can honestly say the movie is two hours of pure bliss I cannot wait to revisit with my Drafthouse pals.

According to The Verge, "Baby Driver" hoists up once again the already wonderful career of Ansel Elgort, the lead of the teen drama flick "The Fault in Our Stars", as well as being in the "Divergent" series.

Wright used 35 songs throughout the film, with the cast rehearsing to the music which was played on set.

"It is very real and very exciting to be in a auto that is going the wrong way on a working interstate being driven at 70 miles per hour by a kid from NY who kind of just learned how to drive", the 46-year-old said. However, a doomed heist threatens his life, love, and freedom after he's coerced into working for a mob boss.
