‘Baby Driver’ Trailer: Find Something Funky On There
I’m excited for Baby Driver. How excited are you, CaffPow?! This fucking excited. I’m not watching this goddamn trailer, because I don’t need every action sequence in the film ruined for me. But! If you need persuading still, check this out.
The best thing about Edgar Wright‘s Baby Driver is that it feels familiar and unique at the same time, a thorough blend of the old and the new. On one hand, it’s constructed out of the building blocks seen in classic crime, heist and car chase movies – it feels like an old friend. But on the other, it energizes those familiar pieces with a style and delivery that is unlike anything else hitting theaters this year – no one breaks into song, but this is pretty much a musical.
I don’t think a trailer can properly sell what makes this one special and why you should go out of your way to see it this summer, but new Baby Driver trailer is here for you to watch anyway.
On paper, you’ve seen Baby Driver before: a talented getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) decides to leave his life of crime behind after “one last job,” but gets pulled back in by a wily criminal mastermind (Kevin Spacey). Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, and Eiza González are on hand as his fellow crooks. Lily James is the love interest who gets sucked into it all.
But this familiar tale is powered entirely by music, driving forward to a dense soundtrack that informs every single scene in the movie.
