Baby Driver is not your average crime thriller

Edgar Wright reveals why he left Ant-Man Sydney! Win Tickets To The Baby Driver Movie Premiere
Nicole Thomas | 29 June, 2017, 09:04

Now comes Wright's "Baby Driver", a hard-hitting action-comedy-musical named after a Simon & Garfunkel song. Some would say that this will never work. "I said we were straight; did you think we were done?" he asks as Baby tries to beg off a job.

Strap in, buckle up, and let's find out if this film is worth your hard earned ears and summer dollars. During his break between heists he falls for a diner waitress, Debora (Lily James).

With music so important to Baby, it becomes the lifeblood of the film.

A simple plot that has multiple layers sprinkled throughout the film that gives the main three leads depth.

And that music, which serves as the soundtrack for the film, is brilliantly selected and woven into the movie. Amazingly, a lot of them have never appeared in a movie before. "They would let me do stunts when there weren't other actors in the auto", Elgort said. This kid has a certain amount of charm that just meshes well with the surrounding cast. Lily James as Baby's love interest Debora can have some difficulty keeping up with Ansel's performance at times.

Amtrak: 2 people struck on train tracks in Washington
Kimberly Woods, of Amtrak Media Relations, Northeast Regional Train 67 has been stopped due to mechanical issues. Hartford police said the incident occurred prior to Hartford's Union Station in the Windsor Street area.

Baby is an expert wheelman employed by Doc (Kevin Spacey), a shadowy crime king specializing in impossible heists.

With freedom in sight, his cool is cracking, and things really go sideways when he gets paired up with Bats (a manic Jamie Foxx), who is as insane as his name suggests, on a few runs. His tough-looking passengers (Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez and Jon Bernthal) exit with comical menace, assault weapons in hand. Hamm has always been seen as his Don Draper persona of Mad Men. Each film continually grew in scope, adding technical complexities, yet staying completely engrossing and entertaining with wonderfully eccentric characters.

"I got to do a little bit [of driving]". The movie is basically overflowing with musical numbers, but is Baby Driver a musical? So Edgar Wright has his work cut out for him: Baby Driver is wall-to-wall music. He's also smart enough to lay back in the scenes created to let his famous co-stars flex - they're capturing the jittery intensity of people with "nasal difficulties" trying to top and out-badass each other, and just as the character knows to let them growl and bark, so does the actor. Through that relationship, we learn a little more about Baby: his parents died in an auto accident (he was in the vehicle, too), which still haunts Baby, and he listens to music constantly to help his permanent tinnitus. Yeah, yeah, you've seen plenty of movies where cars zoom around and occasionally crash into each other.

"The way he gets his music is because he steals iPods because he steals cars, and when you steal a auto, you might steal an iPod too", he explains. There were many times that my jaw dropped as Baby would narrowly escape, but looked so fucking cool doing it.

Our marketing folks worked with the studio to produce a mocked-up AJC that Baby reads in an early scene, and a particularly daring move was filmed at our old digs in downtown Atlanta, the paper's former loading docks area at 72 Marietta St., which now houses Gallery 72 and the city of Atlanta's Department of Watershed Management.
