Take a first look at Edgar Wright’s new film Baby Driver

Ansel Elgort plays a hotshot getaway driver in the director’s new film.

Little White Lies

It’s been almost four years since an Edgar Wright film last lit up movie screens, but now the director has offered an early sneak peek at his upcoming auto-thriller, Baby Driver. The plot concerns a talented young getaway driver, the eponymous Baby (Ansel Elgort), who uses a specially compiled soundtrack to help him stay ahead of his rivals.

Jamie Foxx, Lily James, Jon Hamm and Kevin Spacey co-star in the British writer/director’s first feature since 2013’s The World’s End and his first Hollywood production since the unfairly maligned Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Oh, and there’s also apparently cameo roles for Flea and Sky Ferreira. These first-look images don’t exactly give much away (which is absolutely fine by us), but they do at least give a sense of the film’s polished visual style and doomed-heist themed narrative.

Baby Driver is released 11 August, 2017.
