Baby Driver Trailer: Edgar Wright's Music-Fueled Heist Film

Jamie Foxx is a character, Kevin Spacey is a character, Jon Hamm.

Edgar Wright has been awfully quiet lately. Four years later, a couple of trailers have now given us our first look at the film. Known for clever action comedies, Wright previously made "Shaun of the Dead", "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" and "The World's End".

Watch the Baby Driver trailer after the jump. Plus, whoever is driving, the chase scenes in the trailer look insane without being Fast and the Furiously cartoonish. "Baby" listens to music nearly constantly - a way to drown out tinnitus, or ringing in his ears - and the movie's high-octane vehicle chases and action sequences are all choreographed to those tracks. Lots and lots of auto chases. That little detail likely means we'll get a good soundtrack to accompany some excellent-looking vehicle chases as Baby tries to get out from the grips of the people who control him.

If the trailers are any indication, it would seem Wright's been itching at giving us some handsome shots with vibrant color palettes and, in the moment Baby and his girlfriend are talking, a shot that just screams "EDGAR WRIGHT NEEDS TO BE DIRECTING EVERYTHING!" It gets genuinely tense and threatening. (Or scathing, depending on whether or not the phrase "Gone in 60 Seconds for the La La Land crowd", is intended as a compliment.) Those of us not helping keep Austin weird and unmanageably crowded this weekend will have to get our Edgar Wright fix from the trailer. However, after being roped in to work for a crime cross, played by Kevin Spacey, "he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love, and freedom".
