‘Baby Driver’: New Images From Edgar Wright’s Getaway Driver Flick

Baby Driver header image

There are so many reasons why you should be excited for Edgar Wright‘s (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) Baby Driver. The movie centers on a partially deaf getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) who uses music to drown out the ringing in his ears. In the past Wright has used music in such a way where the music beats are perfectly choreographed to each action sequence. So imagine that, but with a car chase sequence.

With the film hitting theaters later this year, we are now getting a very early look at the film in new images that tease more than just a car chase, but also some of the characters, like the very fashionable Jamie Foxx‘s Bats, who is wearing a very killer jacket, and an almost unrecognizable Jon Hamm. Check it out below.

Jon Bernthal

We’ve all heard of the falling out between Edgar Wright and Marvel Studios. And while it may be a slight disappointment that we never got to see Wright’s vision in the MCU, the fallout may have been a blessing in disguise as the director was free to move onto Baby Driver. Early details revealed that the film would be about Baby, a young and talented getaway mute driver who suffers from a chronic ringing in his ears. However, Baby relies on the beat of his own soundtrack. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Kevin Spacey, and Eiza Gonzalez, are all strapped in for the movie. And now the film is going to add The Walking Dead‘s Jon Bernthal. There are also a few more plot details being revealed. Check out the full story below.

Marvel's Ant-Man

Marvel’s Ant-Man
Blu-ray | 3D Blu-ray | DVD
DIRECTOR: Peyton Reed
WRITERS: Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Adam McKay, Paul Rudd
CAST: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Douglas, Michael Peña, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Bobby Cannavale
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment
RELEASE DATE: December 8, 2015

Marvel’s Ant-Man takes a comedic page from its Marvel Cinematic Universe counterpart Guardians Of The Galaxy, and delivers a superhero story that’s appealing to all audiences, even those not interested in capes and cowls.

Paul Rudd stars as Scott Lang, a master thief who’s just finished a three-year stint in San Quentin prison. While his crime was more of the Robin Hood variety, his criminal record is making it very difficult for him to keep a job and make ends meet on the straight and narrow path. Motivated by his desire to be there for his young daughter’s life, Scott joins forces with former prison buddy Luis (Michael Peña) and his crew (Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian) for a sure-thing burglary job. Unbeknownst to Scott, the safe he’s cracking belongs to Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), the S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist who developed the shrinking technology that powers the Ant-Man suit.

What a long, strange trip it has been for Ant-Man, Marvel Studios’ latest entry in their constantly expanding cinematic universe. It had been in development for a decade before it went before the cameras, and by then the director who had been with the project since its inception had long departed due to the dreaded “creative differences.” This has probably been the most difficult baby for Marvel to birth since The Avengers, and when Ant-Man brings Marvel’s Phase Two line-up to a rousing conclusion this weekend, we’ll finally find out if the movie has proven to be worth the wait.

I decided to trace Ant-Man‘s obstacle-fraught journey from the pages of Marvel Comics to the big screen beginning when the visionary British filmmaker Edgar Wright first signed on to develop a live-action feature based on the character. From 2010 onward, the development will be recounted as it was covered by several writers here at Geeks of Doom over the years, myself included.

Marvel's Ant-Man

The ingenious part of Marvel’s Shared Universe is that the marketing team can have fun and find creative ways to market each film, whether it involves the solo ones or the ensemble ones. Their latest effort turns its attention to the upcoming Ant-Man.

But for one of the more obscure heroes of the MCU, how would the marketing team make sure that audiences know that Ant-Man exists in it. Well one way is having him do some tiny cameos on the Avengers’ signature weaponry. Check out some of the cool posters below.
