Baby Driver release date United Kingdom, trailer, cast - everything you need to know

Sydney! Win Tickets To The Baby Driver Movie Premiere

The plot of Baby Driver is nothing new: It's the criminal with the heart of gold who wants to escape the underworld life following one final big job, but can't break free from the unsafe people he works for. It's the kind of movie that yanks you out of your sweltering home in 90-degree heat to sit inside with a big ol' thing of popcorn and a Coke and pulls you in so hard that you emerge, fresh-faced, eager to start a life of crime (that, or just listen to "Radar Love" a lot).

That familiarity may be why the movie is better in individual moments than it is as a whole: A giddily romantic scene in a laundromat that feels like a musical number except the "chorus" is a bunch of driers, whirling primary-colored laundry in ideal unison; '60's-style editing that gives "Baby Driver" a jumpy energy; the planning of a bank job where Spacey's voice cuts out, so we can see how Baby takes in information.

Now that this Easter egg is officially out there, it will be up to fans heading into theaters to see Baby Driver to keep a sharp eye out and identify exactly where, when, and how Streep show up in the film. But the boss, Doc (Kevin Spacey), sticks up for him, pointing out that despite some idiosyncrasies, he gets the job done. It's a auto chase for the ages. He wants out. He wants to run away with his new ladyfriend - a diner waitress named Debora (Lily James). It's not computers that generate the fireworks - the stunts are mostly done in camera (kudos to cinematographer Bill Pope), which gives the action a you-are-there urgency that the digiverse can't match. These scenes are a lesson in how to do quick cutting. "Baby Driver" should steal a good chunk of this summer's box office, and deservedly so.

Edgar Wright: "I picked all the songs". When guns start a-blazing, there's a goal behind the characters' reasoning for doing so. Wright is a true man of action, a cinematic grandmaster.

The humour is similarly on point. His late mother was a singer; he now lives with his wheelchair-bound foster father (CJ Jones), who is deaf and speaks to Baby in sign language. He plays the role utterly straight-faced, which makes his lines that much funnier.

"When life starts to sync up with your soundtrack, it's a magical moment", Wright says. This is a screenplay that will be analysed by film students for its joke construction and clever layers for many years.

Baby Driver is wild, violent, often very amusing and hugely inventive. Everyone puts their A-game into this production and not a single part of Edgar Wright's vision has been compromised in bringing it to the screen.

None of those films set the stage for Wright's innovative and entertaining Baby Driver. Audiences who don't see this film on its initial release and then later catch it on video or streaming services will likely regret it. (There were many times during this interview in which Wright would just smile and say, "Your words, not mine.") But Wright will admit he's still frustrated by the time he lost while working on Ant-Man before parting ways with Marvel - and he's right, because it's somehow been four years since we last got an Edgar Wright movie (2013's The World's End).
