“Shop! Let’s talk it.” Rejoice. Edgar Wright is back, at long last, with a heist drama, Oscar winners Kevin Spacey, Jamie Fox and some younger, prettier faces. And while I’m not generally a big ‘car stunt’ guy, the vehicle work here looks like a lot of fun, and not as CGI as is typical these days.
Having just had its premiere screening at SXSW last night, the ‘one last job’ action picture gets a couple of trailers (above is the International flavour) to merely whet the palette, as Sony Pictures just pushed the film from March to August 2017.
A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. 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.
Resident culture snob.
