Baby Driver revs up to huge applause at SXSW premiere

Baby Driver revs up to huge applause at SXSW premiere

The genre favorite finished off the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy on a high note with "The World's End" in summer 2013, but we haven't gotten a new film since (and yes, Marvel is partly to blame because of that whole "Ant Man" debacle).

Thankfully, that's about to change, as the filmmaker's new effort, Baby Driver, is gearing up to ride into theaters this August, with an impressive cast in tow. "Baby" listens to music nearly constantly - a way to drown out tinnitus, or ringing in his ears - and the movie's high-octane auto chases and action sequences are all choreographed to those tracks.

Here's the synopsis: 'A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game.

If the trailers are any indication, it would seem Wright's been itching at giving us some attractive 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!"

The vehicle chases in particular look fantastic, and Elgort could very well steal the show in what appears to be a great role for the young actor. He added, "It's something that's very much a part of my previous films and I thought of this idea of how to take that a stage further by having a character who listens to music the entire time".

The two-and-a-half minute clip offers an exciting peek into the crime action-drama, which comes complete with auto chases, gun toting, and a killer soundtrack.

Here's an global version of the trailer which has some even better scenes and a less serious tone.

Joining Elgort is an impressive cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Lily James, and Kevin Spacey as a snarky crime boss.
