Baby Driver is my most anticipated film of the summer. It’s Edgar Wright’s first film since 2013’s The World’s End, it has an outstanding premise—the movie is set to the music its protagonist, Baby, listens to in order to drown a hearing impairment—and it’s set in my hometown of Atlanta. While Atlanta has become a popular place to film movies thanks to Georgia’s generous tax incentives, it usually doesn’t get to play itself. Wright, once he knew he was going to film in Atlanta, rewrote the movie to take advantage of the setting, and I can’t wait to see how he films the city.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of Baby Driver. To enter for a chance to see the movie early and for free, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “BABY DRIVER”. The screening is on Wednesday, June 21st at 7pm at Regal Perimeter Pointe, so please don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Multiple entries from a single person will disqualify all entries from that person.
Check out the trailer for Baby Driver below. The film opens June 28th and stars Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, and Jamie Foxx.
Here’s the official synopsis for Baby Driver:
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 (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
