A new online edit of all the Baby Driver trailers offers a remixed look at the world and set pieces featured in Edgar Wright’s latest directorial outing. After having proven himself time and time again for over a decade now too, with critically-acclaimed efforts like Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, and The World’s End, Wright’s upcoming car chase thriller looks to be just yet another step up from a filmmaker who’s already cemented a place for himself in the entertainment industry. It comes as little surprise then, to say that Baby Driver has quickly become one of the most-anticipated titles set to hit theaters during this year’s particularly busy summer movie season.
Set during the modern day, the film follows Baby (Ansel Elgort), a getaway driver suffering from tinnitus who uses his own curated musical playlists to drown out the ringing in his ears, and help him orchestrate every single one of his daring escapes behind the wheel. With each scene and moment in the film set and edited to a song, Baby Driver promises to venture into entirely new cinematic territory by combining the musical and action movie genres in a way they never quite have before.
In anticipation of Baby Driver‘s release later this month as well, YouTuber Mark Relm has released a brand new remixed version of all the previously-released Baby Driver trailers. The video itself is similar to what Relm has done before with his beat-driven mashups of films like Harry Potter, Child’s Play, The Dark Knight, and even some titles from Wright’s own filmography. But in this case, Relm’s remixed take on Baby Driver feels particularly fitting for this film. Check it out for yourself in the space above.
In addition to Wright’s credits as both writer and director of the film, Baby Driver also boasts the most star-studded cast of any of his films to date, with Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, and more all set to play major roles in its story. But in case those names weren’t already exciting enough, Baby Driver has managed to make quite a name for itself amongst the hardcore filmgoing community over the past few months.
After making its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX back in March, Baby Driver was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews from all critics and fans who were in attendance. In fact, the early response to the film was so good, that Sony Pictures went ahead and moved Baby Driver‘s premiere up from its originally-intended August release date to a much earlier and more promising late-June debut instead. It’s not often nowadays for a studio to have that much confidence in an original title like this one, so hopefully, that word-of-mouth and confidence will be enough to help Baby Driver have a long-lasting impact this summer, even as it competes with some much more well-known franchises and brand names.
