Are you one of those people who has read the ecstatic reviews for Baby Driver, and who is aware that it boasts a stellar cast — which includes Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Jon Bernthal, Lily James, and Ansel Elgort — but is still on the fence about actually seeing director Edgar Wright’s crime-thriller? Would it help if you could watch the film’s first six minutes? Because now you can, thanks to Sony, which has just posted the opening Jon Spencer Blues Explosion-soundtracked car chase on YouTube.
Baby Driver stars Elgort as the titular tinnitus-stricken getaway driver, Spacey as the crime boss who employs him, and James as the waitress with whom Baby falls in love. “Baby is the getaway driver for this group of criminals,” says Elgort. “He works for Doc, Kevin Spacey’s character, doing the getaway-driving for heists. You learn that when he was 7, he was in a really bad car accident, and both his parents died, but he also got tinnitus in his ear. So because of that, he has to listen to music all the time to drown out the noise in his ears.”
