Baby Driver just debuted at the SXSW festival for the lucky few who were there and got the chance to see it early (comes out wide on August 11). This is Edgar Wright's long awaited new film he's been wanting to do for 20 years. What makes this puppy extra special is that the titular character, named Baby (yes, really), played by Ansel Elgort, suffers from tinnitus, and constantly listens to music to drown it out. He's a getaway driver who excels at what he does, and the film is cut to the music he listens to.
His boss played by Kevin Spacey promises him he'll be out after one more job.
Rest of the cast is led by Lily James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Flea, etc.
The film is shot by the amazing Bill Pope (who also shot Wright's incredible Scott Pilgrim Vs The World) on 35mm anamorphic, G-series lenses according to set pics. I actually asked Edgar details on the formats as there is some Alexa seen in set pics, and there they are:
"90 percent shot on 35mm anamorphic, some Alexa mini for running shots, some Alexa for night shots, one drone shot!"
Domestic trailer in QT 1080p quality:
International trailer with tons of new footage and with a completely different feel, only available in awful YT quality so far:
