Edgar Wright Finally Explains Why He Stopped Directing 'Ant-Man'

The Baby Driver team reunite in London

Ansel Elgort can do everything. Also, I felt the epilogue was a odd combination of realistic and unrealistic - not quite the euphoric air-punching finale I was hoping for after two hours of build-up. Behind the wheel is Baby (Ansel Elgort), a young man who doesn't look old enough to drive.

As I sat down to watch Baby Driver, something occurred to me? even though I'm a big fan of Edgar Wright, each of his films has, in my opinion, been weaker than the last.

What initially attracted you to Baby Driver? So if you're not fully hooked within the first five minutes, give this excellent film just a little longer to win you over. The heist film, which should be a hot ticket over the July Fourth weekend (it's 100 percent fresh on the Rotten Tomatoes site), also stars Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Lily James and Eiza Gonzalez. In the upcoming action-packed heist film, the actor-musician plays the titular getaway driver named Baby who drives to the beat of pulsating music, so as to drown out the "humming" in his ears (tinnitus) that stemmed from a childhood accident.

Everyone in Elgort's accomplished family has a high-profile arts career - his father, for example, is famed fashion photographer Arthur Elgort - so celebrity is familiar, apparently neither carrot nor stick. "I just burned off a great idea on this music video", said Wright. Wright takes the "no honour among thieves" credo to its logical, lethal, and fatal extremes, and whenever Baby Driver needs to take a turn for the serious, no amount of fun, investment, or tension is lost because the characters are constantly moving and evolving throughout. I did four or five stunts.

He underwent lessons with a teacher to learn the language, while his deaf co-star CJ Jones also gave him a hand. It's one of a couple of things that I'm developing.

"Also, I drove so much in "Grand Theft Auto" that I feel like I already knew how to do all the drifting, and I already knew how to get away from a cop."
So they didn't have to worry about Lily being there. While I'd say it got me into the swing of things nicely, I'd have to disagree; the best is yet to come. The things I learned from Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx...

More news: Trump publicly acknowledges Russia probe includes him

Director Edgar Wright, known for hilarious Simon Pegg collaborations including "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz", enters Danny Boyle and Guy Ritchie territory, with a dose of Ben Wheatley (the warehouse shootout is pure "Free Fire"), while managing to avoid the overt violence and gore of Tarantino.

At any point during filming, did you ever say to yourself, "What have I gotten myself into?" But I didn't know that song too well yet, so eventually Edgar said, 'Hey, what song do you know that you think can vibe out to?' And I thought of the Commodores, and it did really help me.

So it's fitting that the movie was essentially born from a single song. What's amusing is that some people say, "Oh, this film's a departure for you", but it's actually the oldest idea I've had, in a sense.
