(L-R) Ansel Elgort, Jamie Foxx, Eiza Gonzalez, and Jon Hamm in ‘Baby Driver’
South by Southwest Conference & Festival showcases a lot of movies along with the discussions about tech stuff and digital trends. But the burgeoning popularity of the festival has made it a launchpad of movies that are considered to be received well in the geek community (for the lack of better word). It’s not Comic-Con, it’s not CES Vegas or Mobile Congress in Barcelona. It’s SXSW in Austin, Texas.
One of the movies to bring their first trailer at the festival was Edgar Wright’s directorial venture Baby Driver.
Starring Ansel Elgort as the titular character and Lily James as his love interest Deborah, the movie features popular actors Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, and Jon Bernthal in pivotal roles.
Baby Driver is directed by Edgar Wright who was sort of away from the scene after his 2013 movie, last part of Cornetto Trilogy, The World’s End. But during this hiatus, he wrote the story and screenplay for Marvel’s Ant-Man in collaboration with Adam McKay and Joe Cornish.
The movie will tell the story of Baby, a young getaway driver who is capable manoeuvringing the vehicle in tough situations based on the beats of the music he is listening to. This makes him best in the game. His meeting with Deborah changes him and he decides to do away with the criminal life. One last heist for the crime boss Doc goes horribly wrong and now his freedom, life, and love has to face the music.

The plot suggests that the soundtrack for the movie will be interesting to dive into. Baby Driver will release on August 11
