Baby Driver took SXSW by storm this past March, earning such high praise (it’s currently sitting at a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, with 22 reviews in) that distributor Sony was inspired to bump its release up from a sleepy August weekend to a prime June spot.
But we didn’t know any of that was going to happen in April 2016, when the studio invited us to visit the film’s Atlanta set. All we knew at that time was that Baby Driver was the new Edgar Wright movie – and considering his track record, that in itself felt like reason enough to get excited. And what we learned on set rocketed the film to the top of our most-anticipated list.

What I find most intriguing about Baby Driver is that the barebones synopsis sounds like something we’ve seen a hundred times before: a talented getaway driver meets a girl, decides to leave his life of crime behind, and gets sucked into a job that puts everything on the line. The key difference is that this is the latest film from Edgar Wright, a filmmaker whose name alone was enough to get this movie in the number one spot on my most anticipated movies of 2017 list. Look, making Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World ensures that you get on top of a lot of lists.
So yeah, let’s check out three new photos from the film, which should help tide us over until a trailer arrives.

At the end of last week we saw the first official still image from From Dusk Till Dawn — that’s the new TV series that remakes and expands the film by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. Now we’ve got the first trailer for the series, which also comes from Rodriguez. It stars D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz as criminal brothers Seth and Richie Gecko, who run across vampires such as the one above, played by Eiza Gonzalez. (She’s got the role once played by Salma Hayek.)
The show also features Don Johnson, Wilmer Valderrama and Robert Patrick as it presents the “novel version” (in Rodriguez’s words) of the short story originally plotted out in the film. See the trailer below. Read More »
