I'm pretty much alone here screaming "GENIUS" everytime Edgar releases something, but here it goes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9YZw_X5UzQ

First review (the movie juste premiered at SXSW):

Quote
There has never been a movie that feels quite like Baby Driver: a violent action movie with the soul of a musical, a car chase extravaganza whose hero extols the virtues of being decent, and a loving homage to a genre that feels happy to coexist with its peers rather than mock them. This movie is a miracle. Hell, itís an Edgar Wright movie.
Full review: http://www.slashfilm.com/baby-driver-review

I'm not crazy about the trailer, but the premise + Mr Wright is all I ask. Actually, it's a lie: Wright's name is enough to get me excited, but still, the pitch is something I want to see done by him.

Is this inspired by the Walter Hill film "The Driver"? The lead even looks a bit like Ryan Reynolds.

And more importantly, did I really post the topic in "website announcements"?

Ok so I meant Ryan O'Neal of course.


Thanks for sharing.

Yep, I've seen it the day after. It's much better!

By the way, as someone already noted, we can already see that Wright's love for visual symbolism isn't weakening. The most obvious exemple from these trailers being the use of circles:

+ triple circular dolly shot around the round table

Have ever seen any of Wright's previous work?

If the answer is "no", this is a good introduction to his style: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FOzD4Sfgag
About his use of recurring visual elements, the most famous example are the hidden "X" (that stand for "evil EXES") in Scott Pilgrim vs The World: http://mcmoviereveiws.weebly.com/blog/movie-blog-test-the-hidden-xs-in-scott-pilgrim-vs-the-world

I had never even heard of the guy until you started this thread. I am now extremely interested in his work. Thanks - I'll report back once I get around to watching anything by him  Afro Afro (could be a while as I struggle to find time to watch much of anything these days)

CJ did it. I may create a huge happening in the following days and resurrect the thread in all the board's sections.

No. Scott Pilgrim is a masterpiece, it's very unlikely to be topped.
