It was back in 2014 when I first caught actor and stuntman R Marcos Taylor in Tony Clomax’s action short, Broken Angels. Needless to say, Taylor’s credits in film and TV date back further in a series of achievements that have seen him ascend more politically as an actor having debuted to award-winning status with the independent martial arts comedy, Paying Mr. McGetty, as well as co-starring roles in F. Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton and this summer’s release, Baby Driver.
Already beholden to a number of positive reviews following its SXSW premiere this Spring, Edgar Wright’s latest, Baby Driver, is finally off to a June 28 theatrical release, and with a promotional campaign running virbrantly with a few trailers. Speaking of, of course, a brand new trailer is here and centrally themed on the soundtrack – a fitting tribute given the film’s premise about a young and talented getaway driver whose goals away from a life of crime are hindered when he’s pulled into a job that’s doomed to fail.
A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
