Baby Driver Home Video Announcement

“Baby Driver” Races onto Home Video on October 10

Ever since I was lucky enough to be one of the people to see the world premiere of Baby Driver back in March, not a day goes by that I haven't thought about it, or at least its incredible soundtrack.

On October 10, I'll finally be able to own it. That's when Sony Pictures will release Edgar Wright's latest film onto DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD. Baby Driver was one of the surprise hits of the summer, earning more than $100 million despite being a totally original screenplay from a director who had never had a success on this scale. With an excellent cast and, as I mentioned, an amazing soundtrack, it's one of my favorite films of the year.

The Blu-ray disc is packed with bonus features, including more than 20 minutes of deleted and extended scenes, documentaries on the soundtrack and the stunts, and the video for Mint Royale's "Blue Car," a 2003 music video Wright directed that inspired the film.

If you just can't wait, you can rent or buy a Digital HD version on September 12.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
