CinemaCon 2017 - Sony Moves Edgar Wright's 'Baby Driver' to June

The studio made the new release date announcement during their opening night presentation at the 2017 CinemaCon at Caesars Place in Las Vegas. Sony's president of worldwide distribution Rory Bruer also showed off the first six minutes of "Baby Driver" at the event. Baby Driver was shot on real locations with the idea of showing dream/nightmare scenarios of being in a auto chase.

Baby Driver is unlike anything you've ever seen - a rip-roaring Walter Hill homage that takes 40 years' worth of action picture grammar, places it in a blender, and then adds a healthy spike of pop music bliss. Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx co-star as two of Baby's criminal co-workers, Kevin Spacey as their (crime) boss, and Lily James as the waitress for whom Baby is willing to leave it all behind.

As per Screen Rant, the creation of "Baby Driver" goes a number of years back, according to Edgar Wright.

This new release date will see the movie opening up against Universal's Despicable Me 3, while hoping to fend off competition in Transformers: The Last Knight, which is released the week before. "Whenever we were filming, I always had the earbuds in and was listening to the music", said Elgort.

Airline electronics ban: What you need to know
Airlines will be responsible for policing the cabin ban, and if they fail to do so could lose their rights to operate USA routes. The U.K. ban applies to six countries, while the US ban applies to 10 airports in eight Muslim-majority countries.

The heist film - already noted for its eclectic soundtrack from SXSW audiences - centers around "a talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game".

Baby Driver stars Ansel Elgort (The Fault in our Stars) as a gifted getaway driver who suffers from tinnitus - ringing in his ears - and has to play music on an iPod to concentrate when he is behind the wheel.

Baby Driver is set to hit theaters June 28.
