Edgar Wright Thrilled With Baby Driver’s Success For Altruistic Reasons

Posted by August 14, 2017 Comment

As Baby Driver crossed the $100 million threshold this weekend, the film, made on a budget of just $34 million, is an indisputable success. Naturally, writer and director Edgar Wright has a lot of reasons to be happy about that. Over 100 million of them, in fact. But according to Wright, he has another reason to be pleased with the film’s success:

What a guy! Even more remarkable than Baby Driver’s success in a franchise-heavy summer, it’s also finding an audience in a franchise-heavy summer where a lot of movies are tanking. We recently saw Chinese investors scold Paramount execs over making so many box office bombs, and AMC Theaters take a massive hit to earnings.

Doesn’t that make Baby Driver’s success all the more impressive? Sure, but Edgar Wright is far too humble a man for that kind of bragging.

Baby Driver remains in theaters, in case you want to contribute to the success of an original movie in a franchise-heavy summer by going to see it, or see it again, yourself.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
