Baby Driver races onto digital September 12 & Blu-ray October 10

The second the first BABY DRIVER trailers started racing onto the web we all knew it would be one of the coolest movies of the year. We, of course, were right on the money, as the movie stands as Edgar Wright’s best-reviewed and highest-grossing (by a long mile) film ever.  Audiences fell in love with the killer soundtrack, endearing romance, and slick action, and now we can all relive the magic in about two weeks when the digital release hits on September 12.

Sony announced the release date yesterday, and those who wish to build their Blu-ray collection like a mighty castle of movie nerddom can buy the Blu-ray on October 10. The box art takes from the movie’s poster and features the main cast, including Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and Eiza González.

Here is the list of special features as well, and they are mighty:

  •     Extended/Deleted Scenes - 20 minutes of extended scenes and a few moments that were dropped from the final cut.

Easily one of the best of the year so far, BABY DRIVER is certainly one I'll be picking up when it hits Blu-ray. I only got to see it once when it was in theaters, and something tells me that is a criminally low amount. There are also so many special features I can't wait to go through, like all the deleted scenes and the featurette detailing the car chases. I am quite positive that even if it came with a copy of the Bible it would still be the coolest home release of the year.

BABY DRIVER arrives on digital September 12 and hits Blu-ray on October 10.
