Baby Driver (June 28)
Target Age: Teens
What's the buzz? Baby Driver is an action-packed crime thriller about a getaway driver. Baby-faced driver Baby (Ansel Elgort) is the fastest and most skilled in the business once he starts blasting music from his headphones. He gets hired by a crime boss (Kevin Spacey) for a series of bank heists with Bats (Jamie Foxx) and Buddy (Jon Hamm). When a heist goes wrong, Baby tries to flee in order to protect both his independence and his girlfriend (Lily James). Not only are the police after him, but so are his criminal partners, who think he's responsible. Expect lots of strong language, gun violence, and extremely dangerous car stunts, as well as racy moments. This one will likely be best for mature teens.
