Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Edgar Wright's Baby Driver is in theatres July 13, and hopefully you are planning to see it. We recommend that. And afterwards, maybe you'll be curious to know the real story behind arguably the film's biggest laugh. We have you covered.

While you can easily see the homages to zombie horror and paranoid sci-fi in Shaun of the Dead and World's End, the fusion at the heart of Baby Driver's DNA is initially more elusive to parse. But once you put sunglasses on and deconstruct it, it's right there: The new movie is a musical where car chases are the "songs". And it rocks.
