A NEED FOR SPEED

The final heist in Baby Driver doesn’t quite go as Doc (Kevin Spacey) drew it up, and when the scheme takes a turn, Baby (Ansel Elgort) has to think as fast as he drives. When the chase  moves through an Atlanta gift shop, the gifted getaway driver becomes a quick-change artist, as he throws on a “Welcome to Atlanta” denim jacket and Atlanta baseball cap to disguise himself (and cover up his telltale black-and-gray jacket, pictured above). Even a pair of busted sunglasses can’t slow him down – and VIP Fan Auctions is also offering fans a chance to own the screen-used specs with the missing lens that Baby wore in the chase of his life. Don’t miss a chance to own a piece of the defining movie of the summer! Click here to see all of the available Baby Driver auctions today!

 

 

BATS, HIT, CRAZY

Doc (Kevin Spacey) never uses the same crew twice in Baby Driver. There are only two constants – getaway driver Baby (Ansel Elgort) will be behind the wheel, and Bats (Jamie Foxx) will be the most menacing and violent member of any crew he’s tapped to be in. Bats makes everyone uncomfortable and he’ll blow away anyone who interferes with his quest to take “his” money. It’s an unforgettable performance by Foxx as the biggest baddie in a movie full of big bads. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Foxx’s equally unforgettable wardrobe from Baby Driver, including his red John Varvatos jacket, red-and-black plaid and leopard-print shirt, fingerless glove (all pictured above), True Religion jeans and Nike high-tops. The screen-worn costume includes production tags and notes – click here for photos and more information. A separate auction includes Bats’ designer Matsuda sunglasses and horseshoe ring, both worn by Jamie Foxx in Baby Driver – click here for photos and to get in on the bidding today!

 

FITS LIKE A GLOVE

There’s a pivotal moment in the hit movie Baby Driver (now in theaters) where the criminal mastermind Doc (Kevin Spacey) gives his young getaway driver, Baby (Ansel Elgort), a pair of red-and-white leather driving gloves for a job well done. There’s an even more pivotal moment when Baby drops the gloves on the ground and walks away. VIP Fan Auctions is offering Baby’s screen-used driving gloves to the fan who casts the winning bid. In addition to the infamous gloves, a paper of Baby’s screen-used sunglasses are also included – so don’t slow down, click here for photos, more information and get in on the bidding for these key pieces of wardrobe from Baby Driver.

Baby Driver is in theaters now and getting exceptional reviews:

An awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking from Edgar Wright that plays out as a musical through the lens of an action thriller. Sweet, funny and utterly original — you won’t see a film like it this year. Read Full Review – Terri White of Empire

Will resonate most with audiences that skew young, hip, and, like its helmer and its hero (the latter played by baby-faced “The Fault in Our Stars” star Ansel Elgort), more than a little obsessive. Read Full ReviewPeter Debruge of Variety

This is the first thriller I’ve seen in a long time that feels handmade. Read Full Review – David Edelstein of Vulture

HOUSE OF CARS

Kevin Spacey’s “Doc” is a criminal mastermind – and bad-guy networker – in Baby Driver. His heists are always meticulously planned, he never uses the same crew more than once, and his young getaway driver/good luck charm is a phenomenon behind the wheel. To paraphrase Ansel Elgort’s “Baby” (and Mike from Monsters, Inc.), nothing is more important than their friendship. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering the distinctive, screen-worn wardrobes of each character, including Elgort’s black-and-grey zipper-front jacket, pants, shirt and shoes (click here, pictured above). Also available is Elgort’s wardrobe from the final caper – which includes the previously mentioned wardrobe in addition to Baby’s gift-shop disguise of a “Welcome to Atlanta” denim jacket and blue “Atlanta” ball cap (click here for photos and more information). One of Spacey’s screen-worn designer suits is also available – his dark grey Hugo Boss jacket and pants, Armani tie, cufflinks and pocket square (pictured above, click here for photos and more information).

Baby Driver Pulls Off Big Stunts

Baby Driver Stunts

More and more today we see increased visual effects in movies to help pull off the biggest stunts. While there is nothing wrong with this – special effects have gotten incredible – there can be a lot of added excitement when we know the stunts are real.

In Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, the entire flick is chock full of real stunt driving, real cars, real locations, and with real people.

It adds a whole new element to this exciting movie. Check out the stunt driving featurette.

You can see for yourself some of the real stunts from the movie, with no rigs, no wires, and no green screen.

You can also see stars from the movie like Ansel Elgort and Jon Hamm practicing stunts on camera.

In addition to Elgort and Hamm, the star-studded cast also features Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jon Bernthal, and Eliza Gonzalez.

Don’t miss Baby Driver, in theaters this June.

 

House of Cards Rumors

houseofcards

The House of Cards rumor mill is in full force as news of the show continues to leak. One of the biggest questions on everyone’s mind is whether or not Frank will make it through the fifth season. Several sources have hinted that Frank might be at the end of his political road, and maybe even the end of his life.

The worst part is that it might even be at the hands of Doug Stamper, Frank’s long time friend and trusted confidant. There is a lot of trust between the two men, which could leave Frank vulnerable to possible sabotage.

And Stamper’s loyalty to Frank could be compromised by his own thirst for power, or possibly his own love of country. I think most fans would agree that Doug is truly a servant of the public. If he felt that Frank was not the best man for the job, Doug would do what he felt was necessary for the good of the American people.

At this point, we simply can’t do more than speculate. What we do know is that House of Cards season 5 is bound to be full of twists and turns like we’ve never seen before.
