Follow Along With a Map of BABY DRIVER’s Opening Chase

We doubt anyone would deny that Baby Driver is one of the most stylish and exhilarating movies that’s come out in recent years. The film, written and directed by Edgar Wright, has taken the world by storm with its action sequences and downright crazy car chases. One such chase, through the streets of Atlanta, GA, was cleverly mapped out in a recent video by Vox.

What’s surprising about the video above is how–let’s say–accurate the chase is to the streets of Atlanta. There are a few jumps here and there but the route in which the chase takes place could work in real life. It all starts at the Candler Building with Baby rocking out to the opening notes of “Bellbottoms” by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and winds through the streets of downtown Atlanta with police in hot pursuit. There are some longer jumps in distance in order to get Baby and his bank-robbing crew onto the highway but there’s very little backtracking or use of locations that don’t make sense to the chase itself.

It’s good to see that Wright and company filmed Atlanta–for the most part–as it’s actually laid out. There are far too many movies that either don’t seem to care or take too many liberties with geography that can strike an viewer as odd if they know the place where its filmed. (We’re looking at you, Cleveland streets and landmarks in Spider-Man 3!)

What do you think of Vox’s chase mapping? Was the first one in Baby Driver your favorite? What other movie chases would you want to see mapped out? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
