Kevin Spacey takes on the role of a crime boss in Baby Driver, a film which spent 10 years in the pipeline before finally being released this year.
The action film follows Baby, a young getaway driver who is reluctantly coerced to work for a veteran kingpin (Spacey) in exchange for a better start in life.
Baby Driver, a British and American produced-film, has received critical acclaim, with a 97 per cent fresh rating on movie review site Rotten Tomatoes.
One review proclaims the film is ‘stylish, exciting, and fuelled by a killer soundtrack’.
It adds: “Baby Driver hits the road and it’s gone – proving fast-paced action movies can be smartly written without sacrificing thrills.”
Ansel Elgort, who made his film debut in 2013 in a remake of Stephen King’s novel Carrie, takes on the role of Baby.
But Spacey is the film’s big name, having won two Academy Awards, including best actor for American Beauty.
Since 2013 he has played the lead role of Frank Underwood in Netflix’s House Of Cards, a series he also produces.
Jamie Foxx, whose Academy Award came for his role in the biographical film Ray, also stars in Baby Driver as a member of the bank robbing crew.
Director Edgar Wright said he first got the idea for the film in 1994, but he adapted the planned beginning into a music video for Mint Royale in 2003.
He said he later kicked himself when the video proved to be unexpectedly popular.
The Mercury has teamed up with the Weston-super-Mare Odeon cinema, in The Centre, to offer three pairs of tickets to the film.
Usual Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final. The competition closes at 10am on July 14.
