Sony Pictures’ Baby Driver is coming to Blu-ray, 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray, and DVD on October 10, 2017. The film, earning over $100M at the US box office, stars Ansel Elgort as expert driver “Baby” who is forced to work for a crime syndicate. The movie also stars Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm and Kevin Spacey.
The Blu-ray (1080p) edition of Baby Driver doesn’t pack a DVD copy like traditional combo editions, but does include a Digital HD copy. However, the 2-disc Ultra HD Blu-ray edition includes a Blu-ray and Digital Copy along with the 4k Blu-ray disc.
Extra bonus material on the Blu-ray releases of Baby Driver is quite extensive, with 20 minutes of deleted and extended scenes, director and filmmaker commentary, a storyboard gallery, video, and lots of production featurettes (see below for details).
The Ultra HD Blu-ray edition of Baby Driver is presented in 2160p using HEVC H.265 video encoding. We’re still waiting on confirmation of audio formats on the Blu-ray editions.
Baby Driver on Blu-ray is priced $19.96, while the Ultra HD Blu-ray edition is priced $29.99 (see below for most recent pricing from Amazon).
Best Buy is also selling an exclusive Steelbook edition of Baby Driver that features custom artwork on the cover (see below for art). That Steelbook edition is selling for $31.99.
