This Summer, Baby Driver became somewhat of a surprise cultural smash. Packing in high-octane thrills and car chases with a truly exceptional soundtrack, the film earned nearly a quarter billion at the box office and landed an impressive 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Suffice it to say, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t want a sequel. Luckily for all of us, the wheels began turning quite a while ago to deliver us more Baby. Here’s what we’ve heard.
1. Sony Has Reportedly Wanted a Sequel For a While
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony approached director Edgar Wright for a sequel shortly after the movie opened. It helped that the filmed earned nearly $ 30 million in its first weekend at the box office, nearly recuperating the entire estimated budget of $ 34 million. Also, I mean, it boasts a treasure trove of positive reviews and even praise from other iconic filmmakers (like, for example, John Waters). A sequel was always a no-brainer.
2. Director Edgar Wright Already Has an Idea in Mind
Back in July, Wright already had an idea for a second film. On an episode of The Empire Film Podcast, he gave his pitch. «I think there’s somewhere more to go with it in terms of the characters. Baby has got to a new place,» he said. «Most sequels you have to contrive something so they go back to square one, unless there’s somewhere deeper for them to go. I think with Baby Driver there’s more that you can do in that realm, and I sort of have an idea that if you did another [film] you would subvert his involvement in the crime in a different way so he’s not the apprentice anymore.» Yesss, Edgar Wright! Subvert that sh*t!
3. Wright Expects to Write the Film, at the Very Least
By December 2017, Wright confirmed that he and Sony were in talks about a sequel. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said, «The deal is being hammered out as we speak. So, hopefully, I’m going to at least write a second one. I’ve definitely got lots of ideas.»
4. It Could Come Out in the Next 2 or So Years
Wright told EW that he’d really like to release another movie in the next two years. He did admit that he might have a couple of other projects in the works, so the Baby Driver sequel isn’t necessarily the next film on his slate. But hey, if he can come to an agreement with Sony, there’s still a chance he could bump this project to the top. And that means we could potentially see it on screen by the end of 2019!
“Haunted“ (*eye-roll*) documentary star Chris Brown was obviously never given the memo reading A) never give a pet as a gift and B) never give a wild animal as a pet as a gift. Chris posted a clip on Instagram of his 3-year-old daughter Royalty cuddling with her early Christmas present – a baby marmoset monkey.
In the clip (via Metro UK), Chris asks Royalty if the monkey (whose name isn’t revealed) is “her baby.”
Royalty and the monkey are an adorable pair, but some feel that Chris made the wrong move in giving a child a gift from the wild that flings its own feces. They’re calling him out online.
‘So sad, this baby monkey should be with its mother,’ wrote one fan, while another blasted Brown by writing: ‘You are as thick and ignorant as they come!!!
People were really on the monkey mom’s side.
Another comment read: ‘Why? Why taking a little baby monkey away from it’s mother? This is a wild animal!
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in the UK states that owning a marmoset isn’t illegal, but it’s probably not a good idea to raise it in an L.A. mansion
where drugs are thrown out of windows and handguns abound.
‘They are wild animals that have very specific welfare needs,’ their brief reads. ‘It is impossible to provide an environment as complex and rich as the wild for a marmoset kept as a pet. ‘They are tropical animals who require a warm climate.’
Hopefully, Royalty isn’t too sad when the monkey realizes he lives with Chris Brown and makes a break for it, diaper and all. Maybe she’ll be distracted from the monkey’s absence by her disgust over Daddy collaborating with underage piss cult head R. Kelly in 2017. (He must have reasoned, “Well, if sexual assault survivor Gaga is ok with him…”)
Talk about a musical match made in heaven! Idina Menzel and Michael Bublé teamed up for a sweet holiday duet in 2014, singing «Baby, It’s Cold Outside» for Menzel’s album Holiday Wishes. The song, of course, is great, thanks to the pair’s awesome vocals, and the music video truly couldn’t be cuter. Along with Menzel and Bublé, it also stars two adorable kids with some seriously impressive lip-sync skills. Get in the festive spirit with a look at the timeless music video above!
Chrissy Teigen is glowing! The swimsuit model and wife of John Legend flaunted her growing baby bump in a long-sleeved black dress on Instagram, writing, «Aloha, bebe.» Last month, Chrissy announced her second pregnancy with some help from her 1-year-old daughter, Luna. «What’s in here?» Chrissy says in the clip, pointing to her stomach. «Baby!» Luna adorably replies. The exciting news capped off what has been a fun and romance-filled year for John and Chrissy. Keep reading to see another snap Chrissy shared of her bump, then check out why we can’t get enough of her maternity style.
Jason Aldean is a dad again! The country star and his wife Brittany Kerr welcomed their first son, Memphis Aldean, into the world on Friday. «So blessed today to see my little man come into the world,» Jason captioned a sweet photo of his newest bundle of joy. «In a year that has been a rollercoaster ride, this is what its all about,» he wrote referring to the tragic Las Vegas shooting that took place at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in October while he was performing on stage.
«I cant wait to see what life has in store for this kid,» he added. Jason also confirmed Memphis weighed in at 9 pounds, 5 ounces and referred to his wife as a «rockstar» during the delivery. The singer has two daughters from his previous marriage, but it marks the first child for Brittany who hilariously thanked her husband for «enduring all the hand squeezing and nail digging.» Congrats to Jason and Brittany!
Ah, babies. The perfect talking point. There will be no awkward or uncomfortable silences at Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s holiday dinner tomorrow. The second someone begins a potentially bad conversation (“Here’s what the government doesn’t want you to know about chemtrails…“), Chrissy can just whip out a picture of her ultrasound. And if that fails, I guess they could just send the dog out in a turkey costume.
But I doubt it will get that bleak, because this baby news is still new enough to keep everyone interested.
Yesterday, Chrissy (with help from 19-month-old Luna) announced on Instagram she was knocked up with John Legend’s second baby.
According to People, John responded to her declaration that “It’s Johns!” by commenting: “Maury will have the final word on this.” I’m sure a joke about a paternity test will go over real well with some of Chrissy’s more (ahem) concerned followers. She’s probably drafting up a carefully-worded response on Twitter, that will most likely read “The results are in, go fuck yourselves.”
It’s not known how far along Chrissy is, when she’s due, or if they once again chose what this one will be. But it sounds like it might probably be a boy.
Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah.

It also sounds like they’ve been thinking about it for a while. A source tells People:
“They have been planning for this for a long time. Chrissy is really excited to finally share the news.”
Another source says: “They are so excited to make Luna a big sister. They think Luna will do a great job with the baby and they’re really happy to be expanding their family.” Chrissy recently Snapchatted a picture of what her stomach currently looks like, and yeah, she’s definitely pregnant. However, I’m a little confused. People says they spoke to John Legend just last Friday, saying that they were “working on” their second baby and that “hopefully it will be soon.” Soon? Um…either John was being deliberately vague and misleading, or he and Chrissy have the power to materialize miracles with sheer hope in an insanely tight time frame. If it’s the second one, then can John or Chrissy hope for me to find several million dollars soon?
Bob’s Burgers on Fox at 7:30pm ET.
Outlander on Starz at 8:00pm ET.
Poldark on PBS at 9:00pm ET. Third season finale. One of my favorite parts of Sunday evening is everyone talking about how terrible the Poldark guy is to his wife and also everyone, but he does seem to have an affinity for threshing wheat shirtless so I guess all is forgiven.
Search Party on TBS at 10:00pm ET. One-hour second season premiere.
SMILF on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. I’ve heard some really good things about this show. I don’t get Showtime but for those of you who do and enjoy the slice of life «finding humor in things that shouldn’t be funny» kinds of shows this seems like a good addition to the genre.
Six months have passed since Miranda Kerr married Snapchat billionaire Evan Spiegel in a shamefully understated ceremony for a billionaire. Miranda and Evan admitted they were waiting to have sex with each other until after they were hitched. For anyone who needed confirmation that it actually happened, here you go: Miranda is pregnant.
A rep confirmed the news to E! News today in a very nondescript way:
“Miranda, Evan and Flynn are looking forward to welcoming the newest member of their family.”
This will be 34-year-old Miranda’s second child (she shares 6-year-old Flynn with Orlando Bloom), and 27-year-old Evan’s first kid. A source tells E! News that Miranda has always wanted more children, and that she “can’t wait to give Flynn a sibling.” And things are going well between Miranda and Billionaire Evan.
“Miranda and Evan are doing well as a couple. They have a good balance together.”
It’s not known how far along Miranda is or when she’s due. What we do know is that Evan looks like off-brand Andrew Garfield got in a fight with Andy Murray. So my guess is whenever their baby arrives, it will look like that, but with two giant apple cheeks.
Evan made billions from Snapchat, so it feels a little weird that their pregnancy announcement was done though a boring ol’ spokesperson. Could Evan not have had his team of tech nerds create a filter that made Miranda look like she was holding a cartoon pee stick as a bunch of digital balloons fell behind her? Not only is that a missed opportunity for them, but for the entire Snapchat user base. You know there’s at least a dozen basics out there who dream of one day announcing they’re knocked up on Snapchat with a cartoon pregnancy test and puppy dog ears.
Kim Kardashian is ready for baby number three. The 37-year-old reality star, who is reportedly expecting a baby girl via surrogate next month, threw a «tea for three»-themed baby shower on Saturday. «OK, guys, my baby shower for baby number three,» Kim said in a Snapchat video documenting the event. «It’s just a tea for three with cherry blossom forest. It’s so pretty.»
Kim’s celebrity party guests, including model Chrissy Tiegen and celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin, were treated to high tea and fun finger foods such as pink doughnuts, cake, and macarons. Kris, Kendall, Kylie, and Khloé were also in attendance, although the latter two showed no signs of their growing baby bumps in any of the photos from the fancy affair.
Twenty-year-old Kylie is reportedly expecting her first child, a baby girl, with her boyfriend, Travis Scott, in January, and big sister Khloé is also reportedly pregnant with her first child, a baby boy, with her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. The Kardashians will definitely have a lot to celebrate in 2018. Scroll through to see more photos from Kim’s glamorous baby shower ahead.
