The movie is about the remarkable competition between Ford and Ferrari, it is directed by James Mangold (Logan), and it will tell you the Hollywood version of that epic story. And you know what? It looks damn magnificent!
The first trailer for Ford v Ferrari has dropped and this is going to be one hell of a wild high octane ride! The movie stars Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby and Christian Bale will be taking on the role of race car driver Ken Miles. Both actors are a perfect fit for the roles they play in the story! They are joined by Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, and Ray McKinnon.
The film tells the extraordinary true story of the “visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the fearless British driver Ken Miles (Bale), who together battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.”
Bale said, “This is David vs. Goliath vs. Goliath. You’ve got the industrial Goliath with Ford and the charismatic Goliath of reputation with Ferrari, and then this true story of the triumph of the misfits.”
The movie will hit theaters on November 15th.
