Ford v. Ferrari Trailer

"What's it take? "It takes somethin' money can't buy." 20th Century Fox has debuted the first trailer for the new racing historical thriller Ford v. Ferrari, the next film from James Mangold (who last brought us the kick ass Logan in 2017). The film has gone under a few other working titles, including Go Like Hell, but it's officially titled Ford v. Ferrari and hits theaters in November. The film follows an eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby and British driver Ken Miles, who are sent by Henry Ford II and Lee Iacocca with the mission of building from scratch an entirely new automobile with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France. Starring Matt Damon as Shelby, Christian Bale as Miles, with Tracy Letts as Henry Ford II, plus an ensemble cast including Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, JJ Feild, Ray McKinnon, and Remo Girone as Enzo Ferrari. This looks fantastic! Strap in.

Here's the first official trailers (+ poster) for James Mangold's Ford v. Ferrari, direct from YouTube:

And here's an alternate international trailer, retitled Le Mans 66 for release in Europe, from YouTube:

Academy Award-winners Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in Ford v. Ferrari, the remarkable 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. Ford v. Ferrari is directed by American filmmaker James Mangold (follow on Twitter @mang0ld), director of the films Girl, Interrupted, Kate & Leopold, Identity, Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Knight and Day, The Wolverine, and Logan previously The screenplay is written by Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth, Jason Keller, and James Mangold. Produced by Peter Chernin, James Mangold, and Jenno Topping. 20th Century Fox will release Mangold's Ford v. Ferrari in theaters everywhere starting on November 15th this fall. First impression? Look good?

Looks solid. Not sure if I find the story that interesting though.

The book was definitely enjoyable (and I'm not even a "car" guy, per se). I'm actually mostly excited for the story, ha.

"You're going to build a car to beat Ferrari with...a.......Ford." Ha! Perfect line reading! Bale is just fantastic. This looks like a fun movie.

Good actors, possibly a good story and a bit of experienced director. There's some good stuff about this ...

Great cast, great director, but I'm wondering if studio interference switched up the title to lame-a$$ "Ford v Ferrari" from "Go Like Hell". Also, borrowing "v" from B v S because "vs" isn't a thing anymore? I hope this movie does well. Looks like fun.

Man, this looked and came across as just silly. I hated Bale's characterization and didn't think much of Damon's either. I am not a racing fan and could care less about racers themselves. Not much here for me. Still, I can't get over how silly this trailer came across. I remember when this project was first floating around and Michael Mann was involved as the director and pushing to make this. I thought then like I do now...who cares? I'll be interested so see how this does at the box office, but think they've got a tough road to hoe. I sure have no interest in it.

Ken Miles was apparently a tank driver in WW2, pretty sure it was mentioned on the Grand Tour season 1. Will be interested to watch this and Bale looks perfect for the role.

Not a real fan of Carolla, but I hope he gets or takes some credit for this movie happening. His doco (about this rivalry) was really well done and gave this epic story the light it deserved.
