Roaring Second Trailer for Mangold's 'Ford v Ferrari' Racing Movie
"Ford hates guys like us, because we're different." 20th Century Fox has launched the second official trailer for Ford v. Ferrari, the latest from James Mangold (who last made the kick ass Logan in 2017). This premiered at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals to very positive reviews aplenty, calling it a "visual and sonic spectacle". 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 car 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. All the early festival buzz has been great so far, I can't wait to catch up with this one soon.
Here's the second trailer (+ another poster) for James Mangold's Ford v. Ferrari, from Fox's 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 coming up. Who's ready to watch this?
This will be fun to watch, regardless the fact there's no substance in it ...

Why should I, or anyone for that matter, care if Ford can beat Ferrari in some car race? I guess if you do then this movie is for you. I also thought the banter between Damon and Bale a bit ludicrous and didn't believe it for a second. I huge pass for me. Michael Mann at one point was involved to direct this. Now that would have interested me...maybe....

"Why should anyone care if Ford beat Ferrari... A huge pass from me..." "Oh Michael Mann is directing, now I'm interested!" You seem to find joy in disparaging films which aren't to your tastes, and criticise others for being shallow. Maybe look a little closer to home. Looks like a solid movie. Always interested in what Bale has to offer.

I disagree with your assessments of me 'enjoying disparaging films'. That seems like a bit of a projection on your part. I like what I like and don't like what I don't like and express my reasons. Take it or leave it, but please...the dime store internet chat room analysis? I think it's has more to do with you having a hard time on me not liking films that you like and take it personally. That's my dime store analysis observation...along with I believe you're not up to my standards or knowledge or informed and educated observations regarding film. You might consider either being more respectful and engaging in an intelligent conversation with me or just shut up and not bother me with your immature insecurities and incorrect perceptions about me.

You like Fedoras dont you?

Dumb comment unworthy of my attention. Blocking you and your silliness.

He's not wrong you know. 95 % of the posts you make here are negative.

95% of the movies being made today are trash and junk food for the masses...so yea...your calculations are correct. What's with people on this site? Have they never heard of 'film criticism'? Have they never read the great film critics of the past? It's such a lack of sophistication and knowledge of film it astounds me. Anyway, thanks for your reply and in the positive at least 5% of my posts are liking movies. Not bad in today's movie production, especially American movies. Cheers.

What on earth has comments on movie trailers got to do with 'film criticism'?!?! You are obviously entitled to your opinions. But so am I, in noting that I think you overly negative. I mean its so bad that it actually made my eyes widen when you said something positive recently lol. I forget what movie it was about but I think it was something reminiscent of the 90's.

Your first sentence and question is so ridiculous I'm just going to block you. I can't communicate with that kind of awareness...or lack of it. Good luck to you. If you waste your time responding I won't be notified or see it or be able to read it...which is the delightful purpose of blocking. I do thank you for not being petty and rude and immature, but we are operating on two different levels and that's fine with me...but I'm not interested in yours. Cheers!
thespiritbo on Sep 18, 2019
Eh ok. But yeah, ridiculous... that word seems to cover it pretty well. And operating on two different levels seems about right too, because I have absolutely no clue what you are blabbering about. Guess I have live with you not being able to read this. How ever will I get up in the morning in the future?

I'm pretty disappointed by the initial reviews of this film. I wanted it to be very good. I'll try not to let it affect my viewing but it might be too late. I really liked Adam Carolla's doco though.
