Ford V Ferrari Trailer Officially Released

The Ford V Ferrari trailer gives us our first look at motorsports’ greatest rivalry put to film.

The film aims to tell the true story of how Ford enlisted Carroll Shelby to “go to war” against Ferrari in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. If you know your history then you are already aware of how the race turns out. Though this film, instead focuses on the journey to the ultimate result. Most people don’t know how crazy the idea of taking on Ferrari was. Especially from a company like Ford.

To say the “blue oval” was an underdog going into the race is a massive understatement. The film features Matt Damon playing Carroll Shelby and Christian Bale playing British driver Ken Miles forming an unlikely partnership to take on the prancing horse.

The film is directed by James Mangold who also directed Logan and Walk The Line. If his past work is any indication, it could end up being an Oscar contender. This first Ford v Ferrari trailer already has me sold. Check it out for yourself below!
