The trailer for Ford v. Ferrari has just officially launched. Starring Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Jon Bernthal and Tracy Letts, the movie retells the heated rivalry between Ford and Ferrari, and one of the greatest victories for American automotive engineering during the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans in France.
Enlisted by Henry Ford II (Letts), Carroll Shelby (Damon) along with a small team must come up with a car that can outpace Ferrari’s coveted race cars, racing in one of the most gruelling endurance races that has long been dominated by the French, Germans and Italians. With a powerful Ford GT40 Mk.II ready to race, the team is missing just one crucial component, and that is a driver to match this new and unproven supercar — enter Ken Miles (Bale).
This movie will tell that story of how Ford beat the odds and did what all thought was the impossible. Watch the trailer above to get a first look one of the greatest racing rivalries retold by a star-studded cast. Racing fans can expect the movie to hit theatres this coming November 15.
