No one thought that Ferrari could be beaten in Le Mans until Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles and Ford came along!
Matt Damon and Christian Bale are teaming up in the new movie Ford vs Ferrari. It is based on the famous battle between the two big car manufacturers and trying to win the 24 hour Le Mans race.
The new film is being directed and produced by James Mangold, who also directed Logan and The Wolverine. It is set for release in cinemas on November 15th, 2019 and has a budget of $100 million! The film is a true story about the race in 1966 and is set to be a smash hit.
The trailer starts with British-born racing driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale) sat on a race track with his son. He is talking to him about his love for racing. Next, we see Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) approached by a Ford Motors representative. They approach the car designer asking him to help them create a car good enough to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Shelby tells them that to beat Ferrari, you don't just need speed but you need Ken Miles also. Ford is first apprehensive about hiring Miles, saying they “Don't trust him an inch”. Shelby approaches Miles and explains what he want's him to do. Miles doesn't believe him at first, laughing at the thought of Ferrari beating Ford.
Between Ford, Shelby and Miles they work together to try and create the perfect car. They experience a few bumps along the way including crashes and engine problems, but they genuinely believe it is possible. Shelby feels they are “going to make history”.
The trailer looks like it is going to be the perfect film for petrol heads who love racing. Out towards the end of the year, we can't wait to see it.
