First trailer, photos released for ‘Ford vs. Ferrari’ film

The first trailer and photos for Ford v. Ferrari have been released ahead of the film’s debut in the United States this fall. The movie is a retelling of Ford’s triumph over Ferrari at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans and stars Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby and Christian Bale as Ken Miles. Shelby requires no introduction, though for those who don’t know, Miles was Shelby’s good friend and test driver.

Other famous personalities being portrayed include auto industry heavyweight Lee Iacocca, played by Jon Bernthal, and Henry Ford II, played by Tracy Letts. And while we don’t see him in the trailer or photos, Enzo Ferrari will also make an appearance, played by Remo Girone. The film does not center on the drivers who fought it out at the 1966 Le Mans race. Instead, it will focus on the gritty life of building the Ford GT40, which finished first, second and third overall. In the same Entertainment Weekly interview, Damon explained, “To feel those cars come roaring by is why people love racing. It was really exciting to shoot because it didn’t require you to use your imagination, it was all happening around you.” The film is shaping up to be a favorite of auto enthusiasts this year. Fans can catch it in theaters across the U.S. starting November 15.

  1. Nothing against Matt Damon, but I just can’t picture him playing the role of Carroll Shelby. Damon seems too polished to portray a very convincing Shelby. Just my opinion. Won’t stop me from seeing the movie though!
