Matt Damon and Christian Bale join forces to thwart corporate talking heads by building a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and taking on Enzo Ferrari in James Mangold’s Ford v Ferrari.
The film, which is based on a true story, just got its first trailer, and boy are we in for a fun ride.
Outside of the stellar acting duo, Ford v. Ferrari appears to offer a range beautiful cars, action-packed race sequences, and a rivalry for the ages - all told with an unapologetic David v. Goliath tone. The wit, highlighted well within the context of the full trailer, gives off a Wolf of Wall Street vibe. I highly doubt this film will muster up the humor that DiCaprio did with that Oscar-nominated performance, but this still looks like a winner.
The film, which co-stars Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, and Noah Jupe will make an Award-season run as it races into theaters on November 15.
