‘Ford v Ferrari’ Trailer Presents the Ultimate Underdog Story
James Mangold has wowed audiences from time to time with great movies like Walk the Line and Logan, and it looks like he’s about to wow audiences and critics once again with the absolutely thrilling-looking racing movie Ford v Ferrari, based on a true underdog story of how an American car was able to beat an Italian car, thanks to the ingenuity of the model’s engineering and a series of absolutely dedicated drivers.
Based on the lead-up to the famous 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race, along with the race itself, Ford v Ferrari follows the people behind the unlikely story of how an American car managed to outlast and outrace its European competitors. You can watch the trailer below:
The stunts here look absolutely breathtaking, and from what’s been shown, it’s clear that the movie is going to play to Mangold’s strengths as a director by delivering scenes of drama and comedy that hit as hard as the action sequences interconnecting them. In addition, Fox has released the first teaser poster for the film fairly recently, which you can see below:
