New ‘Ford v Ferrari’ Trailer Puts the Pedal to the Metal
The second trailer to Ford v Ferrari, the latest film from James Mangold (who previously directed Walk the Line and Logan), puts emphasis on the famous race that made Ford a serious name in the racing business.
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… In spite of the clear conflict between the car’s designers and the daredevil driver. You can watch the trailer below:
Ford v Ferrari looks like a wild ride that continues to show that Jame Mangold is a force to be reckoned with. It seems that critics agree, as the movie’s screening at the Telluride Film Festival was met with an overwhelmingly positive response overall, which should bode well for the movie when it opens in a little over a month. In addition, Fox has released the second poster for the film, which you can see below:
