First Ford v. Ferrari Trailer Brings Christian Bale, Matt Damon Together
- Ford v. Ferrari to release November 15
- Bale stars as engineer and driver Ken Miles
- Damon plays visionary designer Caroll Shelby
Fox has released the first trailer for Ford v. Ferrari, which stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon as racecar engineer and designer, Ken Miles and Carroll Shelby, respectively. After being tasked by Henry Ford II (Tracy Letts) and Lee Iacocca (Jon Bernthal) in the 1960s, the two led the making of the Ford GT40, which would go on to rival the then-dominant Ferrari at the 24-hour Le Mans endurance race. Ford v. Ferrari has been directed by James Mangold (Logan), and co-stars Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Noah Jupe (The Night Manager), and Remo Girone (La Piovra) as Enzo Ferrari.
The first Ford v. Ferrari trailer opens with Miles (Bale) at a racetrack with his young son Peter (Jupe), as he says: “Look out there, out there is the perfect lap. You see it?” After his son says he thinks so, Miles adds: “Most people can’t.” Elsewhere, Shelby (Damon) is approached by Iacocca (Bernthal), who pitches to him: “Suppose Henry Ford II wanted to build the greatest racecar the world has ever seen, to win the 24 hours at Le Mans. What’s it take?” Shelby says it will take “something money can’t buy” and then retorts: “You need a pure racer behind the wheel of your car. That’s Ken Miles.”
