Matt Damon and Christian Bale joined forces to take on the most grueling and prestigious race in the world.

The movie Ford v. Ferrari is based on a true story of Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon), an American car designer, and Ken Miles (Christian Bale), a British-born driver, who teamed up to overthrow the dominance of Ferrari, which won six times in a row from 1960 to 1965, at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The film is based on the creation of a revolutionary car which eventually won Le Mans in 1966 – the Ford GT40.

Ford v. Ferrari will open in cinemas on November 15, 2019.
