Ferrari | Trailer lands for Michael Mann’s new film

Share this Article:

Adam Driver is Enzo Ferrari, as the first full trailer for Michael Mann’s long-mooted Ferrari movie zooms into view. 

Michael Mann, it’s been too long. The man who directed the likes of Heat, Manhunter, The Last Of The Mohicans and the stunning The Insider has been away from cinema screens for what feels like a very, very long time. Primarily because he has been.

However! He’s back, and he’s telling the story of Enzo Ferrari. This is a tale he’s been looking to tackle in film for ages, and originally he was involved in the movie that became James Mangold’s Le Mans ’66 (or Ford V Ferrari: Dawn Of Justice if you live in the States).

The new film stars Adam Driver in the lead role, with Penelope Cruz and Shailene Woodley supporting. The book Enzo Ferrari: The Man, The Cars, The Races, The Machine by Brock Yates is the inspiration for the film, although thankfully for my typing fingers, the film will go by the name of Ferrari.

Troy Kennedy Martin has adapted the book for screen, and the trailer has popped up. Look at it! Brum brums!

The trailer has been issued by Neon, but it’s worth noting that Sky Cinema has the UK rights. The UK release date is earmarked for December 26th, with Sky giving it a cinema exclusive window.

A synopsis, you say? Right-o. Always looking to help.

It is the summer of 1957. Behind the spectacle of Formula 1, ex-racer Enzo Ferrari is in crisis. Bankruptcy threatens the factory he and his wife, Laura built from nothing ten years earlier. Their volatile marriage has been battered by the loss of their son, Dino a year earlier. Ferrari struggles to acknowledge his son Piero with Lina Lardi. Meanwhile, his drivers’ passion to win pushes them to the edge as they launch into the treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy, the Mille Miglia.

More on the film closer to its release. Expect cars.
