Who would've thought Hutchinson Island could look so...French?
The first trailer for "Ford v. Ferrari" dropped on Sunday night with an initial look at the racing drama starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale. Directed by "Logan" director James Mangold, the film also stars Tracy Letts, Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone and Ray McKinnon.
Here is the full synopsis:
The film follows an eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby (Damon) and his British driver, Ken Miles (Bale), who are dispatched by Henry Ford II and Lee Iacocca with the mission of building from scratch an entirely new automobile with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans World Championship in France.
The movie filmed last August in Savannah with a sequence that required extras in their best classy 1960s dress. According to the Savannah Regional Film Commission, production used Hutchinson Island as a stand in for the Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France — dressing up the track for the 1966 Grand Prix.
"Ford v. Ferrari" opens in theaters on Nov. 15.
