Michael Mann turns up the heat in new Ferrari trailer

“Two objects cannot occupy the same point in space at the same moment in time.” So explains Adam Driver as Enzo Ferrari in the latest trailer for Michael Mann’s biopic of Il Commendatore.

Ferrari succinctly and unemotionally predicts the potentially catastrophic coming together of two racing cars before posing the question, “Are you a sportsman or are you a competitor? If you get into one of my cars you get in to win.”

The 1957 Mille Miglia was make or break for Ferrari. The company was losing money hand over fist, and only a win at the greatest road race in the world rescue its reputation. To make matters worse Ferrari and his wife Laura had just lost their son Dino to muscular dystrophy, and his marriage was facing ruin.

The pressure on Ferrari and his drivers was immense. “This is a gun pointed at our head,” says Ferrari. Piero Taruffi, Wolfgang von Trips, Olivier Gendebien, Jacques Washer, Alfonso de Portago and the other Scuderia pilots would have to prove that they were indeed competitors.

This is the setting for what looks like another Mann masterpiece with a new trailer giving a closer look at Driver’s performance as Ferrari and Penelope Cruz as Laura, along with action scenes with Mann’s trademark immersive direction.

History buffs will know that the story is both tragic and triumphant. “All of us are racers,” says Ferrari. “It’s our deadly passion.”

To witness this on the big screen you’ll have to wait until Christmas when Ferrari hits cinemas.

    Amazing, movie about one of the most iconic Italian companies (and legends) somehow couldn’t find any Italians for the leads.
