Matt Damon Teams Up with Thin Christian Bale in Debut Trailer for ‘Ford v Ferrari’

While I couldn't give a shit less about auto racing, films about the sport are usually pretty good. From good old fashioned fun like Six Pack and Talladega Nights to prestige pictures like Rush and the upcoming Ford v Ferrari, filmmakers have been able to mine drama from, to quote George Carlin, "a bunch of redneck jerk-offs driving 500 miles in a circle."

The film tells the story of a team of engineers and a wild card driver who set out to prove that American cars could compete in serious auto racing. Matt Damon and Christian Bale star as the chief engineer and driver, respectively, who are hired by Lee Iacocca (Jon Bernthal) and Henry Ford II (Tracy Letts) to build a car that can outrun Ferrari. I would imagine that, along the way, they all learn a little something about life. Also on hand is Outlander's Caitriona Balfe playing Bale's age-inappropriate wife.

The film comes to us from James Mangold, the man behind Logan, Walk the Line, and Girl, Interrupted, so expect plenty of Oscar buzz, especially with Christian Bale having lost weight again to play real life driver Ken Miles.

Ford v Ferrari races into theaters on November 15.
