The first trailer for the upcoming flick Ford v Ferrari leaned heavily into the dramatic aspects of this true story of the Ford Motor Company's attempt to beat Ferrari at LeMans in 1966. As you can tell from this new trailer, they're now attempting to market the film as a two and a half hour thrill ride full of awesome racing action and none of that pesky talk-ety talk drama with which the first trailer was consumed.

Christian Bale and Matt Damon share above the title billing in this new film from James Mangold, the man behind Girl, Interrupted, Walk the Line, and Logan. Once upon a time, this film was going to be directed by Michael Mann, but he hasn't been able to get a film financed since the financially disastrous Blackhat, so Mangold beat him to the punch.

Ford v Ferrari premiered to mostly positive reviews at Telluride, before making a big push at last week's Toronto International Film Festival. 20th Century Fox clearly has Oscar ambitions for the film, as they're premiering it in the heart of awards season. Lord knows it doesn't really feel like an Oscar movie, but with this cast and release date, you can't help but think that's where this is headed. Ford v Ferrari cruises into theaters on November 15.
