The anticipation is building as Michael Mann’s latest creation, Ferrari, is set to hit theaters on December 25. This intriguing Neon film delves into the captivating world of Enzo Ferrari, the Italian racing legend who left an indelible mark on both car manufacturing and motorsports.
In the newly released full trailer for Ferrari, we get a tantalizing look at the intricate web of Enzo Ferrari’s personal and professional life. Adam Driver takes on the role of Enzo Ferrari, the ex-Formula 1 racer who not only created his own automotive empire but also gave birth to the iconic Ferrari brand. The film is set against the backdrop of the summer of 1957, and the trailer beautifully captures the essence of a fundamental concept in quantum mechanics: two objects can’t occupy the same space at the same time.
Ferrari explores the thrilling and, at times, perilous journey of Ferrari as he pushes the boundaries of his new cars, leading to explosive and sometimes fatal crashes. Simultaneously, he grapples with the complex tapestry of his life, interwoven with his wife and business partner, Laura (Penélope Cruz), the tragic loss of their son, Dino, and his parallel family with mistress Lina Lardi (Shailene Woodley) and their son, Piero.
The movie also delves into the challenges Ferrari faces in his company as funds run low. His only shot at saving his legacy and business is by conquering the treacherous 1,000-mile Mille Miglia race across Italy. Ferrari seamlessly weaves past and present, ambition and duty, dreams and delusions into an emotionally charged, action-packed trailer that leaves us craving more.
This compelling story is based on Brock Yates’ book, Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races, the Machine, with a screenplay by Troy Kennedy Martin. The ensemble cast includes Patrick Dempsey as driver Piero Taruffi, Jack O’Connell as driver Peter Collins, Sarah Gadon as Linda Christian, and Gabriel Leone as Fon de Portago.
Behind the scenes, Michael Mann takes on the role of producer, along with a talented team including P.J. van Sandwijk, Marie Savare, John Lesher, Thomas Hayslip, John Friedberg, Laura Rister, Andrea lervolino, Monika Bacardi, Gareth West, Lars Sylvest, and Thorsten Schumacher.
