    Le Mans '66 (Mangold), aka Ford v Ferrari



    Cool!

    Mangold is no fan of CG for the sake of it. He, after all, is the person who famously railed against the notion of a "city-block destroying CG fuckathon" in his script for Logan. And while there are visual effects aplenty in Le Mans '66, they’re mainly to help conjure a sense of period, or to extend the track on which Bale, Damon, and the coterie of top drivers Mangold assembled for the film, strutted their funky stuff. And strut it they did. "We had a litany of vehicles, we got out on tracks, and we raced 'em," says Mangold. "Christian drove. Matt drove. The entirety of the races are analogue. It’s really physical, which was the whole point for me. There is still something unique about that which is real."

    Yep, I'm def in for this. Kind of dumb to use "Gimme Shelter" in anything movies nowadays, but looks like Mangold is going all out here.

    I think it's a song that ALWAYS work because it's a fucking masterpiece but it's hard not to think of Scorsese when you hear it set to images.

    The first trailer was great, this one is even better. Especially since it doesn't seem to give away the entire damn plot. This looks really damn good.

    The few early reviews I’ve read have not been very kind.

    Who the hell dubbed Damon's final line in the trailer? Cause that's hilariously, blatantly not Matt Damon. Even when he does accents, you can usually hear The Damon underneath.

    I like the trailer though.
