Yeah, some of the reviews seem like they may not have actually watched the movie. Saw it said Ford and racing so assumed things. It is definitely leaning more toward Ford/Disney mutual stroking than quality show in non-"professional" reviews sadly

Pretty cool seeing those CGI'd GT40's and all the Cobras though.
Not wishing to sound rude mate, but that's a pretty dismissive review. Was it just crap because of Ferrari's villainisation?

It was a bit dismissive, sorry. I listed my problems with it in a later post. Go and see it for yourself and judge! Different strokes for different folks.

20th Century FOX released trailer #2 for the upcoming movie. It already has nearly 5 million views after just two days. Despite the inevitable hollywood "USA vs. the bad guys" nonsense that will undoubtedly infest the film, the thing that is for certain is this will appeal and raise awareness to the masses who are otherwise ignorant to Le Mans and motorsport. Quite frankly I'd rather accept that avenue as opposed to a film that appeals directly to the niche motorsport culture only for it to flop at the outset because John Doe and Mary Sue couldn't relate to it ala Steve McQueen's Le Mans.

Saw a trailer for the movie last night at the cinema, seems this has been re-titled in the UK as "Le Mans '66".
Historical inaccuracies or not, it looks to be entertaining.

I didn't realise that Carrol Shelby was the main man behind the GT40 project, I thought there was some sort of UK involvement...

There were a few bits in "Rush" where I rolled my eyes. Like doubling Brands Hatch for Fiorano. They just hung a few Ferrari and Agip sponsors on the fence at Clearways. Of course only a real fan would recognise these things and lets face it, these films are rarely pitched at the "real fans".

Originally the film was going to be based on the book " Go like hell " .
Which were John Wyer , s words to Stirling Moss at the 59 Le Mans , where Stirling drove flat out to make the Ferrari,s chase him & hopefully cause them to not last the race . This tactic worked & allowed the second Aston Martin team car of Roy Salvadori & Carroll Shelby to win .

We had the film producers contact us about possibly borrowing some cars for filming the 59 race scenes .

But that fell through , possibly because for the Hollywood backers & American directors wanted the story just to be about Americans .
So they seem to have invented a story where an American car maker got an American car racer to design & build an all American car to go & beat Ferrari at Le Mans

They could go with mid 2000s. I thought "Audi v Peugeot" was a pretty good film. Imagine "Lizards vs Risi" or "Corvette vs Aston"!

Eric Broadley is listed as one of the characters on IMDB, so it probably hasn't been entirely deleted from the film. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1950186...=tt_cl_sm#cast

Per Variety, the 1959 race is still in the film. https://variety.com/2019/film/review...ew-1203319686/


From the reviews I've seen it seems the movie is as much about the men fighting the bureaucracy inside Ford as it is America vs the world.


They've had real racers involved, Darren Law, Jeff Bucknum, etc. Let's give it a chance. It might be crap, but it might be good
