‘Ferrari’ Trailer Explores the Deadly Passion and Terrible Joy of Automotive Mogul’s Life in Adam Driver-Led Biopic

In the first full trailer for Neon‘s Ferrari, the Italian automotive mogul’s personal and professional lives collide.

The new Michael Mann-directed film stars Adam Driver as Enzo Ferrari, the ex-Formula 1 racer who built his own factory and established the Ferrari brand. Set during the summer of 1957, the movie’s two-minute teaser plays on a well-repeated concept in quantum mechanics: Two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same moment in time. The full look follows a previously released teaser trailer.

Ferrari is testing the limits of his new cars, resulting in sometimes explosive and even deadly crashes. At the same time, he is grappling with the life he built with wife and business partner Laura (Penélope Cruz) amid the death of their son, Dino, and his other family with mistress Lina Lardi (Shailene Woodley) and their son, Piero.

But he is also facing challenges at their company, where money is running out. The only way to save his legacy and business is to win the Mille Miglia, a treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy. Past and present, ambition and duty, dreams and delusions collide in an action-driven, emotionally explosive trailer for the upcoming film.

Based on Brock Yates’ book Enzo Ferrari: The Man, The Cars, The Races, The Machine, Ferrari is written by Troy Kennedy Martin. The film also stars 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.
