The latest trailer for Gran Turismo has been released, providing viewers with a deeper insight into the remarkable true story of Jann Mardenborough, a professional racing driver.
Mardenborough, hailing from Darlington, County Durham, was the fortunate winner of the GT Academy, a competition that afforded 90,000 gamers the opportunity to pursue a career in professional racing. In the upcoming film, he will be portrayed by the talented Archie Madekwe, known for his role in Apple TV’s science-fiction series See.
While the movie takes some creative liberties, altering certain aspects of Mardenborough’s life (such as his father’s profession), the essence of his incredible journey remains intact.
In addition, the GT Academy subjected the four finalists to a series of challenges, including intense races, a grueling military-style obstacle course, and thrilling aerial dogfights in stunt planes. These tests were designed to showcase their determination and skill.
“Gran Turismo revolves around the extraordinary true story of an unlikely team of underdogs: a struggling working-class gamer (Archie Madekwe), a former racecar driver facing failure (David Harbour), and an idealistic motorsport executive (Orlando Bloom),” stated the press release. The film is helmed by acclaimed director Neill Blomkamp, recognized for his sci-fi masterpieces such as District 9, Elysium, and Chappie.
“Together, they defy all odds and venture into the realm of the most elite sport in the world. Gran Turismo is an inspiring, thrilling, and action-packed narrative that triumphantly demonstrates the boundless power of one’s inner drive,” continued the summary.
The talented ensemble cast of the movie includes former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell Horner, Djimon Hounsou, Darren Barnet, Daniel Puig, Josha Stradowski, Thomas Kretschmann, Maeve Courtier-Lilley, Emelia Hartford, Pepe Barroso, and Sang Heon Lee.
For the filming of exhilarating action sequences showcased in the new trailer, director of photography Jacques Jouffret ingeniously utilized Sony Venice 2 cameras along with their Rialto system of extension. This technique, reminiscent of the filming style of Top Gun: Maverick, allowed the cameras to be positioned within tight spaces inside the vehicles. Gran Turismo is set to race into cinemas on August 11.
