There are still many months until the checkered flag is waved for the end of awards season, but James Mangold’s ‘Ford v Ferrari’ is generating serious Oscar chatter as things start to rev up. The ‘Logan’ director’s latest movie tells the tale of the Ford Motor Company’s attempt to build a car that could compete – and beat – the dominant Ferrari team at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 1966, and critics are calling it thrilling, inspiring cinema. Matt Damon stars as car designer Carroll Shelby, Christian Bale as race car driver Ken Miles, Tracy Letts as Henry Ford II, and Jon Bernthal as Lee Iacocca, and all deliver performances that have them in awards contention. As the movie heads to theaters on November 15, Rotten Tomatoes correspondent Mark Ellis sat down with Damon, Bale, Letts, Bernthal, and Mangold to talk about putting the audience in the driver’s seat, choreographing one of the most wonderfully sloppy movie fights in years, and some of the movie’s most memorable moments. Plus, each man shares his first car – and why they think theirs would be the fastest of the lot.
