Brad Pitt F1 Movie

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton is a co-producer and will also have cameos in the movie.

In a thrilling convergence of Hollywood star power and Formula 1 racing, the first trailer for the highly anticipated F1 film starring Brad Pitt has roared onto screens, leaving fans and moviegoers breathless. Directed by Joseph Kosinski, the mastermind behind "Top Gun: Maverick," this adrenaline-fueled project promises to redefine the racing movie genre.

Set to Queen's "We Will Rock You," the trailer features Pitt as Sonny Hayes, a veteran driver returning to Formula 1. His character's line, "Who said anything about safety?" hints at the film's focus on the risks and excitement of professional racing. A theme that Netflix’ ‘Drive To Survive’ has already touched upon, but this movie will take it a notch up. 

What sets this film apart is its unprecedented level of authenticity. Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton serves as a co-producer, lending his expertise to ensure the film captures the true essence of F1. In a groundbreaking move, all ten F1 teams are collaborating with the production, allowing filming at actual Grand Prix events. This level of access is poised to blur the lines between fiction and reality, creating a cinematic experience unlike any other.

The film's commitment to realism extends beyond the racetrack. Pitt, at 60, has been spotted driving an adapted Formula Two car at Silverstone, demonstrating a dedication to his role that has impressed both fans and industry insiders. This hands-on approach, coupled with the film's star-studded cast including Damson Idris, Kerry Condon, and Javier Bardem, suggests a project that's firing on all cylinders.

Behind the scenes, the film boasts an equally impressive lineup. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer joins forces with Pitt's Plan B Entertainment, bringing together a wealth of blockbuster experience. The fictional APXGP team, created specifically for the movie, adds another layer of intrigue to the narrative.

As the film races towards its June 27, 2025 release date, anticipation continues to build. With its unique blend of Hollywood glamour, technical precision, and unparalleled access to the world of F1, this project is poised to take the checkered flag at box offices worldwide. In the high-octane world of Formula 1, it seems Brad Pitt and his team are ready to leave the competition in the dust.
