Brad Pitt’s New F1 Movie Car Receives Varied Responses
Brad Pitt’s upcoming Formula One movie, in collaboration with Apple Studios, has sparked intriguing discussions online.
Entertainment Tonight reports that the film involves a partnership with the F1 world and was shot on actual racing tracks.
The renowned actor, an avid F1 enthusiast, will portray the character of Sonny Hayes, a retired driver who imparts his expertise to a rising star played by Damson Idris.
Following the release of a first look at Pitt’s car in the movie, social media users took to Twitter to share their opinions, resulting in a mix of reactions. Duracell even drew a comparison between the swift vehicle and their own product.
Director Joseph Kosinski, known for his recent success with “Top Gun: Maverick,” expressed his intention to prioritize practical filming techniques over heavy reliance on CGI for the racing scenes.
Kosinski shared with The Wrap, “The positive reception to the in-camera, authentically captured approach in ‘Top Gun’ reassures us that our method is effective and valued by audiences. It’s almost amusing to witness people’s admiration for genuine photography. Many younger viewers have rarely experienced it, being accustomed to CGI as a prominent tool in big-budget films. So, when something is shot authentically, it feels innovative to them.”
As anticipation builds for Brad Pitt’s F1 movie, the discussions surrounding his new car and the director’s commitment to authentic filmmaking continue to capture attention.
