“The movie does a really good job of showing that two guys who are very different can come together and attempt to do the impossible. This is a crossroads in both of their lives. It’s incredibly relatable. You really feel what’s at stake.
Ford V Ferrari is also coming to 4DX theaters, where it will capture the rapid swerves and turns of two legendary race cars – the Ford GT40 and the Ferrari P3 – zooming across the speedway through 4DX motion + vibration, plus heave, pitch and roll mimicking the thrilling and unpredictable drifting and braking motions. 4DX will intensify the breakneck speed and adrenaline of the racing sequences in the legendary showdown between Ford and Ferrari.
