See Teaser for Formula One Racing Movie Starring Brad Pitt

2025 blockbuster – made in collaboration with Formula 1 – also stars Kerry Condon, Javier Bardem, Tobias Menzies, Sarah Niles, and Damson Idris

Brad Pitt puts the pedal to the metal — safety be damned — in the first teaser for F1, the upcoming racing movie filmed in collaboration with Formula 1. The first look at the fast-paced thriller premiered Sunday during the broadcast of the British Grand Prix.

F1 stars Pitt as former driver Sonny Hayes, who returns to the racing circuit with the goal of “building a car for combat,” as his character tells his crew chief played by Kerry Condon at the onset of the teaser. From there, the teaser is entirely dialogue-free, focusing instead on the racing action as soundtracked by Queen’s “We Will Rock You.”

The Joseph Kosinski-directed film, from Apple Original Films and Warner Bros. Pictures, boasts an all-star cast that includes Javier Bardem, Tobias Menzies, Sarah Niles, and Damson Idris, who plays Pitt’s teammate on the fictional APXGP racing team. Additionally, real-life Formula 1 racers like Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton (who also serves as a producer on the movie) appear as themselves in the film.


“The feature is being shot during actual Grand Prix weekends as the team competes against the titans of the sport,” Apple Original Films added of the movie. “Made in collaboration with Formula 1, the new film is immersed in the exhilarating and cinematic world of F1, as filming takes place at races on the sport’s calendar.”

F1 zooms into theaters on June 27, 2025.
