The first trailer for the James Mangold-directed "Ford v. Ferrari" is here and it's got all the speed, machismo and explosions you might hope for. For an Oscar-caliber-type movie, that is.

Matt Damon plays  visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby, who is approached by Ford exec Lee Iacocca (Jon Bernthal) to build a car that can beat Italian racing legend Enzo Ferrrari's cars at Le Mans in France in 1966.

Christian Bale is hotheaded British driver Ken Miles, who isn't exactly on board the project at first. If you ever wanted to see a movie where Bale punches Damon in the face, here you go.

Borrowing a page from Martin Scorsese, the trailer is scored to The Rolling Stones classic "Gimme Shelter" (which, by the way, is from 1969).


Great lines include Tracy Letts (as Henry Ford II) telling Damon "Go to war," and Damon announcing, "We're gonna make history."

"Ford v Ferrari" opens November 15.
