First Look At The Gran Turismo Movie Trailer

Releasing in August, esteemed director Neill Blomkamp (Demonic, Chappie, Elysium, District 9) helms the new Gran Turismo movie. He elaborates on this journey on the official PlayStation Blog.


The script is penned by Jason Hall (American Sniper) and Zach Baylin (King Richard). The movie recounts Mardenborough's incredible journey as he tackles the GT Academy contest, a competition organized by Nissan and Sony from 2008 to 2016. Winners of the contest secured a spot in Nissan's Driver Development Program.



The first theatrical trailer for the much-awaited Gran Turismo movie has finally been unveiled, offering a glimpse into the thrilling and inspiring story of Jann Mardenborough. The film, scheduled for an August release, is based on the true story of Mardenborough's rise to professional racing fame after winning the GT Academy esports tournament in 2011.



The film boasts a stellar cast, with Archie Madekwe portraying Mardenborough, alongside Orlando Bloom, David Harbour, Djimon Hounsou, and Geri Horner.

The film's production team includes Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan from PlayStation Productions, with Gran Turismo creator and Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi serving as an executive producer.



As of November 2022, the Gran Turismo series had sold a staggering 90 million units since its debut in 1997. Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi expressed his gratitude on the PlayStation Blog, stating, "This result is something that could not be accomplished by ourselves alone." He went on to thank the media, PlayStation, and retailers for their support, adding, "And above all else, I can’t ever thank enough the GT users and people of the GT community who have played our new titles, which at times could be said to have been very experimental."
