Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story, the new film from Sony Pictures and director Neill Blomkamp, is based on the unbelievable true story of a team of unlikely underdogs – a struggling working-class gamer (Archie Madekwe), a failed former racecar driver (David Harbour), and an idealistic motorsport executive (Orlando Bloom). Together, they risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world. Gran Turismo is an inspiring, thrilling, and action-packed story that proves that nothing is impossible when you’re fueled from within. The film gave filmmakers the chance to capture the visceral sounds of cars.
