Formula 1 and Apple Original Films have announced that their highly anticipated movie about the sport will be distributed in theatres and in IMAX by Warner Bros Pictures internationally on June 25th, 2025, and in North America on June 27th, 2025.

Created in collaboration with F1, the motion picture is being directed by Joseph Kosinski (Top Gun: Maverick) and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman (Top Gun: Maverick and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise), while Lewis Hamilton’s Dawn Apollo Films company is also involved.

Promising to immerse viewers in the exhilarating and cinematic world of F1, the film will star Brad Pitt as a former driver returning to the sport and Damson Idris as his team mate at APXGP – a fictional 11th team on the grid.

Described as “a landmark for the sport and cinema,” it has been filmed in real-time during Grands Prix around the world and involving the F1 community, including all 10 teams, the drivers, the FIA and race promoters.

Production of the movie, which began in 2023, will continue at this summer’s British Grand Prix and at several other races, before concluding at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in December.
