The upcoming Brad Pitt movie that is being produced by Lewis Hamilton is one of the most exciting upcoming movies for F1 fans. Shooting for the on-track scenes for the movie started during this year’s British Grand Prix. Now Charles Leclerc has admitted to seeing a few images from the movie and he is more than impressed with them.
Before the Las Vegas GP, Charles Leclerc spoke about how excited he was for the movie and also said that he had seen a few pictures from the production.

Although Charles Leclerc has seen a few photos, we have not seen any official ones. Just a few that a couple of fans have taken while being on track for the British Grand Prix. Although F1 has released a few photos of Brad Pitt wearing his team’s racing outfit. The team’s name in the movie will be called APX. The relation for this name will be revealed later.
With Lewis Hamilton himself producing the movie, we can expect a few realistic scenes. The director hired for the movie, Joseph Kosinsky, directed Top Gun: Maverick which is the most beloved movie of 2023. Fans have seen it over and over for its realistic scenes. The actors were actually made to sit in a fighter jet in order to make the scenes look more realistic. It will be exciting to see what this group of people achieve for the upcoming F1 movie.
Lewis Hamilton will now have a lot on his hands. He recently signed a contract extension with Mercedes which will keep him on the F1 grid until the 2025 season. He will be trying to win a Championship with this extension.
When is Lewis Hamilton and Brad Pitt’s F1 movie releasing?
Earlier this year, it was speculated that the movie would come out in 2024 itself. However, the latest reports suggest that summer 2025 is a more realistic timeline. This is probably a good thing as we don’t want them to rush the movie and compromise on the quality.
The movie is also being produced by Apple TV. Once it is released, it will be available to stream on Apple TV as well. In recent years, F1’s popularity has really grown. With the Drive To Survive documentary on Netflix, it has widened the net for F1 fans.
Lewis Hamilton and Apple TV are looking to profit from this growth in F1 by making this movie. While it profits them, it could give us an amazing movie that can be relatable for die-hard F1 fans. It could also attract a large audience who are not following the sport. Actors like Brad Pitt attract a larger audience for the movies. So it is a good way to get fans to follow F1.

This year alone, Brad Pitt has attended multiple Grand Prix including the Las Vegas GP. Last year, he was a guest in the Mercedes garage during the United States Grand Prix. During this time, he spent some time with the team and Lewis Hamilton to get some insight into the sport.
These are the type of celebrities the fans love to see. A few weeks back before the Brazilian Grand Prix, Martin Brundle interviewed Machine Gun Kelly. It was clear that Kelly had no idea about the sport and was just there for publicity. F1 fans hated this. Hopefully, F1 will do something about this.
