Brad Pitt’s Upcoming Formula 1 Film Premieres in July 2025, Title Yet to Be Announced

After months of production, rumored delays, and filming that saw crews field Formula 1 cars at Grand Prix in the UK and Hungary, we finally know when Brad Pitt’s Formula 1 film will be released: July 2025. However, despite having a firm theatrical release date, the project has yet to be given a name.

Brad Pitt and Damson Idris will co-star in the upcoming racing film as an older racer who is summoned back to the Formula One paddock. The film is produced by Lewis Hamlton, has input from F1 teams across the grid, and has the backing of Formula One, which confirmed the release date this morning. 

We now know that it will be released in July 2025, with the film premiering on July 27 in the United States and July 25 internationally. The film, created by Apple TV, will be distributed by Warner Bros. and will premiere in cinemas before being released on the streaming service at a later date.

The still-untitled F1 film will be released on gigantic Imax screens throughout the world. The Hollywood Reporter explained:

The film will be released in North America on June 27, 2025, and reunites the filmmakers from ‘Top Gun: Maverick,’ including director Joseph Kosinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Internationally, the film will be released on June 25.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the picture was acquired by Apple in a contract that guaranteed a significant theater release with a window of at least 30 days, if not longer. At the time of the contract, it was evident that the picture would require a distribution partner. Apple has previously collaborated with Paramount on the wide theatrical distribution of ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ and Sony on ‘Napoleon.’

Brad Pitt F1 film obstacles emerge as reported costs soar to  record-breaking amount

The new picture is being described as one of the most realistic F1 films ever made, and its pursuit of perfection is costing more than Avatar.

Despite growing costs and a deadline for release, the film has failed to get an official title. Pitt is an ex-F1 driver who returns to the paddock to join Idris at APXGP, a fictional team that competes against established names like as Ferrari, Williams, and McLaren. (It will presumably be called Fast, Race, or something. —ED)

In addition to Pitt, Idris, and Hamilton, the film stars Kerry Condon, Javier Bardem, Tobias Menzies, and Sarah Niles. Its producers include Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ Chad Oman and Plan B Entertainment’s Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.

With so many major stars on board, the film should be able to resolve the pit stop concerns that surfaced last year.
