The film based on Jann Mardenborough hit the big screen in August of this year.
Gran Turismo, the Hollywood biopic that was released in August this year, is set for its OTT premiere. The film based on the life of Jann Mardenborough, the teenage Gran Turismo player who became a professional race car driver, is set to stream on BMS Stream on October 5, 2023.
OTT premiere announcement:
Pre-orders for the Neill Blomkamp-directed movie will cost Rs. 249 (pre-rent) and Rs. 449 (pre-buy), respectively. No other OTT platforms have announced its premiere, although it seems like the film can also be rented on Prime Video on the same day.
In Gran Turismo, a working-class gamer (Archie Madekwe), a disgraced former racecar driver (David Harbour), and an idealistic motorsport executive (Orlando Bloom) create an odd but ultimately successful combination. They're taking a huge chance by teaming up to take on the best athletes in the world. When you have fire in your belly, nothing is impossible, and that's the message of the film.
The creative team:
Neill Blomkamp has directed Gran Turismo and he is known to have a distinctive visual aesthetic. Jason Hall and Zach Baylin wrote the script, and Jason Hall and Alex Tse created the story. The story is based on the Playstation Studios video game, so both aficionados and newbies can expect a high-quality cinematic experience.
Doug Belgrad, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, and Dana Brunetti served as producers, lending their skills to adapting the Gran Turismo universe for the big screen. Matthew Hirsch, Jason Hall, Kazunori Yamauchi, and Hermen Hulst serve as executive producers, guaranteeing a balance of imaginative direction and genuine gaming experience.
Cast members such as David Harbour, Orlando Bloom, Archie Madekwe, Darren Barnet, Geri Halliwell Horner, and Djimon Hounsou make this an impressive ensemble.
Critics were divided on the film, with some praising Neill Blomkamp's direction and the racing sequences but some finding fault with the script despite its $111 million worldwide profit. Mardenborough's 2015 accident on the Nürburgring Nordschleife was used as a plot point in the film, which caused some backlash.
