The Synopsis 

Gran Turismo is based on the unbelievable true story of a team of unlikely underdogs – a struggling working-class gamer (Archie Madekwe, “Midsommar”), a failed former racecar driver (David Harbour), and an idealistic motorsport executive (Orlando Bloom, “The Lord of the Rings”). 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.

From the age of five Jann Mardenborough had the dream of becoming a race car driver. The closest experience was from simulated racing. In 2011, Mardenborough was part of the 90,000 entrants during the GT Academy competition and concluded at third place. That was his ticket to get trained by and reached the win of signing a race contract with Nissan. After his phase with Nissan he has worked as a simulator, as a car development driver and a stunt driver for production companies. Including his own story seen in Gran Turismo.

I had the chance to connect with Jann Mardenborough to talk about his story being told in Gran Turismo. He expressed how he feels to see his story unfold on the screen.  As well as to how real the video game is compared to the real race cars physics wise.

If you love speed and the feel of adrenaline then Gran Turismo is a must watch for you on the big screen! The cinematography makes us feel as if we are on the road ourselves. Archie Madekwe who plays the former race car driver, Jann Mardenborough feels a little stiff at times, while David Harbour takes the story as soon as he is introduced. Gran Turismo will be greatly appreciated by the game’s true fans!

Gran Turismo now in theaters in the United States.
