During the annual CES conference, Sony Interactive Entertainment shared a first look at the upcoming Gran Turismo movie. The movie is the second of PlayStation Studios’ IPs to receive the TV/Movie treatment, with HBO’s The Last of Us set to release in just around a week and a half. Check out the exclusive sneak peek of Gran Turismo below:
Based on the true story of Jann Mardenborough, the film is the ultimate wish fulfillment tale of a teenage Gran Turismo player whose gaming skills won a series of Nissan competitions to become an actual professional racecar driver.
The movie is being directed by Neill Blomkamp, who is best known for District 9. Additionally, the screenplay is by Jason Hall and Zach Baylin. More trailers and looks at the movie will surely be headed our way soon, especially with the movie releasing late in the summer.
Also at CES, the PlayStation 5 has sold 30 million units as confirmed by Jim Ryan tonight. Additionally, the PlayStation VR 2 will have 30 titles available at launch. Some of the titles launching with the PSVR2 include Resident Evil Village, No Man’s Sky, and Horizon: Call of the Mountain.
Gran Turismo will hit movie theaters on August 11th.
