There are only 8 days left until the release of the movie "Love the Beast" made by Eric Bana and the producers have delighted the curious fans with a trailer. The video, which is to be found on the "Love the Beast" official web site, presents Eric Bana who wanted to become a racing driver when he was a child. As he confesses in the trailer, apart from the passion for racing, two things remained constant in his life: his friends and his "Beast".
As we have already told you in a previous news, the "Beast" is a Ford GT Falcon which has been Bana's first car. Trying to combine his passion for racing and driving, actor Eric Bana thought of making a film about the car he has owned since he was 15 years old. The racing vehicle which has been in the actor's possession for 25 years is part of his history and identity.
The movie is described as a "real life drama" of Eric Bana himself. After years of hard work to restore the car, Eric and 3 of his friends decide to sign the Beast up for one of the most dangerous motor races ever-The Targa Tasmania Rally. But since unexpected things can happen, a tragedy happened on the fourth day of the race. The day is a doomed one for Bana as the "man who was hell bent on trying to convey how much he and those around him loved “THE BEAST”, had just destroyed it."
Besides Eric Bana, the cast includes auto personalities like Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear and talk show host Jay Leno. The movie is made by Eric Bana's company Pick Up Truck Pictures and Melbourne-based film group Whyte House Productions.
