Sports action drama directed by Neill Blomkamp. Based on a true story, Gran Turismo (2023) centers the ultimate wish fulfilment of Jann Mardenborough (Archie Madekwe), a teenage Gran Turismo player whose gaming skills won a series of Nissan competitions to become an actual professional race car driver.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Jann Mardenborough: Who do you think the best driver is?
Friend: Probably Rory.
Jann Mardenborough: I would dust him in a lap!
Steve Mardenborough: Jann, all you do is play video games with some crazy dreams of racing cars.
Jann Mardenborough: Dad, you’re the one that told us to always do something we love.
Steve Mardenborough: Do you know what racing cars cost? Look around. It’s not our world, son.
Jack Salter: What is this?
Danny Moore: It’s a contest. The best Gran Turismo players in the world. A chance to compete in professional racing.
Jann Mardenborough: Dude, this is real.
Jack Salter: [to Danny] I’m sorry. Do you really think you’re going to take a kid who plays video games in their bedroom, and you’re going to strap them to a two hundred mile an hour rocket? It’ll tear them to pieces.
Jack Salter: It’s not going to work. The guys who race are elite athletes. Your kids are scrawny little gamer kids.
Danny Moore: Well, that’s where you come in.
Jack Salter: [training the gamers] Come on! Let’s go! It must be a new experience for you moving your legs.
Jack Salter: [to a trainee gamer] You puked on my lawn.
Jack Salter: When you’re in a race, the cockpit is going to be a hundred and forty degrees Fahrenheit. The G-forces will be twice what an astronaut experiences upon liftoff.
Jann Mardenborough: [trying to drive the race car] I can’t see anything!
Jack Salter: [to Jann after he swerves off the race course] Hey. Do you get extra points for that in the game? Jesus Christ.
Jack Salter: [referring to Jann] This whole thing is insane. But out of the couch-surfing nerds that you sent me, he is the best one.
Jack Salter: You made it.
Jann Mardenborough: Yes!
Danny Moore: [to Jann] Welcome to Team Nissan.
Jann Mardenborough: What’s next?
Jack Salter: [The major leagues. The other drivers are going to hate you.
Jann Mardenborough: Dude, what is your problem?!
Nicholas Capa: The name of the game is called racing!
Jack Salter: If you miss a line in the game, you reset. If you miss it on the track, you could die.
Jann Mardenborough: I know this track. I’ve raced it a thousand times.
