20th Century Fox racing drama Ford v. Ferrari has come out on top as another weekend box office race kicks off. The based-on-a-true-story flick starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon reeled in $10.9 million domestically, with $2.1 million of that Friday total actually reflecting monies earned during domestic Thursday night previews.

Ford v. Ferrari takes us back to the 1960s as it tells the story of car designer Carroll Shelby’s (Damon) partnership with washed-up driver Ken Miles (Bale) as they try to create a Ford car fast enough to beat the unbeatable Ferrari during 24 hours of Le Mans in 1966. With positive reviews and early awards season buzz swirling around the James Mangold-directed picture, it’s should come as no surprise the film has come out on top. It also doesn’t hurt that Ford v. Ferrari is led by fan-favorite actors Damon and Bale, for what it’s worth.

More to come…
