Motor racing in all its guises has proved rich fodder for documentaries down the years, offering gripping entertainment for even the non-especially-petrolheaded fraternity. The Brad Pitt-narrated Hitting The Apex will be hoping to match the narrative cut and thrust of recent docs like Senna and TT3D, with a look at the world of MotoGP. Pitt, a MotoGP fanboy, narrates the film which has a new trailer below.

Like those two docs, Hitting The Apex is touched by tragedy. Runs the synopsis: “Follow the intense rivalry between Valentino Rossie and Jorge Lorenzo, and explore the great friendship between Rossi and Marco Simoncelli, the rising star who tragically lost his life on the track. Marvel at the meteoric rise of young rookie, Marc Marquez, as he takes the sport by storm, despite suffering numerous injuries and enduring the fastest ever MotoGP crash.”

Directed by British documentarian Mark Neale, Hitting The Apex hits the cinema on September 2.

Brad Pitt found his military sidekick in his new Netflix feature War Machine. Anthony Michael Hall has been cast to star opposite Pitt in the satirical comedy from writer-director David Michôd (The Rover, Animal Kingdom). The project, which was inspired by the bestselling book The Operators: The Wild And Terrifying Inside Story Of America’s War In Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings, concerns a four star, “rock star” general whose lethal reputation and impeccable track record vaults him to command the American war in Afghanistan. While Pitt plays a character loosely based on Gen. Stanley McChrystal, Hall portrays the No. 2 in the military regime — Gen. Hank Pulver, who is also loosely based on McChrystal’s second in command Gen. Mike Flynn.

For those who have movie trivia at their fingertips, they’ll likely remember that at one point, Tom Cruise was attached to star in Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” but it didn’t pan out. And while the movie wound up being made with two actors who are yet to reach that kind of A-list status, the filmmaker reveals that when he was first gearing up the project, he had another big name he wanted to play Napoleon Solo in the movie.

“My original idea for Napoleon Solo was…Brad Pitt was who I wanted actually,” Ritchie told Happy Sad Confused. “I wanted him to play the older role, and I wanted the Russian to play the younger role, so there was going to be an age disparity there as well. And then Pitt told me to piss off, and Tom didn’t, so then I had Tom. And then needless to say, ‘Mission: Impossible[—Rogue Nation]’ interfered with the process, so he was occupying too much of the same space so that fell apart.”

Brad Pitt is recognized world-wide for his amazing acting on the big screen and his classic, suave style. Not only that, but he is the spouse of the beautiful actress, director and UN humanitarian, Angelina Jolie, and the father to multiple beautiful children.

When it comes to style, his taste in fashion has changed over the years – from trendy to edgy to rugged and everything in between – but he continues to surprise us and inspire us.

The origin story of the collection of angular, brightly painted homes called Make It Right has become a piece of New Orleans lore. The Lower 9th Ward neighborhood near the Claiborne Avenue bridge was more or less wiped out by floodwater surging through a gap in the levee wall in 2005. Then, as if by Hollywood magic, Brad Pitt appeared to attempt to rebuild it. At the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the flood, 109 homes stand where there once was only mud and wreckage. More homes are on the way.

“I’ll tell you, every time I drive over the Claiborne bridge, no matter what frustration I might be dealing with at the moment, I get this well of pride when I see this little oasis of color and the solar panels,” Pitt said in a telephone conversation Friday (Aug. 15) from Los Angeles.

An ecologist, architecture enthusiast and part-time New Orleans resident, Pitt called on the top building designers of the region, nation and world to draw up houses with striking appearances that married advanced environmental practices with affordable building methods. He also founded a nonprofit organization to see that those design gems rose on the empty landscape.

“I drive into the neighborhood and I see people on their porch,” Pitt said, “and I ask them how is their house treating them? And they say, ‘Good.’ And I say what’s your utility bill? And they’ll throw something out like, ’24 bucks’ or something, and I feel fantastic. It’s a reminder of why we’re there. It’s a reminder of why we push like we push. It makes it all worthwhile.”
