'Apex' release date confirmed

Filming has been underway for the project since last year, with it being seen shooting at the British Grand Prix with real replica F1 cars being used and driven by the actors for the movie.

The project has not been without its issues, with the SAG-AFTRA strikes delaying filming and it had struggled to find a distributor.

Furthermore, it had been reported that the movie’s budget had risen to $300 million, making it one of the most expensive films ever made, but Hamilton has gone on say these rumours are ‘inaccurate’.

Now, it has been announced that the film will be distributed by Warner Bros’ Pictures and will be released in theatres and in IMAX internationally on 25 June 2025 and in North America on 27 June 2025.

Made in collaboration with F1, all aspects of the community are also set to feature, including all 10 teams, the drivers, the FIA and race promoters, with the film having been shot in real time at several race weekends.

Production for the film with continue at this year’s British Grand Prix as well as several other races and will conclude at the season finale in Abu Dhabi in December.
