The latest film to have its roots in a video game has just arrived in UK cinemas, telling the unbelievable true story of how one man went from die-hard gamer to professional racer after winning a competition.


Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story stars Archie Madekwe as Jann Mardenborough, while the cast also includes the likes of David Harbour, Orlando Bloom, and even Geri Halliwell.

Meanwhile, the film also features a number of recognisable songs including a couple that you might not necessarily associate with the world of motorsport, such as Kenny G's Songbird and Enya's Orinoco Flow.

But the reason for their inclusion is that these are the songs that the real Mardenborough liked to listen to to calm himself down before big races – a practice which he continues to this day.

You can find the full list of tracks in the film below, as well as details about the original score composed by Lorne Balfe and Andrew Kawczynski.
