Check out the Universal Pictures’ latest trailer for Ron Howard’s anticipated F1 racing film Rush, which follows the true story of mutual respect and competition between drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. There’s definitely an emphasis on Hunt’s playboy exploits backdropped by the high level of risk in the world of racing.
Rush opens on September 27th. The film also features Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Jamie de Courcey,Pierfrancesco Favino and Natalie Dormer.
Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die. The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers, Thor) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.
