Universal has released a new trailer for director Ron Howard’s F1 bio-pic Rush. The film is set in the 70’s and centers around the rivalry between the charismatic James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and systematic Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), whose clashes on the track illustrate the differences between these two iconic drivers.
The previous trailers have outlined most of the plot, but this latest spot focuses on the intensity of the action sequences.
The supporting cast includes Olivia Wilde, Christian McKay and Natalie Dormer.
Two-time Academy Award(R) winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon) teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award(R) nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) 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.
