If fast cars get your adrenalin pumping Ron Howard‘s Rush will certainly rock your boat and in the new trailer for Rush Chris Hemsworth has the will to win, party, sex drugs & rock’n’roll.
Rush is a slightly different direction for Howard delving into the world of Formula One racing chronicling the intriguing rivalry between British racer James Hunt (Hemsworth) and Austrian Nikki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) in 1970’s. This was a rivalry that nearly cost both racers their lives taking the will to win to another level climaxing in the season finale in Fiji.
Instead of spoiling the broth like the previous trailer this new trailer concentrates on the racing, the passion and intensity giving Don and the family of Fast & Furious a run for their money. You get a real sense of aggression , determination between the two but also not scared to delve into the dramatic side of things too. In the 1970’s the F1 drivers lead rock star lives and with James Hunt we get a glimpse into his live whilst Lauda was more focused 24-7 on his craft. I’m not a F1 but it seems Ron Howard has gotten a grasp of the era and energy which is keeping myself intrigued in Rush.
Rush will arrive in UK&Ireland 13th September 2013 (USA 20th September), the film co-stars Olivia Wilde and Christian McKay.
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.
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.
