The world of Formula One is in heated controversy at the moment with the secret Tyre testing but nearly 40 years ago all the focus was on two men James Hunt and Nikki Lauda the main focus for Ron Howard‘s Rush.
Rush is set in the 1970’s Formula One world chronicling the epic rivalry between James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Nikki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) merely week’s after Lauda’s near death crash weeks before.
We have a new behind the scenes featurette was virtually drives you through the films whole plotline perfect for someone who may not know alot about the classic rivalry like myself! F1 drivers where the overpaid celebs like footballers of today mixed with a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, you could say Hunt and Lauda where the Ronaldo and Messi of their time. What I’m interested in seeing what we’ll see behind the flamboyant racing and Howard, Hemsworth and Bruhl do there best telling about the compelling dramatic side of the film showing that you don’t have to be a F1 fan to enjoy Rush, which possibly could be Ron Howard‘s best film in a long long time?!
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
