Director Ron Howard reunites with his Frost/Nixon screenwriter Peter Morgan for Rush, an adrenaline-charged drama based on the true story of Formula 1 racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) stars as Hunt while Daniel Brühl tackles the role of Lauda, with support from Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, and Christian McKay. Universal’s aiming for a September 20, 2013 theatrical release, and this latest video from the film takes us behind-the-scenes of the much-anticipated movie.
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.
