It feels like forever-ago that the world first caught news that Ron Howard would be directing a feature film highlighting the rivalry between driving legends James Hunt and Niki Lauda during the dangerous late 70s era of F1 racing. Today we finally get our first real taste of what we can expect when RUSH hits theaters in September. If this trailer is any indication, I would say we are in for one epic telling of a real life rivalry that remains the stuff of legend.
RUSH stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Avengers, The first 5 minutes of Star Trek) as the Devil may care, brash but talented James Hunt facing a focused, calculating, and eternally confident Niki Lauda played by Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Bastards). To get a sneak peek at how the two drivers faced off watch the international trailer below. We will have an update when the U.S. trailer premieres this Thursday.
