Six new photos have been released for Ron Howard's Formula One racing film Rush. The images feature Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as James Hunt and Daniel Bruhl (Inglourious Basterds) as Niki Lauda. The script was written by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), and it also stars Jessica Chastain and Oliva Wilde (Tron: Legacy).
I don't know much about Formula One racing, but I love the films Howard makes, and so far this looks like it will be a great and exciting movie. Are you looking forward to seeing this movie? I just Hope Howard is able to direct The Dark Tower as soon as he's done with this on.
Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® 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.
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.
Rush hits theaters September 20th, 2013.
