Ron Howard's next film Rush looks so freakin' great! It's set in the 1970s in the wold of Formula One racing, which is a sport I'm not really familiar with, but the setting makes for an awesome-looking film. Chris Hemsworth plays Formula One racer James Hunt and Daniel Brühl plays his rival, Niki Lauda. The movie is based on the true story of these two racers' intense rivalry.
The movie is set to be released on September 27th, and it also stars Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Jamie de Courcey, Pierfrancesco Favino, and Natalie Dormer.
This latest featurette includes Howard talking about the film, and also shows off some really cool racing footage.
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.
