Ron Howard’s film Rush depicting the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship battle between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, Is due for release on September 20 2013 and you can read more about it here.
Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Daniel Brühl (Goodbye, Lenin!) portray the two pro drivers, James Hunt and Niki Lauda, in this upcoming drama. The rivalry reached its apex at the F1 championships of 1976, when the Austrian Niki Lauda survived a crash in his Ferrari 312 T2 on the German Nürburgring track.
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.
Joining Hemsworth and Bruhl in the film are Olivia Wilde and Natalie Dormer.
