Universal Pictures has released the first official trailer for director, Ron Howard’s new Formula One biographical action film, Rush, written by Peter Morgan. The film is based on the true story about the passionate rivalry between legendary F1 drivers, James Hunt and Nika Lauda in the 1970s. Rush features Chris Hemsworth, Olivia Wilde and Daniel Brühl, and is set for release on 20th September 2013.
“RUSH is an upcoming biographical action-drama film directed by two-time Oscar winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), who teams once again with fellow two-time Oscar nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), about the 1976 Formula One season and the rivalry between drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
The film stars Chris Hemsworth as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl 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. Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara also star in the film.”
