Academy Award Winning Director, Ron Howard (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon) is back and this time around, he’s bringing us what’s been called the most exhilarating film of the year! Centered around a real story, we see the rise and fall of Formula One driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). While he was once on the top, a great rivalry forms when new driver, Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) begins taking over the world of racing. The drive to win and the flame that fueled their rivalry would end up leaving Lauda injured and hospitalized. We get to see their relationship from the front seat and see how the two overcame obstacles to once again race for victory!
When I saw the first trailer for this film, I thought that they gave everything away. I stupidly assumed that this was just another racing movie. Then, I saw the second trailer and it really got my blood pumping! The fast-moving cars and the rivalry behind the two drivers is fascinating. Early reviews out of festivals have said that Rush is much more than a racing film and will have you thoroughly entertained all throughout. Being a Ron Howard film, Rush is sure to be picturesque and quite a thrill ride!
This film will be released on September 27, 2013 and is Rated R for sexual content, nudity, language, some disturbing images and brief drug use.
