Ron Howard's Rush

Well hello, Thor from the 70's. We've been keeping a close watch on the new Ron Howard film Rush, the Formula One drama/biopic about the rivalry between drivers Niki Lauda, played by Daniel Brühl, and James Hunt, played by Chris Hemsworth. The film has been shooting on location in the U.K., Germany and Austria, and just got a late September 2013 release date from Universal, which is good news. Now they've launched an official website (found via The Playlist) and featured on it are these first four official photos from Rush featuring some of the cast, plus even one with Ron Howard directing Brühl. See below!

Here's the first four first look photos, which you can view in fullsize on: rushmovie.com. Looking good?

Ron Howard's new movie Rush, from a screenplay written by Peter Morgan (The Last King of Scotland, The Queen, Frost/Nixon, Hereafter), is a biography about Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda and the 1976 crash that almost claimed his life. Mere weeks after the accident, he got behind the wheel to challenge his rival, James Hunt. The movie is set in the 1970s and follows the on-and-off track lives of Hunt and Lauda and their racing teams of McLaren and Ferrari. The cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer, Alexandra Maria Lara and Christian McKay. Universal just set the official release date for Rush late next year, hitting theaters on September 20th, 2013. We'll be keeping a close watch. Visit the official site.

    I'm cautiously optimistic that this might be the film that F1 has always deserved. But it will live and die on the quality of the race photography, and we haven't seen any of that yet.

    I'm getting tired of seeing Chris Hemsworth in just about every single new movie being released.
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Oh wow, Daniel Bruehl looks just like Lauda in his younger years! Well, and before his horrific burns, of course. Great casting. I grew up waching Formula 1 at home due to my dad being a huge fan of the sport, so I'm really looking forward to this.
