Must Watch: Full US Trailer for Ron Howard's Formula 1 Movie 'Rush'
"Their courage was inspiring." Following the international trailer debut last week, Universal has premiered the first full US trailer for Rush, the Formula 1 racing movie directed by Ron Howard. Starring Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl, the film is about two rival F1 drivers and the crash that nearly took the life of driver Niki Lauda. I've been anxiously waiting for this since we covered filming last year, and while that first trailer was damn good, this one is even better. Something about the rivalry and their passions and hearing the story of what drives them makes me incredibly excited to see this as soon as I can. Take a look!
Here's the first official US trailer for Ron Howard's Rush, debuted on Yahoo:
Director Ron Howard's (Frost/Nixon, Cinderella Man, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Willow) 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 includes Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer, Alexandra Maria Lara and Christian McKay. Universal will release Rush in theaters starting September 20th this year. Visit their official site.
