Watch: Chris Hemsworth is a Racing Playboy in New Trailer for 'Rush'
"More powerful than even the fear of death itself, is the will to win." We've already seen a teaser trailer, a full theatrical trailer and a flashy adrenaline fueled trailer for Ron Howard's period racing drama Rush. Now one more film for the fall release has popped up that paints Formula 1 racer James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) as a bit of a playboy, while his opponent Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) is taking things a little more seriously. The trailer has a nice blend of drama and the thrill of the races along with the inclusion of a Jay-Z and Kanye West tune, and this looks like a solid new feature for Howard as a director. Watch below!
Here's the new trailer for Ron Howard's Rush from the film's YouTube channel:
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.
