Watch: Racing Drama 'Rush' with Chris Hemsworth Gets a New Trailer

Since Universal is sending the high speed action bonanza Fast & Furious 6 into theaters this weekend, it's the perfect time to tout their racing drama Rush from director Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth. Set in the world of Formula 1 racing, the period drama follows two rival F1 drivers and the crash that nearly took the life of driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) in his rivalry with driver James Hunt (Hemsworth). It looks like a pretty stylish drama, and something a little different for Howard as a director. The trailer might sell the sizzle a bit more just for the Fast & Furious franchise audience, but it looks good.

Here's the second theatrical trailer for Ron Howard's Rush, originally from Apple:

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.

    Is that Olivia Wilde? If it is, I can't stand her poor acting.
  • Stanford Crane
    fantastic, I can't wait, in fact, I'd rather see this than the pile of super-hero movies

    Someone needs to layoff the color adjustments. Looks like someone used vomit as the palette.
