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.

Didn't know Thor could drive like that. Is this part of Phase 2?

INCREDIBLE! Right up Ron Howard's alley,too. Perfect man to direct. Can not wait to see this!

Wow. This looks really cool. At his best, Howard excels at giving inspirational stories an incredible visual presence (Apollo 13 leaps to mind). Looking forward to this, Hemsworth and Bruhl look great, too!

Gotta see this!

That looks damn good.

Wow, this looks amazing. I grew up with Formula 1 because my dad was a huge fan of it, and we watched the races every Sunday here in Germany. Daniel Bruehl is cast perfectly, he absolutely looks the part and sounds just like Nikki. I'm really excited for this.

No point of seeing this movie...the trailer pretty much showed you the whole thing

Did you say the same thing when you saw the trailer for Apollo 13? Would you yell spoiler if I told you they made it back safely from space in that movie? Normally I would agree with you but a trailer for a movie that dramatizes real life have a very hard time spoiling the plot...

He is spot on this trailer was the entire movie - 2 hours of boring stone face dialog from Mr Thor.

I'm no big fan of Mr. Thor but did you notice the green image in beginning of the trailer? It's rated R. I have no clue why because the trailer showed nothing that would merit that, but I doubt its due to boring stone face dialog.

No kidding. And it looks to be about Niki more than James.

Hemsworth is just there to take his shirt off.

Man... this looks amazing... I hope someday a movie with the best of all time pop up somewhere. Senna was the greatest of all...

Good trailer, but I'm not interested in this in the slightest.

Why would anyone cast a wooden Aussie to play one of the coolest Brits who evr drove a race car? He cant even get the accent right!
Pagan on Apr 12, 2013
Like he's channeling Peter Dinklage's accent and failing. I agree, he's another Aussie with a jacked body and good looks but a terrible actor.

What i brilliant movie i just watched, right from the starting to the middle and all through the accident and stuff and Nikis come back and when like he and james hunt are waving at each other during nikis come back was just superb, i would recommend this movie to everyone, i give it a respectable 7/10. P.S OH FOR F***S SAKE STOP RUINING MOVIES BY REVEALING EVERY DAMN THING IN THE TRAILER.
WOOZY on Apr 12, 2013
Feel like I watched the whole movie!! It looks great though!!
P Didit on Apr 12, 2013
That looks bloody brilliant!

Chris Hemsworth is Vincent Chase from entourage. They got famous from superhero movies, thor and aquaman, then they went on to do formula one movies...If Hemsworth takes a movie about a drug dealer we should be worried cuz it will suck

A great story in the hands of a great director. I can't wait to see it! Formula one in its current state will never be as exciting as it was a generation ago. It's as if the NFL turned itself into high-tech flag football.
