Get ready for what could be the best racing movie ever made.
It's not easy to make a motorsport movie that can appeal to both enthusiasts and a larger, non-car-loving audience. Take a look at some of the past great racing movies such as "Le Mans" and "Senna" and try showing either them to your special someone who doesn't give a crap about cars. The evening likely won't end well. "Rush," on the other hand, has the potential to be not only awesome for car lovers but also for anyone who loves a good story full of drama and suspense.
Set to arrive in theatres this September, Ron Howard's "Rush" is the story of the 1976 Formula 1 season that featured the fierce rivalry between British playboy James Hunt and the focused and precise Austrian Niki Lauda.
We all know what happened to Lauda at the Nurburgring that year. And now it's time for those who don't to see the thrilling and dangerous world of F1. We're saying it right now: This movie is going to be epic. Absolutely epic. While we wait for it to arrive, check out this latest featurette about the film with Academy award-winning director Ron Howard and stars Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl. The attention to detail appears extraordinary and the casting is spot-on.
